Home Safety Tips with Sammamish Police

It's important to feel safe in your home and community. If you suspect suspicious activity or you have been the victim of a crime, please call 9-1-1 first. View Sammamish Police Chief, Dan Pingrey, speak about public safety: Town Hall with Sammamish Police.

We encourage all residents to take steps to help prevent a crime:

✔️ Make your home look occupied by leaving a light on
✔️ Keep your garage door closed and locked
✔️ Consider installing a security camera and alarm system
✔️If you sell anything online, turn off geo-tagging on your cell phone camera. This will help prevent a criminal with a free geo-tag reader from coming to your home.
✔️ Don't allow daily deliveries of mail or newspapers to build up while you are away. Arrange with the Post Office to hold your mail or have a friend or neighbor pick it up regularly
✔️ Don't share your vacation plans on social media
✔️ Don’t leave valuables in your vehicles
✔️ Make sure to lock your vehicle
✔️ Don’t leave your vehicle idling unoccupied
