Car Prowls / Vandalism on the rise


The rise in car prowls and vandalism throughout the area is also affecting Beaux Arts Village.  To protect yourself and your valuables, please remember to:

  • Remove all valuables from your car.  You may even want to remove garage-door openers.
  • Lock your car wherever you go, even when its parked in your dirveway or unlocked garage.
  • Confirm that your automobile registration papers DO NOT show your home address.  Dept of Licensing is now issuing such papers with just the owner's name, but if you address is still listed, make a copy of the paperwork with your address blocked out.
  • If you see something that seems strange, report it to the King County sheriff -- the soon the better.  If they receive several reports of similar activity, they are more likely to check it out quickly.
  • You can also send a note to the Town Marshal using the Contact Us page, but please remember that the Town Marshal does not have enforcement authority.
