May Crime Prevention Newsletter focuses on vehicle and property crimes!

Learn about personal safety for kids, vehicle security and more!

Join us on Saturday, November 15th, 10 to 11 AM at the Youngstown Cultural Arts Center (4408 Delridge Way SW, Seattle, WA 98106)!

Officer Jon Kiehn from SPD’s Community Police Team will host a conversation about Personal Safety for Kids. Everyone is welcome — parents, kids, and the community! Officer Kiehn will focus on personal safety from a kid’s perspective; he notes that this session will be especially relevant for kids who are ages 6 to 10.

Personal safety for kids is the featured topic at the “Public Safety” breakout session at this year’s Gathering of Neighbors; but, this training session will also touch on other public safety issues including vehicle security – an ongoing issue in our neighborhoods; Kay Godefroy, Director of Seattle Neighborhood Group (and a fellow West Seattleite) will offer insights and solutions to this problem.

We’re co-hosting this Public Safety session with Seattle Neighborhood Group. We hope to see you there!  We’ve included informational flyers with additional details below.
