How does any of this deter burglaries?
The term “marked” means property has been tagged in some way and the serial numbers registered. Labels and window clings are a warning that let burglars know that your property is a bad target. Burglars know that being caught with marked property is like being caught with marked money. It’s strong evidence against them, and burglary middlemen (fences) don’t like to handle marked items either.
What's the difference between theft, burglary and robbery?
Theft is the unauthorized taking of property when there is nobody present as a witness.
Burglary is the unlawful entry into a domicile for the purposes of theft when no one is thought to be there. 250,000 burglaries turn violent each year because someone is home or walks in on the crime.
Robbery involves violent threats and physical force against individuals and groups who are present at the time of a crime.
How often do burglaries occur?
There are about 8 million burglaries per year in the United States. Burglaries are by far the most common crime in shear numbers. They are also more traumatizing than most people understand. Just ask a victim. Also, there is more than just the burglary. Doors, locks and windows may be damaged and your property trashed. Lastly it is thought that only half of burglaries ever get reported, so double the reported numbers.
Because citizens don’t record serial numbers or mark property, only around 10% of burglaries are ever solved. Because a car’s VIN is always recorded and the vehicle tagged and titled, 60% are recovered.
Sadly, upwards of 250,000 burglaries per year turn violent

If I live up high in an apartment or dorm room, is there a point to applying window cling warning signs?
Yes. Burglars case a property before breaking in. If the burglar is on the ground floor or in another apartment or dorm room, seeing the window cling label will act as a deterrent.

Why do I need to register my property if I have homeowners insurance?
