Vehicle Safety

Vehicle theft and car prowling are both crimes of opportunity. There are steps you can take to be proactive in keeping your vehicle safe from being prowled or stolen.

  • Consider installing a vehicle alarm system or another theft deterrent device. The Seattle Neighborhood Group in partnership with the Seattle Police Department offer The Club® to Seattle Residents at a reduced cost. For more information contact the Campus Crime Prevention Officer at
  • Park your vehicle in well-lighted designated parking areas.
  • Make sure that all windows and doors are secured before you leave your vehicle.
  • Don't leave GPS units, portable electronics or valuables visible in the vehicle. Either place items in trunk or take them with you.
  • If you observe suspicious behavior (e.g. person looking into parked vehicles, loitering in or around parking lots and /or vehicles parked on the street) contact Campus Public Safety at 206.296.5911.
