Theft and burglary are mostly a shock for people. One one side it is the economic loss but on the other side it incredibly impairs their sense of security.



What you should pay attention to...

  • Inform immediately the police calling 110. If the line is busy, you listen to  a recorded message. Keep calm and stay patient. The police will pick up your call as soon as possible.
  • Please, tell us if you suspect anybody strange of still being inside your apartment/ house.
  • In this case go to a safe place where you can observe your apartment/ house and wait for the police.
  • If possible try to avoid entering your apartment/ house and do not touch anything.
  • The police will start investigations and fill in a report form on the spot as mostly traces and photos of the crime scene have to be secured.  
  • If you have already entered your apartment/ house try to keep in mind the way that you took and which things you have touched.

What we would like to know from you...
