I'm such a bad sleeper, earplugs and double glazing make little difference. As for finding a new home, I bought this place last year and spent many months renovating it, so the idea of selling up right now after all that is not top of my list. A lot of my neighbours have lived here since the houses were built in the early 1960s, so surely it can't be all that bad?! Although, I hadn't even considered the thought of the forest lurkers breaking in, so thanks for that...

Or call a realtor and start looking for a new home. If this is seriously a regular occurence like OP's post suggests and not just one man hunt, OP needs to get out. They are just putting themselves in a dangerous situation.

Do you own a gun, OP? If not, I advise you purchase one and learn how to use it right. It only takes a minute for criminals in the woods to be criminals in your house.

This actually happened to me a few days ago. My fault for not checking the area beforehand, but I moved into a nice neighborhood that happens to be in a not so nice area. The search lights kept sweeping through my backyard and the heli flew around for a few hours. Personally the last thing I would do is wear ear plugs. If some asshat breaks down my door to hide from the cops, I wanna hear it so they can hear my .45!

Not to mention the fact that statistically speaking, keeping a gun in the house actually increases your risk of sustaining a gun injury. OP, would you be able to afford to soundproof your room? Unfortunately there's not much else you can do for this kind of situation.

I reckon people there are different. I personally feel better knowing we can have the proper tool to defend our homes and loved ones. When seconds count the police are only minutes away.

Yeah, I'd be scared shitless knowing criminals with nothing to lose were lurking around my house and hiding from police. OP must have steel balls of his only concern is an annoying helicopter.

I say it's time to litter the wooded field with scary masked scarecrows!!!! Problem solved.... now enjoy a good nights rest :)

Helicopters circling doesn't necessarily mean criminals. Is there an RAF Base or something nearby? Still, there isn't much you can do except move or use earplugs. Even if you do move, there's still a chance of having noises like helicopters, planes and traffic, and even foxes barking in the countryside. Earplugs will probably be your best option.
