[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.
