Priority five

Reducing the Risk of Becoming a Victim of Domestic Burglary

Why this is a priority

Domestic Burglary has seen an increase, with rates towards the end of 2015 recording above those of peer Community Safety Partnership (CSPs). Because of its intrusive nature, it can leave families feeling distressed, vulnerable, and unable to feel safe within their own homes. Rotherham's position in relation to its peers may also impact on people's decision to purchase property and future investment in Rotherham.
