ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

By Lindsay Peyton

If you’re resolving to make your home or business safer this year, Mark Solomon has some advice.

Solomon, who serves as crime prevention coordinator for the Seattle’s South and Southwest Precinct, starts each day reading officers’ incident reports and gathering information about burglaries, robberies and assault in the area.

With his finger on the pulse of crime in West Seattle, he knows what residents should be most concerned about and what cautionary steps they can take.

“We see the same crime types happening over and over again,” Solomon said. “It’s a lot of property crimes and a lot of car prowls.”

To deter the theft of items left in automobiles, he suggests removing anything of value from the car’s interior and keeping the doors locked.

“Car prowls are prevalent, but they’re totally preventable,” he said. “Park in a well-lit place. If you have a garage, make room for your car in the garage. If you can’t park in a garage, can you at least move your car off the street?”

He also thinks adding a motion-sensor light near the car can prevent theft.
