Better To Be Safe Than Sorry

Several Bunbury suburbs have unfortunately made the RAC list of regional towns with the highest number of home burglary insurance claims in 2016.

RAC Manager Home Claims, Glen Walker, said according to RAC insurance claims data for the year, several patterns continue to emerge from regular burglary hotspots .

“We tend to see the same areas dominate our claims data, with Northam, Boulder and Kalgoorlie consistently ranking highly in RAC’s burglary claims analysis,” Mr Walker said.

“Northam was the worst performing town, however Bunbury and Kalgoorlie didn’t do much better, with Carey Park and Australind ranking equal fourth and Boulder and Kalgoorlie ranking second and third. 

 “Our advice is to always lock your doors and windows and maintain your security standards even when you are home.”
