How Can We Help You?


Police Department

 

  • Stay alert and aware of what's going on around you.
  • Always lock your car, even if leaving for only a short time.
  • Remove all valuables from your car.
  • If you must leave valuables, conceal them to ensure they are not visible.  If you elect to stow items in your trunk, place them inside prior to arriving at your final destination. 
  • Remember: Bags, backpacks, briefcases, sunglasses, clothing, keys, gym bags, electronics, purses, wallets, and small change are all tempting to a thief.
  • Always park in a well-lit area.
  • Hold purses tight to the body and carry purchases on the same arm to make it more difficult for a robber to
  •  steal.
  • Avoid carrying large amounts of cash.
  • Do not leave firearms in your vehicle!
  • Most thefts occur in one's driveway, so take steps to ensure your vehicle is always locked, your driveway is well-lit and the area surrounding your residence is clear of visual obstructions.
  • Consider a Neighborhood Watch Program in your area.
  • If you have a garage, use it.
  • Do not leave your vehicle unlocked, running, and unattended.
  • If you see anything suspicious, call the Anchorage Police Department immediately at 786-8900 or 911 in an emergency.
  • If you are a victim of theft without suspect information, you can file a report online at www.muni.org/apd.
