According to a recent article on the Maitland Mercury, there has been a recent break-in wave across the Port Stephens-Hunter region, with Maitland being the hardest hit. During a 2 week period across March and April 19 homes were broken into, which was a 46% increase on the normal fortnightly average. As a result, the Neighbourhood Watch and the Police are spruiking the benefits of installing home security systems for people who live in the area. CCTV cameras resulted in the capture of an offender at one particular unit block who had them installed after a number of robberies. Security technology has developed significantly over recent years and you can now protect your property for a very reasonable price. If you are in an area, such as Maitland, that is going through a period of criminal activity, contact West-Tec to see how we may be able to help.
