A sheriff's deputy responded to a call by me while I was in route to the hospital and confronted suspect who reportedly told them a fictional name they did not ask for any form of identification and a sheriff's deputy was concerned that the false name given was his mother so everything was left unsecured in the house was ransacked and burglarized 13 days later when I got out of they had a fictional report and had not followed up on the name that the person they confronted that was suspect had given them wallet all car keys credit cards to semi-automatic weapons among other things stolen from my house that that Sumner County Sheriff's Department I left insecure had no contact with me while in the hospital even when someone called me and told me there was activity at my house and I called them again and they went out and confronted more unknown people in my house and again did not do nothing when I returned home found a house ransacked and burglarized I called the police department and TOLD them who was here last... then they realized that they had blundered at my expense a shoddy police investigation because one police officer heard a name he thought was his mother on the radio..
As a practical matter--not much. You can speak to the Sheriff. Unfortunately, you have no fundamental right to brisk and flawless investigation. Make sure your insurer knows of the break in.
