BURGLARIES in Limerick have decreased, according to new CSO figures.
The figures, highlighted by PhoneWatch, showed that there was a 17 per cent decrease in the amount of burglaries reported across Limerick city and county.
However, according to PhoneWatch, over 9,000 homes in Ireland have experienced a burglary.
With the dark evenings now here to stay for the coming months, the advice from PhoneWatch is to get winter ready and make sure homes are protected.
Eoin Dunne, Managing Director of PhoneWatch, said: “The past 12 months have shown a welcome decrease in our burglary levels nationally, however, we should bear in mind that we are coming into the period when typically burglaries are at their highest and our homes are most vulnerable.”
