WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: 20+ ways to deter property crime

As reported in our most-recent coverage of police briefings at community meetings – like the West Seattle Block Watch Captains Network and Highland Park Action Committee last week – car prowling in our area has dropped significantly, but property crime overall remains the major problem. So this month’s newsletter from Southwest Precinct Crime Prevention Coordinator Jennifer Burbridge offers more than 20 specific suggestions of ways to deter it:

As mentioned toward the end of the newsletter, and as already previewed here, your next chance to talk face-to-face with local police – outside an emergency response! – is Wednesday afternoon at Alki Starbucks (2742 Alki Ave. SW), 2-4 pm, for the next Coffee With A Cop.

    Good advice. And remember, if you value it, don’t leave it in your vehicle. Period. Also, for packages…depending on where you live, consider Amazon lockers, if you’re having a delivery from them.  In Admiral, there is a locker at Admiral Safeway. Yes, it involves making a trip there, but your package will be safe while you’re at work, etc. Lockers are in various neighborhoods now. It simply makes sense.
