This paper discusses research and theory on the psychology of domestic burglary. Burglary is one of the most common offences in the U.K. and has a great financial and psychological effect on the populace. First, we examine research exploring the choices made during the burglary of a domestic property. Second, we discuss research investigating the actions performed within a house during a domestic burglary. The implications of this research are highlighted throughout. Finally, we discuss how to move forward and tackle the resurgence in burglary offence rates by focusing on rehabilitation, not just prevention.
