Update from SCSO

I received this update from the SCSO yesterday, along with the Jan/Feb Newsletter.

Reminder: The SCSO is hosting a meeting tomorrow night, 2/7 @ 6:30 in the Mariner High School theater to discuss the recent rise in burglary in South Snohomish County.  I’ll post a write-up afterward for those that are unable to attend.

Greetings to our partners in crime prevention,

Burglaries are up in some areas of the county, so now is a good time to review burglary prevention basics with your Neighborhood Watch groups:

  • Are your exterior doors and windows well secured?
  • Is the exterior of your home well lit, and are trees and shrubs trimmed, so that burglars have nowhere to hide?
  • Have you considered installing a good, loud alarm system in your home?  Many are now available at a very reasonable price.
  • Have you made a complete inventory of your belongings, including photos and serial numbers, and stored it in a safe place?
  • Are you keeping an eye on your neighborhood and calling 9-1-1 if you see something suspicious?

Attached is the latest edition of our Partners in Crime Prevention newsletter.   You’ll find many good tips to get you thinking about ways to make your home a harder target for burglars.  You can also visit the Sheriff’s website at http://sheriff.snoco.org for crime prevention tip sheets and archived editions of our newsletter.  Feel free to print and share any information you find useful.

As always, thanks go to long-time Neighborhood Watch captain Steve Moller for writing this newsletter; it wouldn’t get done without him!
