What to Do After a Burglary

Your home may still be robbed despite having an excellent home security setup. Please contact expert locksmith technicians at GreenPro Locksmith to evaluate your entire home security setup and get help on necessary upgrades to protect you and your family members and valuables from burglary and theft. 

Being a victim of burglary can cause emotional drains but when you take necessary steps after a burglary will help in apprehending the burglars and also help you reduce the re-occurrence of such a security problem. The following steps must be taken by you, after a burglary;

Do Not Touch Anything

It is important that you alert the police after a burglary in your home or office. It is equally important to avoid touching or rearranging any item to avoid tampering with evidence of thefts such as fingerprints, that will help in apprehending the criminals. 

Take an Inventory of Everything Stolen

Once you have alerted the police officers on this theft, you need to make a list of every item stolen. Taking a list of stolen items is important to make insurance claims and for the police to track down such items. You may have to download or retrieve all credit, debit card and cash purchase receipts for the items, and if possible old photos of the stolen items. You will need evidence of ownership of such items for your insurance claims and for police investigations.

Contact Your Insurance

It is important to file your insurance claims as soon as you can. You will need a police report, lists of stolen items and proof of ownership of such items, to file your insurance claims.  The insurance company may send adjusters to access the level of damages to your home and valuables. Making sure that your receipts and photos of stolen items are available, will ensure that the insurance company doesn’t reduce the compensation that you deserve. 

Protect Yourself Online 

If the burglars accessed your personal computer during a burglary, or your credit cards were stolen, then you need to ensure that you change all passwords including the ones for your computer, social media profiles and emails.  It is important that you contact your bank and credit card issuer to suspend all access to your cards and bank account numbers. 

Get a Professional Locksmith Technician to Inspect the Break-in
