West Seattle Crime Watch: Maps of what’s happening where

That is one of four Seattle Police-created maps, each tracking a certain category of crime in the area covered by the Southwest Precinct — West Seattle and South Park — over the Dec. 8-Jan. 4 period, just received and circulated by Pete Spalding via the Pigeon Point Council e-mail list. (The letter/number designations are the official names of the patrol sectors in the precinct’s coverage area.) As far as we know, these aren’t available online, but Pete confirmed he was encouraged to share them with neighbors, and certainly you’re a neighbor. Read on to see the other three:

Sorry, we don’t have comparative statistics for previous four-week periods. We’ll be checking with police next week to see if that’s available and if this is something new that will be available monthly, or a one-time thing. Otherwise, as reported yesterday, the 2007 crime stats by neighborhood can be found on the newly revamped My Neighborhood Map.

    Interesting, my house isn’t shown… lots of discussion about our event was posted here on WSB at the time too… maybe because the 4 individuals didn’t actually make it into the house before 2 of them were caught in the act?

    Let’s act as a community to stop this!! My car was vandalized, door broken, broken window, busted steering column GPS stolen, catalitic coverter stolen etc from inside a locked garage. $5000 worth of damage. The day I got my car back it was broken into again. This time the door was busted.

    i drive an older used car on purpose and no one’s ever interested in it. I also never leave ANYTHING not an ounce of anything in the car, on the seats, on the floor or even in the little organizers. out of site, out of mind. i’m always AMAZED at how much crap people leave in their cars and then wonder why people are breaking in.

    KD –
    Bummer for you! You really got nailed. Yikes!

    If you are in a condo, do you have a responsive HOA? Have you approached your HOA group about addressing immediate possible security issues within the building? I’m a homeowner, so I’m not familiar…what are the parameters for insurance and liability in a locked garage if one pays homeowner’s dues? Does your condo association or apartment building participate in an active Block Watch group? Just a few thoughts and sorry again they got ya’. And here’s to hoping they stay the heck away.

Sorry, comment time is over.
