Increasing crime rate?

Two nights ago, we had a break in at our flat in Arnavutkoy, my 16 year old sister was alone and terrorised by a thief who tried to break down her bedroom door to get in the room she was.
He was scared away in time by neighbours but the scar won’t heal easily in her mind.
It seems that break ins are much more frequent as of late. No neighbourhood seems to be spared. The policemen who came to investigate told us that three to four break ins were reported daily in our area. It’s very very scarey.
Advice: Lock all your doors twice and make sure your windows are shut tightly. We live on the fourth floor and the guy managed to climb the wall helped by ropes.

    Geçmiş olsun…

    (Sorry- for those of you who doesn’t know Turkish- but there are things which cannot be said in English, so I had to use Turkish!)
