An Garda Síochána recently created a crime prevention information sheet as part of its Supporting Safer Communities campaign.

According to an Garda Síochána:

‘Burglars like easy opportunities. If they have to make a lot of noise, spend a lot of time or risk being seen, the chances are they won’t bother. A good rule of thumb is the 3 minute delay test. If you can deny entry for 3 minutes or more, chances are the burglars will go elsewhere.

They have released a simple home security survey to determine how well your home is secured against burglary.
