That’s a four-year average rate decline of 26.94% per year.

It’s the second largest average annual decrease in reported burglaries in the study, after Folkestone and Hythe (27.52%).

East Dunbartonshire was followed by four other Scottish regions to round out the top five – Highland (0.47 burglaries per 1,000 people), Aberdeenshire (0.50), Stirling (0.56) and Argyll and Bute (0.58).

Jessica Willock, home insurance expert at Confused.com, said: “Although burglary rates seem to be falling every year, making sure your home is safe is still just as important.

“Security cameras and burglar alarms are not only a great deterrent to potential thieves, but they could also lower your home insurance prices if you have them.

“Our guide to protecting your home from burglars outlines some of the most effective ways to protect your home.

“This includes some simple changes, like investing in smart home security.

“Nowadays, technology has advanced to give us cheap, easy-to-install smart home devices like doorbells and automatic lights.

“It lets you know who’s outside without having to go near the door.”
