Free catalytic converter etching event

To help deter catalytic converter thefts, the Bellevue Police Department is launching Project CATCON ID with a free etching event. CATCON ID promotes theft prevention measures, including painting and etching events, where community members can get the last eight digits of their vehicle identification number etched on their catalytic converter and painted for free.

Painted and etched catalytic converter

Honda Auto Center of Bellevue is hosting the first event with appointments available Monday-Friday, March 7-11th, from 1:00 – 5:00 pm. Appointments are required and will take approximately 30 minutes. You can register through this link.

Bellevue police officers and our Crime Prevention Officer will also be on hand to give out a sticker to place in the windshield, indicating their catalytic converters have been marked as a further deterrence. They will also be available to answer questions about safety and crime prevention. 

Earlier this week, Chief Wendell Shirley announced the Eastside Catalytic Converter Task Force to help crack down on the thefts, including those buying the converters, stating there’s no easy solution to this rising problem. “We need to tackle this from all angles. Our task force will investigate and arrest the thieves. But we also need to partner with our residents and educate them to help prevent thefts in the first place. Etching the VIN and painting the converters will deter some thieves and scrap yards from buying them.”

The Everett Police Department initiated Project CATCON ID with great success helping their residents get their converters etched and painted. The National Insurance Crime Bureau has also financially supported these projects to help crackdown on catalytic converter thefts.

New Catalytic Converter Task Force to tackle thefts

With skyrocketing catalytic converter thefts across the country and in King County, nine Eastside law enforcement agencies, including eight police departments and the King County Sheriff’s Office, are banding together to combat catalytic converter theft. The task force members will share case information, intelligence and resources to help address the costly and growing crime problem.

News conference to announce the Catalytic Converter Task Force

“We have seen exponential growth in catalytic converter thefts across the region and it needs to stop,” said Bellevue Police Chief Wendell Shirley at a news conference announcing the task force. “These thieves are hopping from city to city stealing these converters in a matter of minutes. We’ll have a much better chance catching the prolific offenders by combining our investigative resources.”

Stolen catalytic converter recovered by police

A catalytic converter is a device that converts toxic exhaust gases from an internal combustion engine into less-toxic pollutants. The converters contain precious metals in a muffler-like package attached to the exhaust pipe. It’s readily accessible underneath the car, and thieves can steal them within minutes. They sell them for the precious metals, and it can cost car owners thousands to replace.

“Catalytic converter theft is a big problem with no easy solution. We need to think outside the box when tackling this issue and target the thieves and those that purchase the stolen catalytic converters,” Shirley added. “We believe the Catalytic Converter Task Force put us in a better position to do that.”

The departments formed the task force in November, and the agencies have already arrested 11 catalytic converter thieves. The departments are sharing that information and building a database to track and investigate potential “bigger fish.”

The nine law enforcement agencies on the task force include Bellevue, King County Sherriff’s Office, Redmond, Kirkland, Bothell, Medina, Clyde Hill, Mercer Island and Issaquah.

In addition to the task force, the Bellevue Police Department is launching Project CATCON ID, which will offer residents free catalytic converter etching & painting events to help deter thieves, as well as other theft prevention strategies. Details on the Project CATCON ID events will be announced soon.

Transformational Policing comes to Bellevue – aims to strengthen community relations  

The Bellevue Police Department is launching a new ongoing training program to bring officers and community members together to have candid conversations that build trust and understanding. This training will address critical topics, including implicit bias, procedural justice, use of force, and police reform.

“This training is critical to building trusting relationships with the communities we serve,” said Chief Wendell Shirley (Interim). “Every one of our officers will attend this training with the goal that both the officers and community members will come away with mutual respect and understanding.”

The initial training, Transformational Policing Model (TPM), offers a cultural shift that promotes justice and equity and fosters trust and collaborative community relationships. TPM provides a safe place for community members and officers to have frank discussions, focusing on unity, understanding, inclusivity and education. TPM also focuses on the history of police and community relations to give perspective to the crucial conversations that occur during the training. The result empowers officers to make positive changes to benefit the communities they protect and instills community confidence in policing.

The 16-hour interactive course is scheduled for February 23-26, 2022, and will pair 15 community members with 15 police officers. Due to the pandemic, this workshop will be held virtually, with future sessions in person.

“The Bellevue Police department enjoys tremendous support from our community, but we can always improve. We want to get everyone in the room for an honest discussion about the important social justice issues facing us today, and we want to find solutions,” Shirley stated. “We are committed to working on these issues and building the best police-community partnership we can.”

There will be opportunities for community members to take part in future trainings and make an impact on policing in Bellevue. If you would like to explore Transformational Policing, please register here. You will be notified of future trainings.

Car stolen after detail shop rammed

Suspect(s) slammed a white Chevy Cruz into an auto detail shop in the 2200 block 120th Ave NE just before 10:30 pm Monday, February 14. Another suspect arrived in a separate vehicle, then the suspects entered the shop, and one fled in a stolen Porsche. Another suspect took off in the Chevy that they used to break into the building, and the third suspect sped away in the third car. A total of three vehicles were involved, two that the suspects arrived in and one that was stolen.

31-year-old suspect in custody

A short time later, Washington State Patrol responded to a single-car crash involving the Porsche near NE 8th St and the northbound I-405 onramp. Troopers located a 31-year-old male and arrested him in connection with the car theft.

When officers ran the plates of the Chevy Cruz, they learned Fife PD had just impounded it after it was used to ram into a dealership in that city. The suspects fled that scene on foot.

We are still searching for at least two suspects. The investigation is ongoing.
