Emergency Prevention

  • Written by The Emergency Preparedness and Public Safety Commission
The Emergency Preparedness and Public Safety Commission believes that the best way to stop a crime is to prevent it from happening in the first place.

You can help prevent petty thefts from occurring by keeping your garage door closed when you are not working around your property; by removing valuables such as cell phones, wallets and laptops from your car when not attended and by forming a block watch program.

The Woodinville Police Department would like to further develop our city’s crime prevention efforts by expanding our block watch program.

Among her many duties, Officer Shelia Starrett has been tasked with assisting block watch groups with the National Night Out events to be held in respective neighborhoods.

If you are a block watch captain, would like to be become one or would like to know if there is a block watch program in your neighborhood, please contact Officer Starrett at (425) 877-2284.

We are pretty fortunate to live here in Woodinville. Our crime rate is low and continues to fall. There are several reasons for this, but one reason is YOU. Neighbors like you take time to keep an eye out for others and participate in block watch programs. If you do not already have a block watch program in your neighborhood, the opportunity to start one is just around the corner.

This month we will celebrate the annual National Night Out. This year’s event will take place on August 2 in the various neighborhoods around town.

National Night Out is an event that is organized to heighten awareness of crime and drug prevention by strengthening neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships.
