Follow-up from our monthly meeting

Thanks to those of you who joined us for our meeting last Tuesday!

Guest speakers, deputies Josh Sweeney and Dan Malloy from the KCSO Air Support Unit, gave an interesting and entertaining presentation.

We also appreciated the informative update from Captain Pierre Davis, Commander of the SW Precinct, and the opportunity to ask him questions.

West Seattle Blog has published coverage of the meeting here.

Hope to see you next month — on the 4th Tuesday, May 28th, 6:30 PM!

Join us on Tuesday, April 23rd at 6:30 PM for our monthly meeting!

WSBWCN-giant-logocurrentOur special guest will be Sgt. Jason Stanley and one of the night shift pilots of the Guardian One helicopter! 

Guardian One is a familiar sight over West Seattle, helping Seattle Police from the air to apprehend suspects. The team from the Air Support Unit of the King County Sheriff’s Office will share with us in detail what they do, how the tools and technology work, and what they see from the air. We’ll also hear about some of the searches that they’ve worked on with Seattle Police.

Bring your questions and take advantage of this opportunity to learn about Guardian One. Should be a very interesting evening!

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.

Here’s the detailed agenda.

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!

Our guest speaker will be Seattle Councilmember Teresa Mosqueda, who holds one of two citywide at-large positions!

First, she will address the issue of homelessness — which is an issue of major concern that came out of our discussion at last month’s meeting (and a subsequent conversation that we had with her).

Come hear about what we can expect to happen from the city and police when we report concerns and issues regarding those living unsheltered in our neighborhoods. Time-permitting, this is also your opportunity to raise other issues that are affecting your local neighborhoods and Block Watch groups. Don’t miss this chance to talk with her in a friendly and respectful environment.

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.

[Added 3/2/19] West Seattle Blog has published coverage of the meeting here.

Join us on January 22nd for our first meeting of the year!

WSBWCN-giant-logocurrentWe have a full agenda this month with a focus on timely topics!

Our main presentation topic is 9-1-1, something most of us take for granted until something goes wrong…

Our guest speaker will be Kayreen Lum, the E-911 Outreach and Training Specialist for King County. She will talk about the recent 9-1-1 outage, what caused it, and what to do if it happens again. She’ll also explain when and how to use the relatively new option, to send text messages to 9-1-1 (which is now available in Seattle and King County).

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.

As we go round-the-room during introductions this month, please let us know (very briefly) your top Block Watch-related priorities or concerns that we might leverage for upcoming meeting topics this year. We are also gathering concerns that we can provide to our City Council member-at-large, Teresa Mosqueda. She’s asked us about the priorities and issues of most concern to our organization. Time-permitting, we’ll have a few minutes to touch on these during the meeting. If not, please send us your input via email, post a comment on our Facebook group page, or bring us a printout that we can take along.

Here’s the detailed agenda.

Confused about our meeting schedule?  We meet from 6:30 to 8 PM on most 4th Tuesdays. We do NOT meet in July and August (summer hiatus) or in November and December (winter hiatus) — since many people are away on summer vacation or busy over the winter holidays.

Our meetings will resume on January 22, 2019. We hope to see you then!
