The details of the law vary from country to country, but typically include the elements of entering a building as a trespasser and the intent to commit certain kinds of crime therein.

The most common types of offenses mentioned are theft, damage, arson, assault, and rape. The main variations in law concern the type of building deemed to be residential e. In most countries, burglary is treated as a serious offense and the culprits can receive substantial prison sentences. In some countries, such as the United States, residential burglars can, under certain circumstances, receive a life sentence.

Residential burglary as a topic has been studied by lawyers, sociologists, criminologists, geographers, and psychologists, to name but a few. The main research interests are the motives of burglars, what is stolen or damaged, the methods of selecting targets, the location of the offense, the impact of burglaries on victims, and what can be done to prevent the offense.

The study of residential burglary has contributed substantially to the broader study of crime mapping, crime hot-spot analysis, repeat victimization, offender decision making, and deterrence theory and research. General Overviews The main body of publications on residential burglary emerged in two batches.

This early period also saw the publication of research by Cromwell, et al. The second batch of studies emerged during the later s and early s. These tended to be more specialist in orientation and covered selected aspects of the offense, such as offender mobility patterns, target selection, and the geography of the crime, as well as features of the offense of the kinds discussed in the sections below.

This second phase also included the work by Rengert and Wasilichick on burglary in suburban areas. The most recent overviews of research on residential burglary can be found in Bernasco and Maguire, et al.

Choice theory is the belief that committing a crime is a rational decision, based on cost benefit analysis. The would-be offender will weigh the costs of committing a particular crime: fines, jail time, and imprisonment versus the benefits: money, status, heightened adrenaline. They wanted the crime to fit the punishment which would deter other criminals from committing that same crime. The classical school of criminology mainly refers to the eighteenth century work by two prominent philosophers, Cesare Beccaria and Jeremy Bentham. First, it may work better or worse for different types of crime, yet it is thought that there are rational choices in every type of crime even impulsive and pathologic crimes.
