Hey there, my name is Charlie Marshell. I would like to use this site to encourage everyone to have a fireproof safe installed in their homes. Fireproof safes keep documents, valuables and weapons from suffering damage during an emergency situation. Furthermore, you can keep these items out of the wrong hands during a robbery attempt. There is a wide range of safes on the market today. The way you approach the placement and installation process also has an impact on their effectiveness. I would like to share information about this subject in more detail on my website. I hope you visit again soon.
Arriving at your home (or car, or office) to find that the locks have been tampered with can be an eerie experience. The next steps to take will be to get your personal security and your belongings secured as soon as possible. Here are some things to do next.
See If Anything Is Missing, Broken, or Out of Place
If you notice that something is gone and the attempt to break into your personal property was successful, you will need to file a police report. That means taking the time to document anything that is missing and any evidence that was left behind. Even something that's out of place can be a clue as to why someone was in your property and what they were after.
Think About Suspects
You may think you know exactly who tampered with your locks and tried to get into your property. Think of anyone who might have a reason to be angry with you and want to cause you or your property physical harm. These people should be reported in the police report you write. If there is a malicious intent behind such a break-in attempt, also make sure that you stay in a secure place with other people until the cause of the attempted break-in can be found.
Sometimes, these things can be random. Intruders may try to mess with your property for any number of reasons. With cars, they might have tried to steal the car or steal a battery, radio, or other valuable part. If it's a home, the burglar might have seen signs that no one had been home for awhile. Or, they might have seen a potentially easy entryway to your home. With office spaces, perhaps the burglar is someone who has already been in your business and saw something valuable while they were visiting.
Review Your Security
Aside from creating police or insurance reports and protecting your personal well being, the other best thing you can do is look at why someone tried to tamper with your locks and how you can make them better. A commercial locksmith or home locksmith will give you tips to follow for upgrading locks. Your lock may have been damaged in a brute force attack or an attack that used a tool to try and pick the lock. Your locksmith will evaluate these locks and give you estimates for installing stronger locking options or potentially upgrading to electronic locks.
