The number of home burglaries during the winter months has fallen by 50% in the last 4 years.
Gardaí say it's as a result of the Winter Phase of Operation Thor, which has just been launched for its fifth year.
Statistics show home burglaries at a national level fell from more than 12,000 from the start of October to the end of March 2014/15 to just under 6,000 last winter.
Gardai say this is a direct result of its implementation of the Winter Phase of Operation Thor.
The campaign targets organized crime gangs and repeat offenders through coordinated crime prevention and enforcement activity.
Gardai say homes that look unoccupied are more vulnerable to being robbed, while most likely entry point for a burglar is a door
1 in 5 burglars gets into a home through an unsecured door or window, with the majority looking for cash and jewelry.
Gardai will focus their attention over the coming months on crime investigations and prevention, supporting victims, and creating awareness of the issue.
