Is Home Security Really a Problem?

It is estimated that 653,500 (8.4%) of all households in Australia within the last 12 months were victims of an actual or attempted home break-in. That means, on average, a home is burgled less than every 2 minutes of every day of the year. Don't be next.

For victims of break-in, 24% thought there was nothing the police could do. Even if your home has a security system, the response time of police or private security, to a triggered alarm, can be on average 30-45 minutes. This gives intruders who have violated your property ample opportunity to get their hands on your precious possessions.


Even more alarming is the incidence of sexual assault experienced by female victims that approximated 62,700 reported incidents in the last year. The most frequently reported locations where the sexual assault had taken place were at the victim's home (40%).

In a recent nationally conducted neighbourhood problems survey, only 25% of those interviewed considered they experienced no problems or disturbances in their local neighbourhood.

Of those incidents that created anxiety, amongst the most commonly perceived problems were:

  • Housebreaking/burglaries/theft from homes (44%)
  • Dangerous/noisy driving (39%)
  • Vandalism/graffiti/damage to property (27%)
