There are many resources on the web that can help you protect yourself, your loved ones, and your possessions. Here, we offer a few tips and encourage you to visit other sites as well.

Additional resources include: 

Crime Stoppers

Fighting crime is not just a job for the police. Everyone can join the battle through Crime Stoppers. The citizen-support program allows people to tell about criminal activity without getting directly involved. Anyone with information on a felony crime can call Crime Stoppers at (206) 343-2020 or toll free at 1 (800) CRIME-13 and give the tip to police without giving his/her name. Cash rewards of up to $1,000 are paid for information leading to the arrest.

Block Watch

Setting up a Block Watch is based on the principle that neighbors working together are the first, and best, line of defense against crime.  The primary purpose of a Block Watch program is the protection of property — yours and your neighbors.  So take an active role in your community by forming a neighborhood Block Watch program.  Time and time again, it has been proven that a good neighbor is one of the most effective crime prevention tools ever invented!
