Research suggests lasting horror after property crime

VICTIMS of property crime may not feel safe in their own homes again until up to two years after the crime, new research has suggested.

The Australia Institute research found the emotional effects of property crime were still evident in victims' years after the crime was committed.

It also reported that women were better able to cope with property crime than men, as they were more likely to share their experiences with a "support group".
