We did not see widespread looting and home invasions during the great depression which lasted several years. We should be fine for a few months.

Most crimes are crimes of passion and not planned out crimes to obtain resources. Crime goes down in the winter every year because more people are home during the winter and say out of trouble. I would predict a drop in crime because everyone is stuck at home.

Our police systems and social safety nets are still running. People are collecting unemployment and aren't starving. No reason for looting yet.
