West Seattle Blockwatch Captains Network meeting March 28

We’ll have an update from Captain Pierre Davis on issues and activity within the SW Precinct.

We also tentatively plan to have a guest from the 9-1-1 Center, to explain the system and their process, and to answer some of the questions we’ve been hearing.

If not, we’ll build on some of the ongoing discussion from previous meetings, and ask for advice on neighborhood-specific problems. As we noted earlier this year, we’d also like to hear your ideas on what you’d like to learn, accomplish or change at future meetings.
