I locked my keys in my car. Can an officer unlock it?
Officers or VIPS (Volunteers In Police Service) can help if you call Dispatch at 253-852-2121. You will be required to sign a hold harmless waiver acknowledging that potential damage may occur.
I need to get my stuff out of my residence, but I don't feel safe going alone.
Call Dispatch, 253-852-2121, to request a Civil Standby. An officer will stand by to keep the peace but not intervene or determine ownership of property if there is a dispute.
Please note that crimes in progress will take priority over a civil standby and you may be required to wait for an available officer.
