The FBI reports that overall burglary, larceny, and motor vehicle theft have seen a significant decline in the last few years.



Though the overall trend of burglary statistics shows decreases, thousands of homes are still being broken into each year (around 325,000). Most of these homes are being broken into in plain view during the day.


In 2015, it is estimated that the total losses due to burglary reached $14.3 billion.


There are still around 2.5 million burglaries a year, 66% of which are break-ins. Unfortunately, the police solve only 13% of reported burglaries due to lat of a witness or physical evidence.
