H.E.L.P. stands for Have Everything Listed Properly. Simply put, it’s a detailed inventory list of all your personal property items.
The Cross family had one – but they put it in their safe, which the thieves stole – along with four TVs and their dining room table.
Police urge residents to fill out the list, complete with serial numbers, date of purchase, and model numbers, then provide them with a copy.
That way – if and when they turn up missing – police can track missing items faster.
You can find a copy of the inventory list here.
