1. A typical burglary lasts from 90 seconds to 12 minutes, which averages to 6 minutes and 45 seconds. The Boise police average response time to burglary alarm calls (Priority 2 calls) is 7 minutes 27 seconds.
2. Most burglars already have a rap sheet due to robbery, assault, or drug-related offenses. Drug violations in Boise grew by 22% last year while fraud and theft grew by 13.8% and 12.7% respectfully.
3. Single-family, detached homes are the most likely targets for burglars. This makes sense because there are generally more access points and more places for a burglar to hide.
4. A home without a home security system is three times more likely to be broken into than a home with a security system.
