EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - In an effort to reduce burglaries and educate the residents of East Brunswick, the East Brunswick Police Department has released a "Street Smart" Newsletter along with a Burglary Prevention Guide.

Every year there are over five million home burglaries in the United States which account for 21% of property crimes. On average, one burglary results in a financial loss of $1,725. The EBPD advises that residents can greatly reduce the risk of being burglarized by taking simple steps to make a home more difficult to enter and less enticing to potential burglars.
