Spatial and Temporal Patterns of Repeat Domestic Burglary Victimisation and Offending in North Sheffield 1995-2000

Andrew Costello, University of Sheffield
Anthony E. Bottoms, Cambridge University

This paper examines recorded domestic burglary patterns in North Sheffield over a 72-month period (1/1/95-12/31/00), particularly with regard to patterns of repeat victimisation. Of particular importance is the finding that the risk of re-victimisation lasts for a considerable period after victimisation (years) and that the vast majority of re-victimisations occur over 12 months after the first event.
