With the holidays upon us, we need to be extra careful about protecting our home and property. Criminals are on the prowl all year-round, but homes filled with Christmas gifts and extra spending money may present an even stronger temptation for crooks to break in and take what is not theirs.
However, a criminal home invasion is about more than stolen property. It often robs its victims of their peace of mind and sense of security in a place that is supposed to be a comfortable haven. This feeling of violation can last a lifetime.
