The Seattle Police Department and the Phinney Neighborhood Association are hosting a meeting on Monday to discuss the future of the Block Watch Program, since city budget cuts may mean that all SPD Crime Prevention Coordinator positions are eliminated at the end of the year.
What will that mean to the Block Watch Program? How can the neighborhood’s established block watches work together to support each other and keep our neighbors safe?
Terrie Johnston, the SPD North Precinct Crime Prevention Coordinator, will be a special guest at the meeting. Refreshments will be served. Block watch captains are particularly encouraged to attend but the meeting is open to anyone interested.
The meeting is at 7 p.m. Monday at the Phinney Neighborhood Center, 6532 Phinney Ave. N.
