The Effects of The Hazard

·         Burglary defined:  The crime of entering a building as a trespasser to commit theft.  (David Waugh)

PHYSICAL EFFECTS & PSYCHOLOGICAL EFFECTS:

·         Loss of possessions. Fear of being in property    
·         Damage to property  Paranoia, fear of repeat burglaries
·         Higher insurance/ refusal to   Insecurity, depression—loss of work!
·         Cost of installing deterrents to prevent further break-ins.

Sources demonstrating the frequency of the hazard and reliability of these sources

Places to find Evidence:

Police Reports Statistics compiled for individual , local and national crime
Insurance Data Used to assess risk/set insurance premiums.
Government Reports Used to zero political aims onto particular types of crime and to target particular areas.
 Newspapers increase public awareness, but must be careful of bias and superficial conclusions

Description of responses that have been made in order to prevent the hazard and or manage the hazard

Targeting of areas by Police forces:  This is a deterrent at local level that is currently the most effective measure of prevention.

Also: Modification of properties for defence
·         Burglar alarms
·         CCTV systems
·         Enforced doors and windows

Individuals with the aid of private security companies take these measures.
·         Community policing—neighbourhood watches
·         Video cameras and increased visible police presence in troubled areas
·         Community awareness and education
·          Victim support for burglary/prevents vigilantly attitudes

How successful these responses are based upon the perception and understanding of the hazard

There has been some success but crime is a perpetuating social disease which is at the route of human nature:
·         BUT: 
·         Crime profiles identify criminal types and methods or interception and rehabilitation also challenge route o crime e.g. poverty and deprivation.
·         Identification of areas of greatest risk, both individual areas but also property types
·         Resources can be given to the organisations which need it e.g. victim support, police initiatives
·         Response by house owners of improved or better security.  Crime adapts by moving areas though.
