In the event you are a victim of a burglary or theft
If this is an emergency, dial 9-1-1.
In a non emergency, call your local law enforcement agency directly.
One way to help the police is to simply file a report. It is thought that upwards of half of all burglaries go unreported. Think of burglaries as being a gateway crime that can lead to something more serious. In today’s law enforcement environment, reported crimes are fed into databases that examine trends and patterns. By aiding the police, you may be assisting in solving a string of crimes.
Have a copy of your My Property ID Registry inventory sheet available. Be prepared to also email your inventory sheet to law enforcement.
Being burglarized is no fun and you are likely a bit rattled. Calling the police is more than just filling in a report. Law enforcement also assesses the damage and gives advice on next steps. Maybe your keys are gone or a door can’t be secured. Law enforcement is there to settle the situation and make suggestions.
