VS responds to research on unresolved burglaries

28 January 2016

Victim Support responds to the Daily Express on research by Churchill into unresolved burglaries.

Lucy Hastings, director at independent charity Victim Support, said:

“Burglary not only robs victims of their physical possessions, it can also rob people of their sense of security at home – a place where they should feel most safe – which can be extremely hard to rebuild. This crime can leave many people feeling vulnerable, frightened and distressed.

“It is important that all victims know that reporting an incident of burglary will be taken seriously by the police, the offence will be robustly investigated without delay and that they will be kept informed about the investigation.”
