NOTES FROM THE BURGLARY INFORMATION MEETING
February 22, 2010


The Greater Hollywood Hill Area is currently suffering from a burglary crime wave. The Hollywood Hill Association sponsored, and the Farm neighborhood hosted, a community meeting to discuss the problem, and explore ways to prevent further burglaries.

Thanks to all who attended. We had standing room only, well over 100 people! Detective Stephen Soule of the King County Sheriff's Department gave us a history of the local wave of burglaries and we had a good discussion of burglary prevention suggestions. A summary of the important points follows.

For the future

Since the best way we can help prevent crime in our community is communication, we will be exploring ways to further communication and community. Some tools we will be exploring include improved email communication and possibly a "wiki"-style information source to aid in aggregating and disseminating information and suggestions. Watch this space for further developments.
