"Burglary causes substantial financial loss and often serious psychological harm to the victims. This problem-oriented guide for police focuses on burglary of single-family houses, primarily owner-occupied and detached. It begins by describing the problem and reviewing risk factors and identifies a series of questions to help law enforcement analyze their local problem. Finally, it reviews responses to the problem of burglary of single-family houses and what is known about them from evaluative research and police practice."
