As you can see from the infographic that is filled with crime statistics provided by the FBI, the highest rates of burglary are in the South. This, of course, includes us in Lake County, FL.
While it is near impossible to stop a determined thief 100% of the time, there are steps that can be taken to limit the possible access they have to your home. Steps can be taken that can make it take long enough that the burglar loses interest or feels that it is taking too long to access your home.
It doesn’t matter if you live in Lady Lake, The Villages, Fruitland Park, or the surrounding areas, give DNA Locksmith a call and we will help evaluate your security and possible security needs.
Not all areas of Lake County, FL will be affected as much as other areas. For example, The Villages, FL will tend to have fewer burglaries since security is constantly roaming the area and the neighbors tend to look out for each other.
