The Watch Your Car decal program is a free, voluntary program whereby City of Yakima vehicle owners enroll their vehicles or trailers with the Yakima Police Department. You must live within the City limits of Yakima to participate in the Yakima Police Department’s Watch Your Car Program. The vehicle/trailer is entered into the YPD Watch Your Car database; participants receive decals for their front and rear windows. By displaying the decals, vehicle owners convey to law enforcement officials that their vehicle is not usually driven between 1:00 AM and 5:00 AM, when the majority of auto thefts occur.

You can now enroll your trailers in YPD’s Watch Your Car program.


If a police officer witnesses the vehicle in operation between these hours, they have the right to stop the vehicle and verify it is being legally operated by the rightful owner.
