[ARCHIVED] Waukee Police Encourage Residents to Lock Up Belongings

Waukee Police are encouraging residents to lock up property, especially at night. The department often receives calls of theft incidents involving unlocked homes and vehicles. The PD recommends designating a time each night to consistently ensure the following checklist items are done. Often, the department has referred to it as the #9PMRoutine, however, residents can certainly choose a different time. Each night, be sure to:

  • Lock the doors on your home.
  • Park vehicles in the garage, if able.
  • Close garage door(s); lock any entrance doors to garage.
  • If parking vehicles outside, lock vehicle doors.
  • Do not leave valuables in plain sight in vehicles.
  • Activate alarms, if applicable.
  • Close blinds and/or curtains.
  • Leave porch lights on.

And, regardless of time of day, always lock vehicles and place any valuables such as handbags or electronics in trunks or out of sight elsewhere.
