Community Resource Page
This page provides relevant information to community members about the Everett Police Department. It is designed as a resource for the public to obtain information, prevent crime and provides contact information on specific units. Our goal is to provide information that can be used to help make your neighborhood safer.
The department is aware of increased local catalytic converter thefts which are a nuisance and decrease the quality of life in our community. We have dedicated resources to work on this problem and are investigating those responsible. We encourage community members to take proactive crime prevention measures, so they are not victimized.
Converters contain many different precious metals that are extremely valuable and makes the reward of theft greater than the risk of arrest. Stealing a converter is quick and simple with common metal cutting instruments. Unfortunately, victims pay around $2,000 for repairs.
While trends vary, currently targeted vehicles are the Toyota Prius and Ford E-250/F-250 (or larger with V10 Triton engines). Any vehicle can be targeted anywhere - anytime of day. Prevention may cost several hundred dollars, but replacement may cost several thousand and time to fix!
Crime Prevention Techniques:
- Mark your converter with a VIN # so it can be traced, if located
- Install an undercarriage shield or cage
- Park in a garage or well-lit area
- Weld flange bolts to the vehicle
- Install a tilt sensing vehicle alarm system
- Local exhaust/muffler shops may be able to incorporate metal rods alongside your converter

File an online report
Online Reporting is designed for save citizens time when they have been victims of non-emergent crimes. This system cannot be used for felonies, crimes where the suspect is known, if the crime address is unknown, or if the value of something stolen or damaged exceeds $5,000.
- Call 911 to report emergencies and in-progress crimes.
