Got called up this morning at 3am with a window somebody deiced to throw a road cone at. This piss*s me off no end, insurance excess is higher than cost of replacing so money that has to go out that could have been used for better things.

Security cameras don't get a clear shot of the person not that the police seemed to care as they would not even come out just gave me a number.

Its how the building was built with shutters inside , would be cheaper to replace the broken glass twice a year than fit outer rollers.

Going to install higher def camera for that region as it seems to be the only one that gets broken.

sad really but can understand that the Police ca't really do too much without evidence.

Agree its cheaper to replace glass, tougher glass is just more expensive and will still break, if its laminate they won't get in unless they try very hard but still breaks. Toughened glass will still break if attacked in right place and once again too expensive to replace each time.

Better camera's best idea I think.

I work for as Glass company and watched a trial of some reinforced glass suited for prison type applications, two very solid and fit guys, axes, sledgehammers etc couldn't get through after a matter of minutes

This is a few years old now, but I laugh every time I see it. From an attempted burglary in Wellington, 2010 - Empire Skate (I think) when it was down at Chaffers Marina.

rather expensive for a shop, I've seen it as well in secure mental facilities also seen the damage that can be done to them without getting through the glass. Not cost effective but agree with the camera's

It annoys me too, The little sods have been trashing the train shelters around here recently by scratching their inane symbols into the plexiglass bits. Which, I guess, is the teenage equivalent of a dog peeing on a lamppost.

Higher def cameras are the answer. And, if their faces are clearly identifiable and the Police won't so anything then consider having them published in the local newspaper with a reward for identifying them, and then take them to small claims for the costs of repairs.
