Crime Prevention Tips

Tigard Police Department Wants You To Know...
The City of Tigard is not unique when it comes to crimes of opportunity. Tigard, like most cities in the Portland metro area, has seen a dramatic increase in thefts from vehicles. Last year, nearly 385 incidents were reported.

Fortunately, there are ways to reduce the likelihood of your vehicle becoming victimized. Remember to always lock all windows, doors and sunroofs. See that all valuables are removed from your vehicle. Do not leave articles such as currency or change, sports equipment, electronics, computers or sunglasses in plain sight. Criminals have admitted to law enforcement agencies that vehicles with articles in sight were more often chosen over vehicles which had no property visible.

Remove the "detachable" face of your audio system if it has that option, as expensive audio systems attract thieves. You may need to take additional precautions if you own one. Do not leave CDs in plain sight.

More Crime Prevention Tips:

  • Remember to park in well-lit areas. You may want to consider using some type of anti-theft device.
  • Take extra caution when leaving work — especially during darkness. If possible, try to leave work with another person.
  • Two people walking and traveling together reduce the likelihood of crime by 50%.
  • When approaching your vehicle, be sure to quickly scan the area to be certain no one is loitering around your vehicle.
  • If you observe someone near your vehicle, stop, get to a safe location and notify the police.
  • The non-emergency telephone number for the Tigard Police is 503-629-0111.
