Halloween is almost here! The weather looks like it will cooperate! Here are some safety reminders for tomorrow. Parents โ€ข Ensure younger children are accompanied by an adult when trick-or-treating. โ€ข Older children should trick-or-treat in pairs or groups. โ€ข Children should carry flashlights, glow sticks or wear reflective tape to increase visibility. โ€ข Instruct children not to eat their treats until they have returned home and an adult can examine them. Avoid homemade treats and throw out anything that looks suspicious. Children โ€ข Do not trick-or-treat alone. โ€ข Cross streets only at corners and in crosswalks. Obey traffic signals. โ€ข Stay on well-lit streets. โ€ข Never go inside a home or enter a car (unless it is arranged by a parent). โ€ข Wait until you return home to eat treats. Motorists โ€ข Drive slowly and cautiously. โ€ข Keep alert for children crossing the street.

Shout out to Skagit County Deputies Walton and Struiksma! Yesterday, in broad daylight, someone brazenly stole this bike from a house on the south side of Bellingham. The bike was registered through a free online database ( and the owner was able to provide BPD with the serial number when the theft report was taken. This morning one of our officers discovered that a Deputy located the bike in Skagit Valley. He had attempted to contact a male who then ran into the woods and left the bike behind. Since the serial number was on file in a national database (and not just listed in BPD's local report writing system), the officer was able to reunite the bike with its owner, less than 24 hours after it was stolen. We canโ€™t over emphasize the importance of registering your bike, or at least documenting your serial number. Although it doesnโ€™t guarantee that youโ€™ll get it back after a theft, it definitely helps your chances. Thanks for the assist Skagit County Sheriffโ€™s Office!

We had some pretty amazing girls visit us yesterday! Girls Scout Troop 44373 stopped by to present us with their โ€œGift of Caringโ€...can you say Girl Scout ๐Ÿช yum!!

What hearts for their community ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’™

Be careful out there. Take some extra time and Travel With Care. If, by chance, you come across a leaf clogged storm drain in your travels, and you can safely unclog it- the public works crew is asking for help keeping the drains clear.

We need some help identifying some theft suspects. Two of these fellas used duffel bags to help themselves to aquarium supplies while the third tried to distract the clerk. Pretty good photos so weโ€™re hoping you can tell us who they are. TIA. 17B 53987
