Burglaries and break-ins are less common now than they were six or seven years ago, but they do still happen, and as emotions run high it can be difficult to think rationally about the best course of action. If you discover or suspect that a burglary has taken place on your property, there are a few things you should do:
If you aren’t already inside the property, it is advisable to remain outside the property to avoid contaminating any evidence that could be used to catch the perpetrator.
Call the police and your insurance company
Notifying the police that a burglary has taken place is essential. Police will come to the scene and document a description of what has been taken from the property; they will also be able to recover any evidence from the scene that could help in finding the burglar.
Once you have contacted the police, you should also contact your insurance company. In some cases, an insurance company might decide to send an independent claims evaluator to the scene to assess the grounds for your claim.
Review CCTV footage (if possible)
If you have security cameras on your property, you should try to recover any footage that might provide information about the burglar’s appearance, how they got in, the time of the burglary, etc.
How can I prevent future break-ins?
Here at IDS Security, we offer a range of security systems that are appropriate for the home or workplace, including:
