What To Do After A Vehicle Break-In

Driving Tips
Jason Baxter

A vehicle break-in is a scary experience. Your car can be damaged, your personal security compromised, and you may have items stolen. Unfortunately, car thieves know exactly how to break into a vehicle with little trace. Sometimes, you may not even know when a break-in has occurred. But, it is important to know what to do after the fact.

Here are a few things you should do immediately after recognizing a vehicle break-in.

Examine The Vehicle

When you first notice your car has been broken into, you may notice minor to severe damage. There may be a broken window or door, or the thief may have used an alternate key to get inside. It is important to examine your vehicle for damage before entering. You do not want to injure yourself if there is broken glass or evidence around your car.

Check For Missing Items

Once you have cleared the area and know you are safe, check your vehicle for missing items. It is wise to try and determine what a thief may have been looking for. Check for your vehicle registration and insurance, your wallet, and any other belongings you keep in your car. If you notice missing items, be sure to write them down so you do not forget.

Check Any Cameras For Footage

If you have home security or dash cameras, check them and get the footage for the police. But, if you don’t have cameras, check for local streetlight cameras or ask your neighbours if they have any that could have recorded some footage. If your car was broken into in a public area, ask surrounding businesses if they have cameras that caught the incident. The more evidence you have for the police, the better.

File A Report

Whether you call or visit a local police station, be sure to file a police report that same day. Inform the police of exactly what happened so the report is as thorough as possible. Be sure to have all your vehicle and personal information before contacting the police.
