Facts and Statistics

Property Crimes / Burglaries

  • In 2015, a property crime occurred every 3.9 seconds in the US. Approximately twenty-five property crimes were reported per 1,000 inhabitants in 2015.
  • The number of property crimes committed in 2015 totaled about eight million– this is 2.6% less than 2014’s total.
  • More than 12.4 billion worth of property was reported stolen in 2015, and only 26.1% was recovered.
  • Of all property crimes reported in the US in 2015, 42.2% occurred in the South, followed by the west with 26.6%, the Midwest with 19.3% and the Northeast with 11.9%.
  • 72% of all burglaries reported in 2015 were on residential property.
  • Historically, the risk of burglary is higher for rental properties than occupant-owned properties. If you rent, consider the advantages of a wireless security system.
  • Burglars gain entry via open or unlocked doors or windows in more than half of all unoccupied residential break-ins; damaging, removing, or destroying a door is the most common type of entry used in burglaries.
  • The rate of household burglaries tends to be highest in summer and lowest in winter or spring.
  • Police only solve about 13% of all reported burglaries, mostly due to a lack of witnesses or physical evidence.
  • In 2015, 52% of all residential burglaries (in which a time was reported) occurred during the daytime.
  • Being the victim of a home burglary can increase the risk of future victimization for burglary, as offenders often target the same residence more than once.
  • Between 2003 and 2007, a household member was present in roughly one million burglaries and became a victim of violence about 26% of the time. The highest rate of burglaries committed with a household member present occur in homes occupied by single females with children.

Fire Alarms

  • Each year, nearly 3000 people die in us home fires
  • In 23% of the home fire deaths, smoke alarms were present but did not sound. In more than half of the reported home fires in which the smoke alarms were present but did not operate even though the fire was large enough, batteries were missing or disconnected. Nuisance alarms were the leading reason for disconnected alarms.
  • More than half of the smoke alarms found in reported fires and two-thirds of the fire alarms found in homes with fire deaths were powered by battery only.
  • Most homes still have smoke alarms powered by battery only. In a 2007 American Housing Service (AHS) 67% of the respondents who reported having smoke alarms said they were powered by battery only.
  • Cooking is the number 1 cause of home fires and injuries.
  • Smoking is the leading cause of fire deaths.
  • Heating is the second leading cause of home fires, fire deaths and fire injuries.
  • Electrical failures or malfunctions are factors in roughly 50,000 reported fires each year.
  • US fire departments responded to 386,500 home fires.
  • Someone was injured in a reported home fire every 40min.
  • Roughly eight people died in home fires every day.
  • US fire departments responded to 386,500 home fires.
  • A fire department responds to a home fire every 82 seconds.
  • 83% of all fire deaths and 79% of fire injuries resulted from home fires.

Carbon Monoxide
CO (Carbon Monoxide) is colorless, odorless, tasteless, and non-irritating. It is a by-product of combustion produced by common household appliances such as:

  • Gas or oil furnaces
  • Water heaters
  • Clothes dryers
  • Barbecue grills
  • Fireplaces
  • Wood burning stoves
  • Gas ovens
  • Car exhaust

Low-level symptoms of CO poisoning are similar to the flu and are often misdiagnosed. Headaches, nausea, fatigue and dizziness are all non-specific symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning.
