Our homes are sanctuaries where we should feel safe and secure. The CSO's recorded crime index released in December 2016 shows almost 19,562 burglaries and related offences occurred nationwide for the first 9 months of the year to September 2016. Eoin Dunne, Managing Director of PhoneWatch said “There was a 31% decrease in burglaries which is extremely welcome and continues a positive trend we have been seeing this year. The Dublin metropolitan area has the highest rate of burglaries – over 9,000 since the start of the year compared to just 1,359 in the Western Region".
