Southwest Pre- cinct Crime Prevention Coordi- nator Mark Solomon encourages Seattleites to please call 911 when they see suspicious activity ... even something as simple as an unknown vehicle driving slowly through your neighborhood. Why Report Suspicious Behavior? A neighbor on the 7900 Block of 7th Av SW called 911 because of a suspicious vehicle seen slow- ly circling the neighborhood. This neighbor gave a description of the vehicle and officers soon located a vehicle matching that description in the 9000 Block of 1 lth SW. Other-officers and burglary detec- fives amved in the area and started checking for homes that may have been burglarized. A short time later, one of the detectives noted individu- als carrying items from a home to the car. The detective activated her vehicle's emergency fights. The sus- pects saw this and fled; the items they were carrying now located in that car. While I could go on with the details about this, (such as the nine police officers and detec- tives involved in this incident. including a canine unit), the bot- tom line is that two burglary sus- pects were taken in to custody, the car was impounded and property taken from one of the homes was returned to the burglary victim. What made this all possible? A guy who lived about a mile away saw a suspicious vehicle and called 911 to report it. Never think that something is too minor to report to police. A call about a suspicious vehicle led to two burglary arrests (so far) and the recovery or property. What Is Suspicious Behavior? We can't stress enough the impor- tance of reporting suspicious behav- ior. Sometimes, people may be reluctant to call 911 about behavior that they feel is suspicious because they don't want to "burden" police with non-emergencies. Let us assure you that calling in activity or behav- ior that you feel is unusual or out of place is not a burden: it's how we know what's going on. We rely on you to tell us. Sometimes. however, a person may not know what suspicious behavior looks like. Well, to identify wharis suspicious, you first have to know what's "normal" The way you know what's normal for your neighborhood is to interact with your neighbors and be engaged in your community. By knowing your neighbors and the routine activi- ties, whether on the block you live or the areas where you work and do business, the better able you are to identify those things that seem suspicious. The more you know your neighbors on the block, which vehicles belong, which children live in the area. the better able you are to identify those suspicious people, vehicles, activities and behaviors. If it's suspicious to you. it's worth talking with your neighbors about it and worth reporting it to 91 I. Examples include: Unusual noises, including screaming, sounds of fighting, glass breaking people in and/or around buildings or areas and who do not appear to be conducting legitimate business, unauthorized people in restricted areas, people who fol- low immediately behind others into card-access areas or buildings while the door is open. vehicles driving slowly and aimlessly through neigh- borhoods, around schools or park- ing lots and, at night, without their lights on. people sitting in vehicles for extended periods of time, people peering mto parked vehicles that are not their own, people who change their behavior when they notice that they have been seen, people dressed inappropriately for the weather or occasion, (i.e., heavy coat in warm weather: or abandoned parcels or other items in unusual locations (i.e. in a lobby or elevator). Reporting Suspicious Behavior When calling 911, be prepared to give an accurate description of what is happening and where you are in relation to what is happening. There is a lot of information the call taker will ask of you. Answer to the best of your ability and be patient with him/her. They are gathering infor- mation about a situation they may be sending officers in to and that situation may be dangerous. Don't think that because you don't have all the answers that you can't call. Please call and report. If you don't report, officers can't respond. When you call 91 l. focus on what is happening now. even if you are reporting situation where there is a history of activity (neighbors who are constantly fighting with each other, for example). The call taker is trying to determine the nature of the call and what resources need to be sent: he or she doesn't need you to relate the background story. WhatThe 911 Call Taker Needs To Know Information the call taker may ask for includes: What Is happening? Where is it happemng and where are you in relation to what's hap- pening? What made the person's actions suspicious? Did the person say anything? If so, what? Were any weapons displayed or was there threat of a weapon? What was the person's last known location and direction of travel? If you are reporting a suspicious vehicle or a suspicious person in a vehicle - please provide as much information about the vehicle you can. Consider the acronym CYM- BOL - Color, Year, Make, Body style, License. Answer the call takers' questions to the best of your ability. If you don't know the answers to all the questions the call taker asks. don't worry. Answer the best you can and don't hang up until the call taker tells you it's okay to do so. Calling 911 From A Cell Phone When you call 911 from a land line, the 911 call center knows from what address yo u care calling. In the event that the person calling 911 is unable to speak (say the person is having a medical emergency), the call taker knows the address from where the call is originating and can send emergency responders. Even so. the call taker will ask your exact location. Knowing your exact location becomes even more important when you call 911 from a cell phone. When calling 911 from a celt phone, you will be routed to the jurisdiction in which you are locat- ed. For example: if you have a cell phone that has a Tacoma or even a Portland area code, but you are in Seattle and call 911, you will be routed to Seattle's 911 center. How- ever, Depending on where you are in Seattle, you may be connected with Seattle PD, Washington State Patrol (If you are on a freeway), King County or another jurisdiction that borders Seattle. The 911 opera- tor will only see your cell phone number, and your general location based on the cell tower 'closest to where you are. Since the 911 center you contact will only know the general area from where you are calling, always tell the 911 call taker exactly where you are so they can transfer you to the correct jurisdiction, if neces- sary. The 911 call taker needs your specific, physical address or near- est intersection. Don't assume they know; remember that cell phones do not give your exact location. Better To Report Than Not Remember that it is always better to report a person or situation and have it turn out not to be a crime or hazard than to not report and find out later that a crime was commit- ted. By the way, you won't get in trouble for reporting something that you feel is suspicious and upon checking it out, we discover that nothing was amiss. legals@robinsonnews.com PUBLIC NOTICES Legal/Public Notices must be received no later than 12 p.m. on Friday IN THE SUPERIOR COURT OF THE STATE OF WASHINGTON IN AND FOR THE COUNTY OF KING NO: 11-4-05448-6SEA PROBATE NOTICE TO CREDITORS RCW 11.40.030 In the matter of the estate of: MARY G.
