Crime prevention highlighted

Wondering how to obtain the tools for crime prevention for you, your family and workplace?
   You'll have an opportunity to pick the brains of two great sources of crime prevention information - Woodinville Police Chief Ken Wardstrom and City Councilmember Robert Miller, a reserve officer for the City of Seattle Police Department.
   Along with City Manager Pete Rose, both will be at Wilmot Gateway Park Saturday, Oct. 7, from 9 to 11 a.m. to discuss crime prevention for the home, neighborhood and business community.
   On October 9th, the City Council will proclaim October as Crime Prevention month; hoping to raise individual awareness of crime prevention and personal safety. Neighborhoods can join forces to form a Neighborhood Watch program in which suspicious activity is immediately reported to the police and the homeowner's driver's license number identifies personal property.To obtain crime prevention materials or to host a Neighborhood Block Watch meeting, contact Marie Stake, Communications Coordinator at 425-489-2700 extention 245 or email maries@woodinville-city.com.
