PSA: Prevent auto theft by following these simple guidelines

According to this Kirkland Police Department placard posted around town, auto thefts have more than doubled since 2012. The KPD suggests we follow the steps of H.A.L.T.:

H - Hide all valuables

A - Activate alarm and lock your vehicle

L - Lighted and unobstructed-view parking

T - Trust your instincts

And as always, in case of emergency, please dial 9-1-1.
