Have you been a victim of crime in the last 3 months?
Burglary is one of the most common types of crime.
Around half a million burglaries take place in England and Wales each year and although, incidents have thankfully been decreasing in recent years, it remains a serious and very common crime that affects huge numbers of people.
Burglaries can happen in many different ways. You may have been away from home at the time, maybe someone tricked their way into your house, or perhaps you were busy or asleep when they broke in. It’s also worth remembering that burglary isn’t always a one-off event – some people may have been burgled several times or may be suffering other crimes as well, such as harassment or hate crimes.
The repercussions of burglary
How you react to being burgled will vary from person to person. Even if nothing has been stolen, most people are upset just at the thought that a stranger has been in their home. Some people blame themselves if they forgot to secure a window or door, or if they were tricked by the burglar, but only the burglar is at fault. Some people don’t feel secure in their home any more after a burglary.
Children in particular can be very frightened and may need reassurance, even if they don’t talk much about what’s happened. Not all stolen goods are replaceable and some people may lose items of significant sentimental and personal value – this can be seriously distressing.
