Police Enter Unlocked Homes In Bizarre Program to Show How Easy it is for Criminals to Break in and Tweet About It
If the building was unsecured when police attempted to enter the premises, they would continue on in and actually entered the homes of at least 6 people to insure that a robbery was not in progress or already occurred.
If families were home law enforcement would kindly remind them to lock up and teach them a valuable lesson.
On finding open door, we shout for occupants, before entering to find someone to lock the door & make sure burglary has taken place already

In the United States, police have just started dabble with the victim blaming thought process. We saw last year Illinois police enter unlocked vehicles to remind people to lock up to prevent vehicle theft and even in one instance, New Hampshire police intended to grabbed belongings and bring them back to the station to teach locals a lesson.
It is foreseeable that similar door to door programs could pop up in America in states like California or Illinois.
