Harden your home against burglary with help from the Center for Problem-Oriented Policing

Center for Problem-Oriented PolicingDeborah Lamm Weisel, assistant professor at the Department of Political Science and Public Administration at North Carolina State University analyzes the problem of home burglary for the Center for Problem-Oriented Policing.  She reviews the characteristics of burglars themselves, who are usually males under the age of 25. She notes that these youths often break into houses in their own neighborhoods and do so repeatedly. Houses that have been broken into may well be struck again, often within six weeks. Also, houses near burglarized homes “face an increased risk of burglary after the neighbor is burglarized.”
