DON'T BE A VICTIM

KEEP YOUR VALUABLES SAFE:

In 2013 the La Grande Police Department took close to 85 reports of thefts from vehicles with property stolen totaling more than $43,000.

Very few of these reports indicated that a vehicle was locked at the time.  Some individuals did lock their vehicles however left their windows partially down giving thieves a means to gain entry.

As the warmer weather approaches be mindful of locking your vehicles, rolling up windows and keep your valuables out of sight.   

Call the La Grande Police Department if you observe suspicious activity especially at night since a majority of the thefts occurs during this time.

Citizen involvement is important in order to help reduce crime.

After hours non-emergency dispatch number is 541-963-1017.
