Does the Ankeny Police Department unlock vehicles?

The Ankeny Police Department does not generally unlock vehicles. The only exception is an emergency situation such as a child locked inside a running vehicle.

This informal policy is due to the increasing complexity of car security systems and side-impact airbags, Attempts to open may cause damage to the vehicle or injury to an officer. Please contact a locksmith to open vehicles.
