The possibility of theft and vandalism can be a terribly frightening and emotional experience for property owners. Even with the best in security systems, there is still a chance for an intruder to get in. If you find that your property has been stolen or vandalized, contact the local authorities immediately, because the police reports filed at the time of the incident support the majority of the theft and vandalism insurance claims that are filed.

Should you find yourself the victim of theft or vandalism, a property insurance claim can help you significantly recover the damages sustained. Immediately following the discovery of theft or vandalism to your property, you should do the following:

  • Contact local authorities and file police report
  • Inform your insurance company
  • Make a detailed list of everything stolen or vandalized
  • Take photos and video of the crime scene
  • Preserve the evidence and do not immediately clean up damage
