The academic year is coming to an end this June and on average 70% of student accommodation is empty during the holiday period. Have you considered using this time to make improvements to the security of your block?
Students are known to be at high risk for all crime, not just domestic burglary. It is estimated that 30% of students will fall victim to a crime while at university. Burglary makes up 22% of those crimes.
Today, students have more high value consumer goods per head than the rest of the population; 85% own a computer or laptop, 86% have a phone and many have their own TV. Over three times as many students own high value goods compared to 10 years ago. Police research shows that students are the most targeted section of society by criminals and this is likely due to the knowledge that they will have these items that are easy to sell on for a decent profit without being caught.
Students who have been victims of burglary generally lived in accommodation with fewer security measures so what can you do to help prevent these crimes?
