This report describes the ACT Burglary Victims Response Project 2004, a project designed to reduce repeat victimisation of residential burglary victims in the A.C.T. In the early phases of the project, it was proposed that burglary victims in A.C.T. suburbs that experienced higher rates of burglary would be invited to avail themselves of a free home security assessment. For a variety of reasons few victims chose to use this service, and the report presents findings from a subsequent survey of burglary victims which indicate that burglary victims exhibit resilience in response to the burglary experience, and are largely proactive, practical and competent crime prevention actors.
