FYI: A Quick Look at Woodinville Police Report for 2016

Based on the 2016 Annual Police Services Report, it looks like Woodinville is headed in the right direction.

What’s Decreased?

  • Crimes like robbery, burglary, and aggravated assault decreased.
  • Forced entry residential burglaries declined from 18 in 2015 to 12 in 2016.
  • Car prowls on the decline
    • “Lock it to Stop it” campaign appears to be working.
      • Lock up your cars, roll up the windows, and take valuables out of your car if possible. Let’s limit the temptation for these types of crimes.

What’s Increased?

  • Non-forced entries
    • “This was based in large part to the series of burglaries committed at the Brittany Park facility. Approximately, 11 residential burglaries happened there over a very short time frame. Two suspects were arrested and charged with those crimes”. WE GOT EM! (and by we, I mean the police led by Detective Jaboe)
    • The rest of the non-forced burglaries occurred by way of open/unlocked garage doors, windows etcetera. Lock up your homes!


  • Coming soon:
    • How to avoid becoming a victim of fraud/identity theft.
    • Personal Safety and Situational Awareness class- continued to due previous success and higher attendance.
  • Under Consideration:
    • A course taking a citizen through the investigative process of an officer involved shooting- This sounds interesting and like a good way to better understand the complexity of this issue!
