ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

Over 20 captains of West Seattle blockwatches gathered at the Seattle Police Department Southwest precinct to discuss outreach efforts to revitalize and create new watches and welcome new precinct commander Cpt. Steve Paulsen back to the area.

Blockwatch Meeting Minutes for 9/28/10

“I think it’s wonderful that you are doing this. This is how you get the bad guys and take care of each other,” Cpt. Paulsen said to the watch captains in attendance, their experience as captain ranging from 19 years to just a month.

“You as citizens know your neighborhood better than anyone else, even better than the police,” he added.

Discussed first was the outreach that captains have done over the summer to encourage new block watches to organize and encourage people who live in neighborhoods where they already exist to get involved.

Karen Berge, co-chair of the captains’ network, talked about how their presence at nearly every West Seattle festival over the summer expanded their Facebook membership to 164.
