A reminder that we’ll meet on Tuesday, October 24th, from 6:30-8 PM in our usual meeting room at the SW Police Precinct, 2300 SW Webster Street (at Delridge Ave SW, next to Home Depot).

We are still finalizing the agenda, so it’s not too late to suggest a topic! We’ll post it here as the date gets closer. As always, we’ll have updates from SW Precinct Commander, Captain Pierre Davis.

Does it seem early to be wrapping up our meetings for the year? It’s because we meet on 4th Tuesdays. Thanksgiving and the Christmas holidays typically fall too close to that day.

Hope to see you on the 24th!

Highlights from our September meeting!

Thanks to all who attended our monthly meeting last night! Our agenda included  updates from SW Precinct leadership and attendees about incidents that took place in our neighborhoods over the summer. As well, I led a brief discussion about emergency preparedness.

West Seattle Blog has coverage of the meeting here.

Following up, on the emergency preparedness segment, here are links to some of the classes that I mentioned and other resources.

Our next West Seattle Block Watch Captains’ Network meeting will be on Tuesday, October 24th, 6:30 to 8 PM, in the community meeting room at the SW Precinct. We’ll post the agenda as that day gets closer.

Join us on September 26th, as our monthly meetings resume!

WSBWCN-logo Happy fall! A quick reminder that our Summer Meeting Hiatus is over and our September meeting is coming up next week.

We hope you can join us next Tuesday, September, 26th, 6:30-8 PM, in our usual meeting room at the SW Police Precinct, 2300 SW Webster Street (at Delridge Ave SW, next to Home Depot).

Should be a great meeting! We’ll have updates from SPD’s SW Precinct leadership, and lots to discuss about what’s taken place over the summer.

As well, since September is National Emergency Preparedness month, we’ll talk about that too.

We are still finalizing the agenda, so let us know if you have any additional topics or suggestions. Everyone is welcome – you need not be an active Block Watch captain to attend.

Jennifer noted:

Hello all,
