Property crime is the most common type of crime in the U.S. today, according to data from the FBI. In fact, property crimes in 2018 cost an estimated $16.4 billion in losses in the U.S.

Larceny theft is a broad category of crimes. It includes many that are not restricted to residential areas (such as shoplifting). Within that category is a host of residential property crimes, such as theft from homes and automobiles.

Top Three Types of Property Crime in 2018 (by % of Total Property Crimes)

Burglary is A Residential Problem

Burglary is theft or intent to steal, which also involves an illegal home or building entry. The vast majority of burglaries (about 70 percent) occur on residential property.

Do You Know Your Local Crime Rates?

Crime may be down nationwide, but overall, criminal activity is highly dependent on location. Is your neighborhood as crime-free as you think? For example, you may be shocked to know Washington, D.C., has the highest property crime rate of any state or district.

Time-tested, professional armed security is, first of all, a sure way to increase your property’s safety. Secondly, it gives the people within the peace of mind they need to enjoy living there.
