Tired of reading about crime? It’s time to learn what you can do to keep your home, family and community safe. The Crown Hill Neighborhood Association is sponsoring a community meeting for residents and businesses to learn about crime in and around your neighborhood. Find out how to start up a BlockWatch on your block, and if you already have one, learn what you can do to make it more effective.
Weâ€™ll have two representatives from the Seattle Police Department here for a short presentation and to answer questions from the community. Terrie Johnston, Crime Prevention Coordinator, will handle questions about preventing crime from happening in the first place, how to set up that BlockWatch, secure your homes, traveling safely, etc.Â Terrie is one ofÂ four remaining Crime Prevention Coordinators in the Seattle Police Department.Â She is assigned to the North Precinct and is available to support neighborhood block watches, assist with property security audits, and help troubleshoot neighborhood public safety issues.Â Scott McGlashan, Community Police Officer can fill us in on what kinds of crime we are seeing in the area, how it relates to Seattle overall, and how to interact with the 911 dispatchers when crimes do occur, how to provide useful information to the police, etc. Scottâ€™s beat covers from NW 110th and 3rd Ave NW, south to the Ship Canal and west to the Sound.
