Coming home to find your house has been broken into and your valuables gone can be heart-breaking, especially if you have lost irreplaceable items like family heirlooms. In all the upset, it can be difficult to know what to do first.
If you believe the suspect is still on the property or the crime happened within the last 15 minutes, call 9-1-1 immediately. If the suspect is gone, and it’s been more than 15 minutes since the break-in happened, please call our non-emergency line at (604) 717-3321.
Nothing can prepare you emotionally for this experience, but we hope this short video about what to expect once you have made a police report will make the process less difficult.
