Yes. The department will conduct periodic security checks of a vacant home at the request of the owner or resident. To make a request please fill out the residential security check form and deliver it to the police department by email, fax or in person. Please provide as much information as possible to help the officers better protect your home.
Normally vehicles may park on a city street for up to 24 hours. They are subject to citation and towing after 72 hours. The Public Safety Department handles abandoned vehicles on public right of way. Please call the Department at (360) 332-6769 during office hours, or click on 'Report a Concern' on the left in this page to report a vehicle that has been abandoned on public property or city streets. You will need to provide the location, vehicle description including license plate, and your contact information. You may also file the same information by emailing the Police Department. An officer will act on your complaint and may contact you if added information is needed or if you request contact. Officers will check the vehicle and attempt to locate the owner. The vehicle may be cited if abandoned on a city street: it will be towed if not removed. It is the homeowner's responsibility to take care of vehicles on their property; a tow company can assist you with removing an unwanted vehicle and there are normally fees for this service. An officer may inspect a vehicle on your private property and if appropriate will issue a 'hulk slip' for vehicles meeting certain criteria. If a vehicle has been left on your property without your permission, please call the Police Department for assistance.
The City and police department do not set fines for speeding and traffic violations. The base penalty for each violation is set by the Washington State Supreme Court (RCW 46.63.110 ). The state legislature then adds statutory assessments to these base penalties. The Monetary Penalty Schedule for Infractions (effective July 1, 2007) can be viewed from the Washington Courts website. The City retains only 57% of the base penalty amount from speeding fines and other violations. These funds go to the General Fund of the City, not to the police department or court. The remaining 43% are remitted to the State's Public Safety Education Account (PSEA). These funds are used to promote traffic safety education, highway safety, criminal justice training, crime victims’ compensation, judicial education, the judicial information system, civil representation of indigent persons, winter recreation parking, drug court operations, and state game programs.
