16% of MA Homeowners Wouldn’t Report a Minor Crime at Property to Police, Says Study

Thursday, November 09, 2017

 

16% of Massachusetts homeowners would not report a minor crime at their property to the police, according to a new study conducted by Security Baron.

‘The figures to come out of our survey are concerning. You’d think that homeowners would be very security conscious, and want to protect their homes, but not, it would seem, at the expense of losing money on a sale down the line,” said Joe Auer of Security Baron.

The survey was based on 2,500 people aged 18-65+.

U.S. Data

Across the country, the survey suggests that more than 19% of U.S. homeowners would consider not reporting crime to the police because it could make it more difficult to sell or rent their property, or reduce its value.

The survey also found that over two thirds (67%) of Americans would look into local crime statistics when searching for a new home to buy or rent.

The survey reveals other data such as 72% of Americans would not rent or buy a property in which a violent crime had taken place, and 77% would be put off the purchase if a home had security bars on the windows.

According to FBI data, of the property crimes that were reported to the police in 2015, nearly one fifth (19.4%) were cleared – another reason for people not to report crimes.
