Ok, Number 1 common thing across the Region is Burglar Bars!!!

Almost every house has it.

You wouldn't stay in a house without any.

That suggests burglary and break-ins are commonplace, but is that true???

Yet, folks seldom see burglars plying their trade

Who are these burglars??? Do they have friends who know what they do?

How do they learn and develop their skills?

Do you have a paadna who is a burglar?

How many burglars are there?

Most careers celebrate success and excellence. Practitioners want to be recognized. Burglars?

Damn. That's pretty sad actually, but probably more than apt.

Why isn't there public outcry about burglaries? No police announcement or political will?

I see burglar bars in other countries outside the region; when people live in street level apartments, particularly in older cities, though they tend to be more decorative.

So, they're decorative then?
But what % of regional homes have these bars? Plenty.

What's easier, start a war against burglars or spend money on steel bars?

Or are these bars result of misplaced paranoia?

Notwithstanding that I haven’t been to every island / territory in the region or at least recently I don’t share this view.

I don’t see extensive use of burglar bars in Bim. Not where Powen lives.

Many years ago maybe but not now. Perhaps security on windows has improved

Not all homes have it in T&T either...many have standard windows and doors with no bars..and short front walls and front gates etc..there are also many areas where people still leave their front doors open all day also..and I don't mean rich people areas only...
