Car break-ins have been increasingly reported in local Bellevue social media groups. Many residents are looking for answers on how to curb the unsettling trend. No matter the issue, safety should always be the number one concern for anyone that sees a crime in action, or if they even believe they see a potential issue. Always contact the police and avoid confrontation if at all possible.
The West Precinct’s message remains clear – report all burglaries as soon as possible. If you have home surveillance cameras, save the footage and report all attempted break-ins, even if nothing was taken from your property. Filing a police report is a key component in getting more patrol units in our neighborhoods.
To file a police report, call the non-emergency line at (615) 862-8600. You can report criminal activity online, but the online service is NOT monitored 24/7.
