Posted on : Oct. 27, 2018 Updated on : Oct. 27, 2018 in: Tips, Website .

Personal Property Inventory

Posted on : Oct. 27, 2018 Updated on : Oct. 27, 2018 in: Community, Website .

Every year the Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office investigates hundreds of Burglaries and Thefts. Only a small percentage of the stolen property is recovered and returned to the owner. One of the main reasons property isn’t returned is the lack of documentation. Property is recovered, but there is no way to match it with the owner. The unclaimed property goes into evidence, and eventually to auction.

When an item is stolen the information goes into a police report. Generally the more specific details about the item, the more likely it will be recovered and returned to the rightful owner ...

Protecting Your Home

Posted on : April 12, 2017 Updated on : April 12, 2017 in: Tips, Website .

Tips to help make your home more secure, and a bit about what the burglars don't like.

Most burglars are amateur criminals and that is why they look for easy targets. To most burglars, it is how easy it is to break in, not what is inside, that determines which building they rob. Once burglars realize homes are being locked and watched, they will move on to easier targets.

The first step in making your residence into a hard target for a breakin is making it look (and sound) occupied. Leave drapes and shades in the same position when ...
