Join us on Tuesday, September 24th at 6:30 PM for our monthly meeting!

WSBWCN-giant-logocurrentOur special guest will be Brian Smith, 9-1-1 Administrative Manager at the Seattle Police Department’s 9-1-1 Center!  

He will briefly explain how the 911 Center operates, then offer his insights on how we can more effectively communicate to get the best possible results. Bring your questions!

We’ve posed several “what if” questions already, which arose from recent weather-related situations in the news. What would be the best way to provide location information if you are in an unfamiliar area, or a flood or some other emergency has made the familiar unrecognizable? Can they find you with your cell or mobile phone? What could we do if our mobile device is rapidly losing power? 

We’ll begin the meeting with a few announcements; introductions; and an update from SW Precinct leadership, Captain Pierre Davis on recent and current crime/safety issues. This is our first fall meeting following our annual summer hiatus (and one of only two before the end of this calendar year). 

Here’s the detailed agenda.

Guardian One is a familiar sight over West Seattle, helping Seattle Police from the air to apprehend suspects.

[Update 4/29/19] West Seattle Blog has posted coverage of the meeting.

Canceled: Tuesday, March 26th monthly meeting!

There will be no West Seattle Blockwatch meeting this month, but be sure to reserve time for the next monthly meeting on April 23rd. Our guests will be from the King County Air Support team. Come and meet the folks who help out SPD with the Guardian One helicopter.

Our guest will be Sgt. Jason Stanley and one of the night shift pilots. They will discuss their operations, their attempts to balance the noise with the mission and bring some stories and footage as well. 

Some of you may remember when Pilot Hersh Hoaglan gave a great presentation to our group in 2015; he showed us some amazing footage from their view in the sky. Don’t miss this opportunity on April 23rd to learn (or learn more) about Guardian One and the Air Support team’s work!

See you next month!
