    Q174: I have been burgled. Will you come and fingerprint my house and if so can I tidy up?

    Scenes of crimes officers will attend after police officers have taken the initial report to examine your house. It is important that you do not touch anywhere where you believe the suspect has touched. We appreciate that being burgled is a very upsetting experience and that you may want to tidy up as soon as possible.  It is vital however that we get all the evidence from the scene so we ask that you leave any areas where the suspect may have been alone until the scenes of crime officer has attended.
