What happens when you have reported the theft?

The police do not normally show up when you report theft. Instead, we will consider the possibilities of collecting traces, recordings from tv surveillance, and other evidence as well as questioning you and any witnesses.


We will also advice you on what you can do yourself to secure evidence etc.

Once you have reported the theft to the police, you will receive a receipt with a case number by email.


You can use the receipt as documentation for your insurance company. Please note that you also have to report the theft to your insurance company.

If a perpetrator is charged, you will be notified. You will be summoned to the hearing if you are to testify or seek compensation.


If you wish, you can attend the trial, even if you are not testifying.

If the stolen items are found, you will be contacted so that they can be returned to you.


If you have already received compensation from your insurance company, the items will be handed over to your insurance company.

If you have made a claim in the case or need to give evidence in court, you will be summoned to the hearing.
If the police stop the investigation, for example because it is not possible to find a perpetrator, you will be notified.
