[ARCHIVED] - Lock It or Lose It: Keep Yourself and Your Valuables Safe -

Remember to Lock It or Lose It to keep your home and vehicle secure.

In the past two weeks, Issaquah police received several reports of vehicle prowls — a majority caused by people leaving valuables in their unlocked vehicles.

Police remind 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 yourself and your valuable safe:

  • 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.
