Risk of burglary
Overall, around 2% of households had experienced a burglary in the last year. Households with no security measures were around ten times more likely to have been victims than households with simple security measures such as deadlocks on doors and window locks.

Recorded burglary
Recorded domestic burglary rates are generally evenly spread across England and Wales but there are also areas with a high concentration of offences.
 
 
Landlord jailed fire safety offences
First one. A landlord has achieved notoriety for being the first person to be sent to jail for failing to comply with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (FSO). Mehmat Parlak (P) received a four-month custodial sentence after pleading guilty to eight FSO offences. In addition, his company was fined £21,000.

Fatal incident. The London Fire Brigade (LFB) took the decision to prosecute P following a fatal fire at one of his properties. The LFB investigated and found that P had not addressed his duties under the FSO, which ultimately led to the death of an individual.

 

  Summary of the breaches. In this case, the list of what had been done was far shorter than what hadn’t. The investigating officers found that neither P nor his company had completed a fire risk assessment. No appropriate fire safety arrangements were in place; no smoke detection devices were fitted, nor were there any emergency signs. And routes that may have been used to escape from a fire were blocked.

Extreme case . Although sending individuals to prison is not something that happens very often, this case proves that if the investigating inspector feels that the breaches are severe enough to put lives at risk, they will push for tough penalties to be imposed.
