About Home Invasion

Be prepared

Home robbers spend considerable time planning home invasion robberies and sometimes even rehearse them.

  • Robbers prefer victims about whom they have inside information and, long before the robbery, may monitor them or talk to others who know their routines.
  • Offenders often conduct surveillance before the robbery.
  • Some even meet with victims days before the attack to ensure that drugs and cash will be on hand during the robbery.

If you see someone observing you or a neighbour, you should call Police to report suspicious behaviour.

What to do

If you are at home and suspect you have an intruder, if possible go to the nearest telephone and quietly call the police emergency number Triple Zero (000).

Switch on lights and make a lot of noise moving about but don’t confront the intruder.

If the intruder confronts you, try to stay calm but find a way to alert others especially if you believe the noise might be heard by a neighbour.
