The last few months the Police Department has taken multiple reports of thefts from vehicles. Missing items have included cash, credit/debit cards and handguns.
Tips to prevent these thefts include:
- Remove valuables from vehicles.
- Lock your vehicle.
- Close/Lock your garage doors.
- Turn on exterior lights.
- Report any suspicious activity in your neighborhood as soon as possible.
In addition, the Police Department encourages residents with outdoor camera/surveillance systems to register those with our Community Camera Program via the City of Washington website: https://washingtoniowa.gov/washington-community-camera-program-registration/
