Join us on October 24th for our final monthly meeting of 2017!

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!

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.

Join us tomorrow, Tuesday, April 25th to talk crime prevention!

WSBWCN-giant-logocurrentJennifer Burbridge, our new Crime Prevention Coordinator, but a familiar face to many, will be our guest!

Last month, we learned that Jennifer Burbridge is stepping into a new role. She’ll be taking over crime prevention in the SW Precinct from Mark Solomon. Mark has been covering crime prevention for BOTH the SW and the South precincts. Fortunately, he’ll still be nearby working on crime prevention in the South Precinct.

Come meet and hear from Jennifer. She will outline her new responsibilities and talk about what her focus will be. We’re curious to hear how she plans to interact with the neighborhoods and with our organization of Block Watch Captains.

Please bring your questions, thoughts and ideas for our new SW Precinct Crime Prevention Coordinator!

Added, 4/27/17:  Here’s the coverage and follow-up from this meeting!

Our monthly meeting is tomorrow, February 28th!

WSBWCN-giant-logocurrentWe’ll have an in-depth update from Captain Pierre Davis on issues and activity within the SW Precinct.

As well, we’ll have some time for open discussion, as opposed to a presentation. This is our chance to discuss top-of-mind Block Watch-related issues, continue discussion on topics raised in earlier meetings, and ask for advice on neighborhood-specific problems. As we noted last month, we’d also like to hear your ideas on what you’d like to learn, accomplish or change at future meetings.

Join us on Tuesday, January 24th, for our monthly meeting!

WSBWCN-giant-logocurrentThis will be our first West Seattle Block Watch Captains’ Network meeting of the new year, as well as the beginning of our 8th year as an organization. 

Apologies for posting this agenda so late. Our invited guest is Officer Todd Wiebke, Community Police Team (CPT) Officer from the SW Precinct. He works on the homeless camp issues in our community. Some of you may have seen posts he has written about some of the challenges.

Note:  We learned late this week that Officer Wiebke has been asked to help with a large homeless camp in another precinct, so he may not be able to attend our meeting after all. We’ll post an update when we get an update from him.

If he isn’t able to attend, we’ll have extra time to discuss other issues and topics, ask additional questions of SW Precinct leaders,  and catch up on crime/safety issues that have come up in our neighborhoods since our last meeting.
