REMINDER: WS Block Watch Captains take on "CPTED" April 23rd

CPTED = Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design

Meeting notice from the West Seattle Block Watch Captains' Network:

Learn (more) about Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design!

Join us this coming Tuesday, the 23rd, for our April meeting!

Officer Jon Kiehn from the Community Police Team will give his very popular presentation on Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED, pronounced "Sep-Ted").

Learn how to reduce the chances that your home will be the target for burglaries. It’s an interesting and enlightening presentation (think “target hardening” and “hostile vegetation”).

Even if you saw Officer Kiehn's presentation last year, you’ll come away with new ideas and insights about changes that you can make for little to no money to make your home and neighborhood a safer place to be. Feel free to send/bring photos if you have specific issues to ask him about!

This presentation was originally scheduled for last month's meeting; however, SW Precinct Commander, Capt. Kessler was able to stay longer than we had anticipated. If you missed that meeting, here's the recap.

Meeting schedule (Come early, stay late!)
Tuesday, April 23, 2013, 6:30-8 PM
