Tracing network procedure for stolen computers

Quick security tracing question, flame me if you think offnetwork topic.
Earlier this month my daughters Ibook was stolen, oh well that is life I
Anyway updated mail server software for full debug and IP log since noticed
that mail account was accessed yesterday.
I am now hoping it is access'd again, system was setup to pull each min so
when they(thugs) access internet again hopefully will honeytrap IP number.
What does one do next ? I guess inform police etc but would this be too slow
?? Do I contact ARIN/RIPE contacts direct ??
I know about software that should have been installed for tracing if stolen
but wondered about in the real network world how useful this was and if any
items recovered ??
