Here is a good article I recently read. Good distinction between burglary va
invasion.
Home Invasion Robbery
Protect Your Family with a Security Plan
by Chris E McGoey, CPP, CSP, CAM
Home Invasion
One of the more frightening and potentially dangerous crimes that can occur
to a family is a home invasion robbery. A home invasion is when robbers
force their way into an occupied home, apartment or hotel room to commit a
robbery or other crimes. It is particularly frightening because it
violates our private space and the one place that we think of as our
sanctuary.
Home invasion is like the residential form of an automobile carjacking and
it's on the rise. Like the crime of carjacking, most police agencies don’t
track home invasions as a separate crime. Most police agencies and the FBI
will statistically record the crime as a residential burglary or a robbery.
Without the ability to track the specific crime of home invasion, little can
be done to alert the public as to the frequency of occurrence in their
community or devise a law enforcement plan of action to control it.
Criminal Profile
Residential burglars work mostly during the day and when a residence is more
likely to be unoccupied. Most burglars work alone and tend to probe a
neighborhood looking for the right residence and the right opportunity.
Alarm signs and decals, bars on windows, strong locks and doors, big dogs,
and alert neighbors can sometimes deter burglars. Also, burglars will avoid
a confrontation and will usually flee when approached. Most burglaries do
not result in violence unless the criminal is cornered and uses force to
escape.
Home invasion robbers, in contrast, work more often at night and on weekends
when homes are more likely to be occupied. The home invader will sometimes
target the resident as well as the dwelling. The selection process may
include a woman living alone, a wealthy senior citizen or a known drug
dealer, for example. It is not unheard of for a robber to follow you home
based on the value of the car you are driving or the jewelry you are wearing
. Some home invaders might have been in your home before as a delivery
person, installer or repair vendor. Home robbers rarely work alone and
rely on an overwhelming physical confrontation to gain initial control and
instill fear in you. The greatest violence usually occurs during the initial
sixty seconds of the confrontation and home invaders often come prepared
with handcuffs, rope, duct tape, and firearms. Some in-home robbers appear
to enjoy the intimidation, domination, and violence and some even claim it’
s a "rush."
Dangerous Trends
The act of committing a home invasion is escalating much like carjacking.
The reason for the increase seems to follow a similar pattern. Much like
automobiles, the traditional commercial targets for robbers like convenience
stores and fast-food restaurants have hardened themselves against criminal
attack and have reduced available cash. Technology has allowed commercial
establishments to install affordable video surveillance systems, silent
alarms, and other anti-crime deterrent devices. A residence, by
comparison, is now a more attractive choice.
Home invaders know that they won't have to overcome alarm systems when the
home is occupied or be worried about video cameras and silent alarms. Unlike
robbing a retail store, home invaders expect privacy once inside your home
and won’t have to deal with the police suddenly driving up or customers
walking in. Once the offenders take control of a residence they can force
the occupants to open safes, locate hidden valuables, supply keys to the
family car, and PIN numbers to their ATM cards. Home invaders will try to
increase their escape time by disabling the phones and sometimes will leave
their victims bound or incapacitated. It is not unheard of for robbers to
load up the victim’s car with valuables and drive away without anyone in
the neighborhood taking notice.
Method of Operation
The most common point of attack is through the front door or garage.
Sometimes the home invader will simply kick open the door and confront
everyone inside. More common is when the home invaders knock on the door
first or ring the bell. The home invader hopes that the occupant will simply
open the door, without question, in response to their knock. Unfortunately,
many people do just that.
Home invaders will sometimes use a ruse or impersonation to get you to open
the door. They have been known to pretend to be delivering a package,
flowers or lie about an accident like hitting your parked car. Once the door
is opened for them, the home invaders will use an explosive amount of force
and threats to gain control of the home and produce fear in the victims.
Once the occupants are under control the robbers will begin to collect your
valuables.
Some home robbers have been known to spend hours ransacking a residence
while the homeowners are bound nearby watching in terror. Some robbers have
been known to eat meals, watch TV, or even take a nap. A major fear is that
the robbers might commit more violence like sexual assault or even murder.
Some robbers have kidnapped and forced a victim to withdraw cash from their
ATM machine or take them to their small business to rob it as well.
Prevention Steps
The same tactics used to prevent daytime burglaries will go a long way to
preventing forced entry home robberies. If you can delay a home invader at
the point of entry then you have a chance of deterring them or have time to
call the police. A solid core door, strong locks with reinforced strike
plates, and reinforced window devices will stop most forced entries. See my
web page on Home Security Tips for more information. Some homeowners build
safe rooms inside their home to allow them to retreat or escape the violence
while giving them valuable time to call the police.
The weakest home security link is the home occupant who fails to lock doors
or windows or who will open the door without question at the sound of a
knock. The best defense against home invasion is education and planning.
Parents should hold a family meeting to discuss how to answer the door when
someone knocks. Another important topic is how to act should your home or
family be invaded. Once you know how home robbers work, you can effectively
prevent most occurrences. See also Home Invasion Family Survival Tips for
more information.
Remember these important security steps:
Install solid core doors, heavy duty locks, and window security devices
Lock all doors, windows, and garages at all times
Use four three-inch screws to secure heavy duty lock strike plates in the
door frame
Use the door peephole BEFORE opening the door
Use your porch light to help you to see clearly outside
Never rely on a chain-latch as a barrier to partially open the door
Never open the door to strangers or solicitors
Call the police if the stranger acts suspicious
Alert your neighbors to suspicious solicitors
Hold a family meeting to discuss home security plans
Set the home perimeter alarm at night, if you have one
