Crime in Shoreline

Last night, a car was broken into on N. 180th Street and a few personal items were stolen. The car's owner also mentioned having seen damaged mailboxes in the area, and wondered whether they might be related. I've seen some mailboxes which had broken-off doors; have any readers had that problem? Any car break-ins?

The city of Shoreline's police department will no doubt be interested in any evidence or reports of crimes; to reach them you can call (206) 546-6730 between 8 am and 5 pm or (206) 296-3311 after hours; send email to; or of course call 911 in case of an emergency. The department also has an anonymous tip line: (206) 546-7861. They ask that you use one of the above numbers to report a crime, and only call the tip line if you have clues which might help the police solve a crime.

You can download PDF crime maps showing crimes committed by the month in Shoreline on the city website, here, though they are a few months behind (the most recent is from July of this year).
