5 Things We’re Loving About Lake Oswego in February

CATALYTIC CONVERTER ENGRAVING EVENT. According to the National Insurance Crime Bureau, the number of reported catalytic converter thefts increased from roughly 1,300 in 2018 to more than 52,000 in 2021. To help prevent a catalytic converter from being stolen, it is recommended that you have it engraved with your vehicle identification number (VIN) or at least the last 8 digits/letters of the VIN, or with your vehicle’s license plate number with the state/province. 

To assist, the Lake Oswego Police Department is offering a free catalytic converter engraving event for Lake Oswego residents. To participate, bring your vehicle to the City’s Maintenance Center, 17601 Pilkington Rd, on Saturday, February 4, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. For questions, please contact Officer Tony Sparling(link sends e-mail) at 503-635-0221.
