Wisconsin Home Security Systems
Wisconsin enjoys a violent crime rate that is lower than the national violent crime rate by nearly 45%, and a nonviolent crime rate that is lower than the national average by over 2%. In 2009, there were 26,740 burglaries recorded in Wisconsin; and in 2010 there were 26,475, which marks a 1% decrease from 2009 to 2010, according to CityRating.com and WI.gov.*
The average loss per burglary in Wisconsin in 2010 was $1,631, and approximately 16% of burglaries were cleared. About 52% of Wisconsin burglaries involved forcible entry. In general, cities with populations under 50,000 had lower burglary rates, while larger cities had higher burglary rates.
For residential burglaries, where time of the incident could be established, 64% occurred during the day -- between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. Burglary is one of the most commonly committed crimes, and with low clearance rates, it is unlikely that victims will recover their stolen property
