Car Prowl Increase and Prevention Strategies

Posted: 27 Oct 2020 By: Jennifer Danner

Passed to us from the Southwest Precinct

The SW Precinct has recently seen an increase in car prowl incidents in our William 2 (W2) patrol beat area, specifically on and around Beach Drive SW. These incidents are mostly occurring in the night time hours.

Here is the link to our Patrol Beat/Sector map- https://www.seattle.gov/Documents/Departments/police/Precincts/maps/Southwest_Precinct.pdf

In order to address this increase, we would like to remind our community about the following car prowl prevention strategies:

• Check vehicle regularly (especially important during COVID times)

• Never leave valuables in plain view

• Hide chargers and accessories that indicate an electronic device may be in the vehicle

• Remove garage door openers, key cards and other keys from the vehicle

• If possible, park vehicle in a busy, locked, monitored and/or well-lit area

• Install anti-theft devices

• If possible, activate alarm
