Our January monthly meeting is this Tuesday, the 22nd!

WSBWCN-giant-logocurrentOur January meeting of the West Seattle Block Watch Captains’ Network is next Tuesday, 1/22. We are starting the new year with a great agenda!

Our new/returning SW Precinct Captain, Joe Kessler will stop by to meet us. He will talk to us a little about his priorities and you’ll have a chance to ask him questions.

After that, the main discussion topic for the meeting will be residential Surveillance Cameras. We see growing use of these cameras in our area since costs for them have decreased and they make it easy to document activities around our homes/neighborhood and offer the ability to retro-actively lookup information after a crime has been committed.

I’m looking for more people who are knowledgeable about the technologies that are available and/or what to look for when buying and installing this equipment to participate in a panel discussion or provide a demo.  If you are that person, or you know of someone who could, please contact me so I can expect you:  wsblockwatchnet@gmail.com.

Our October monthly meeting is this Tuesday, the 23rd!

Since Halloween is this month, our main topic is about new ways to report SCARY STUFF…

Do you know about CORP, the Community Online Reporting Program? Have you ever used it?  Want to know what happens to the information after you report it?  Is it better to call in a report or use the online reporting tool?

Sgt. Steve White is the Seattle Police Department’s Project Coordinator for CORP. He will demo the tool, discuss how and when to use it; he will also answer your questions and talk about some new features that are on the horizon.
