Public Safety Forum for Delridge residents – March 29

7 p.m., SPD Southwest Precinct Community Room (2300 S.W. Webster St.)
Lt. Pierre Davis, operations commander at the SPD Southwest Precinct, told the SW District Council about an upcoming Public Safety Forum for the Delridge corridor and surrounding area ( The Delridge District borders are Spokane Street to the North, the Duwamish River to the East, Roxbury to the South and 35th Avenue to the West, in general, but certainly anyone is invited).

“We want to strengthen the blockwatch capabilities in those areas,” Lt. Davis said, referencing the success of community outreach in other areas of West Seattle earlier this year after a large spike in property crime over the holidays. “We would like to do the same thing for the Delridge corridor only because we see that it is an area that is really underreporting crime.”

Lt. Davis said the basic message SPD hopes to impart upon Delridge area residents is, “If you see something, say something.”

Flyers and additional information will be distributed in Delridge neighborhoods prior to the forum.
