One of the scariest things is to believe there is someone in your home. Should you come home to an open home, do not enter the house! You should go to a neighbor's home, or if a cellular phone is available, get in your car and leave to a safe area. Call the police dispatcher on 911 and report your home is unsecured. The dispatcher will send officers to your home to be sure there is no one inside. You may see the officers draw their weapons before entering, this a normal practice when checking or "clearing" a house or building. Once there has been a determination there is no one in the home, you may accompany the officers inside to see if anything has been taken or disturbed.
