With over 1 million annual burglaries in the U.S. alone, many of us can relate to having our sense of security being taken away along with our stolen property.
 
In its latest study, the team at ADT looked at data from more than 18,000 law enforcement agencies to find out the times and places with the highest risk of burglary. 

Here are some key findings: 
  • New Mexico has about 8.2 burglaries per 1,000 residents (2nd nationwide);
  • Santa Fe has about 16.2 burglaries per 1,000 residents (8th nationwide); and
  • While most burglars live within 2 miles of the victim, less than 14 percent of burglary cases are solved annually.
