How Safe is the Area You Live in?

Being burgled is a worry for many, lucky it has never happened to me. But it has happened to my sister and her partner and their two young kids. It actually happened the very first night they moved into their new home. He nicked my sisters laptop, a camera and even my 4-year-old nephews money-box. Since then she has been more aware of securing her house when the go out and before they go to bed.

 

 

Do you know how safe is the area you live in? Here are some statistics showing the council area and the burglary rate:

 I live in Derbyshire, so we are in the middle. But to be honest I did expect Derbyshire to be lower down the list.
