Spring is quickly coming to an end, which means one thing: summer! As students everywhere rejoice, homeowners are left to sit and wonder if their homes are safe. Why? With summer vacations and an increase in temperature also comes an increase in property crime. Of the 2,000,000 home burglaries reported each year in the United States, the highest percentage occurs during June, July, and August.
