Helping Those Who Have Been a Victim of a Break and Enter

Break & Enter a Crime

Break and enters happen everywhere, regardless of age, gender, economic class, or culture.  In most cases, break-ins are committed to steal something of value.  Theft or destruction of property is a serious crime, regardless of its value.

Breaking and entering a home occurs when someone breaks into the home without permission and commits a crime, or plans to commit a crime. Break-ins often involve the theft of valuable items. Illegal entry is a serious crime regardless of whether it involves small or inexpensive property. 

There are emotional as well as financial consequences to crime. Residential burglaries can occur anywhere, regardless of age, gender, economic background, or culture. The majority of criminals do not know their victims or do not target them personally. The victims and their families face emotional repercussions due to residential break-ins, despite the varied reactions to these crimes. The feeling of insecurity victims experience following break-ins can become overwhelming.

An individual may feel a profound sense of loss and loss of privacy upon discovering that sentimental items have been damaged or stolen. A victim of a break-in may receive emotional and practical support. Recovery requires taking back control of one’s life. Residents who are victims of residential break-ins can get assistance.
