When you enroll in the “Watch Your Car” program, please be aware that you are allowing law enforcement officials to stop your vehicle/trailer between the hours of 1:00 AM and 5:00 AM. Additionally, when you elect to transfer ownership of the vehicle, you will be responsible for removing both stickers and informing this office of your cancellation.  Both decals will be mailed to you within 2-4 weeks.

ONLY register one vehicle per document. You must be a live within the City limits of Yakima to participate in the Yakima Police Department’s Watch Your Car Program.

The following is REQUIRED information. The information you provide will be secured only by the Yakima Police Department. The purpose of enrollment is to provide the owner with a vehicle theft deterrent program and to determine legal ownership of a stolen vehicle recovered by law enforcement officials, as quickly as possible.

  • I agree that persons operating my vehicle with consent in the City of Yakima between the hours of 1:00 AM and 5:00 AM are subject to a police stop under circumstances in which the police reasonably suspect that the vehicle may be stolen. In these instances, police action will include the necessary precautions generally taken to protect officers when approaching a potentially stolen vehicle. I also agree specifically to advise the person to whom I give possession of the vehicle, that this agreement exists and that they will be subject to being stopped by the police during the prescribed hours. I will not authorize such person to let anyone use the vehicle. I understand that if the vehicle is driving between 1:00 AM and 5:00 AM and an officer gets behind the vehicle, the registered owner will receive a call from YPD verifying that the vehicle shouldn't be driving. I understand that in order to withdraw from participation in this program, I must remove the decals from my vehicle and notify the Yakima Police Department in writing. I further agree to remove the decals prior to the sale or transfer of ownership on my participating vehicle. If I change my address and/or telephone number, I agree to notify YPD in writing.
    I agree that I am the registered owner / authorized agent of the vehicle.

    I further consent and agree to indemnify and hold harmless any local, county, state or federal duly sworn law enforcement officer or agency against any and all claims arising from my participation in this program.
