Zoom Workshop April 23rd, 1:00 pm
Crime Fighting Facts, Tips, and Building Relationships during COVID-19 Response
Join the Magnolia Chamber of Commerce and Seattle Police Department West Precinct’s Barb Biondo, Crime Prevention Coordinator for the Magnolia neighborhood on Thursday, April 23rd, at 1:00 pm for a special workshop focused on reducing property crime and increasing public safety. The meeting will be held via Zoom.
Please register here.
The workshop provides an opportunity to learn the facts related to burglaries, particularly over the last five weeks since the COVID-19 response of “stay home, stay healthy” have closed down small businesses and significantly changed operating hours. With less foot traffic and customer base across Magnolia’s various business districts, concerns have spiked that businesses are at greater risk for property crimes. A few Magnolia businesses have been victims of burglary since early March.
The workshop will focus on how the West precinct is actively working to ensure burglaries are addressed by law enforcement, and how directed patrols are emphasized in problem areas. In addition, you will learn what techniques and protection measures are most effective in deterring burglaries. Finally, the workshop is aimed at bringing Magnolia together with local law enforcement to build shared awareness and enhance relationships essential to effective community policing, particularly during this unique period of time. The value added benefits include learning how best to protect your business and collaborate with law enforcement post-COVID-19!
