Dark season - break-in time?
The Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Home Affairs (BMI) and the German Insurance Association (GDV) have published the crime statistics for 2018 and thus the current slump figures. Housing burglary has fallen by 16.3 percent compared to the previous year. The amount of losses had also fallen by 50 million euros and, at 310 million euros, was at its lowest level since 2007.
According to the BMI, however, the proportion of attempted break-ins continues to rise. In Germany, for example, around 45 percent of typical attempted burglaries fail because of burglar-resistant technology for doors, french doors and windows because perpetrators do not enter the house quickly enough and break off the attempted burglary.
This development disproves the often-awakened impression that the individual is powerless against the increasing number of burglary offences. The GDV also confirms that burglar-resistant construction elements make it more difficult for criminals to do their job.
