Block Watch for Apartments and Condos

Would you like to know more about home security, street safety or crime statistics in your neighborhood?  Are there public safety issues near your home and you would like to know how to best deal with them?  Even if these aren't your foremost concerns, starting an Apartment or Condo Watch is an easy way to meet other residents in the building and establish a sense of community. 

Starting an Apartment/Condo Watch does not require much of your time.  It means attending one meeting, usually held in your building. You will learn about the following topics:

How you can help to prevent crime in and around your home

  • Recognizing suspicious activity
  • When to call 911
  • Car prowls/car theft
  • Street narcotics activity
  • Identity/Mail Theft
  • Neighborhood crime statistics
  • Getting involved in the neighborhood

It's also a chance for you to ask questions and get to know more about the Seattle Police Department.  As an Apartment/Condo Watch member you will receive a quarterly newsletter, "Seattle Safe & Sound", Level II and III Sex Offender bulletins, and periodic crime bulletins. 

To get started, contact the Crime Prevention Coordinator for your precinct.
