Fences, in general, provide an extra layer of security around a home by requiring would-be criminals to exert more effort to mount an attack than would be necessary against a home without a fence.
Most fencing solutions are not designed to be impenetrable. All a bad guy has to do to get past most fences is to simply climb over it, which is not beyond the skill-set of a common crook. If the compromised fence is a privacy fence, the crook will also have the benefit of the fence hiding the actual break-in from the view of neighbors.
A fence surrounding the property of a residence is a good idea. However, if a privacy fence is installed, it can be counter-productive and facilitate an attack on your home.
