Contact With Offenders

  • In 25% of all burglaries someone was at home but unaware of what was happening, while in a further 26% someone was at home and aware.

  • 18% of incidents occurred while the respondent was at work or travelling to work; 20% while they were engaged in leisure activities or shopping and 8% while they were on holiday.

Offenders used violence in about a tenth of all burglaries (9%). Analysis of the 1998 and 1996 sweeps of the BCS indicates that in many incidents involving violence the offender had some prior relationship with the victim.
