[ARCHIVED] Lock It or Lose It: Keep Yourself Safe This Summer

As temperatures rise, Lock It or Lose It to keep your home and vehicle secure.

To reduce thefts this summer, the Issaquah Police Department is reminding residents that if you don’t lock your home or vehicle, you’re making it a potential target.

A few simple steps can help keep you safe all summer and beyond:

  • Keep doors and windows locked when you’re asleep or away from your home. Remember: Screens do not secure windows; only locking secures windows.
  • Always lock unattended vehicles.
  • Do not leave valuables in an unattended vehicle.
  • If that’s not possible, lock the materials in the trunk of the car, or place them out of clear view.
Report suspicious activity to police by calling our non-emergency line, 425-837-3200.
