Ever wondered how many burglaries take place in your postcode? Well, Yale’s free Crime Watcher app can help you find out exactly that.
Research from the Office of National Statistics revealed that last year (June 2014-June 2015) there were 750,000 incidents of domestic burglary recorded; but with the day-to-day pressures of juggling work and family life, home security can often become an afterthought.
This is where Yale’s free Crime Watcher app is here to help. With burglaries on the increase, the app explains how you can secure your home and possessions, offering straightforward security advice for each part of your property.
Perhaps the app’s most important feature is its postcode look-up capability, which displays current burglary statistics within a mile of your home during a one-month period. This is especially handy for those who are looking to check burglary statistics in a specific postcode when considering moving home.
The app is powered by the Police API system meaning the information is both up to date and accurate, with a user-friendly design.
