Inside The Mind of a Burglar… Think Like Them and React!

inside the mind of a burglar

How do burglars think? Have you ever wondered what goes on in the mind of a burglar? It is worth thinking about because it really could help you prevent burglary.

As a North London Locksmith I have learnt a lot about burglaries and burglars over the past years. This is what I know about how burglars operate….

Motive

Financial gain and perhaps a buzz.

Attire

Blend in to look like a resident or a workman perhaps. Inconspicuous is the key.

Hours of Work

8am – 11am              A good time to watch and learn what peoples habits and routines are.

3pm – 4pm               School pick up time means lots of empty homes

6pm onwards           Darkness and quiet streets allow burglars to move unseen

1am – 3am               Whilst most people sleep

Looking For

  1. Poor attention to security, sub standard locks
  2. Empty properties – lights off, no movement of curtains, grass uncut, deliveries piling up
  3. Carelessness – not locking the deadlock, keys left in the door!
  4. Keys left out
  5. Entrances with obscured views
  6. Signs of valuable goods
  7. Cash, jewellery, electronic equipment.
  8. Easy ways to access – ladders etc

Means of Access

There are many ways to prevent burglary that are low cost or even no cost! This post has some clever ways to keep burglars away

When everything is said and done, the fail safe option for securing windows and doors is bespoke security grilles. North London has seen an increase in demand for these. Not only are Grilles the ultimate in security but they are also becoming more and more desirable in terms of aesthetics.
