We have finally received our crime report for December 2015. I have attached a pdf file of SPD’s crime dashboard to compare December 2014 and December 2015. You can see that during our patrols in the month of December we saw a 7% decrease in property crimes and we also saw a 7% decrease across the board of all crimes in Magnolia.
We are continuing our patrols each month with a reduction of 3 days a week 7 hours a day compare to our coverage in December of 5 days a week 6 hours a day. We have covered shifts from days, afternoons, evenings and late night. I have sent out our daily activity reports to our contributors after each shift the following day. I also on occasion have sent out reports to everybody on our list who have contributed or not contributed.
We have received many praises from our contributors, community, and residents from other neighborhoods. The NeigborhoodSafetyAlliance.org is a major supporter for private patrols in all neighborhoods in Seattle and many of the organizers from the NSA are from Magnolia and are contributors to Magnolia Patrol.
Their are several neighborhoods in the city that have reached out to us and in the early stages of setting up a patrol program. They are Queen Anne Patrol, Loyal Heights, and North Green Lake.
We currently have over 135 contributors and are still getting contributions every week. If you have not consider contributing please do so, the more contributors we have the more patrols we can add to our patrol coverage in the community.
The vacation request have been very popular for our contributors and we are looking into having an additional fee for anyone looking to have daily or weekly house checks. If this interests you please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you like the idea and their is enough interest the board will discuss the possibility of adding this service.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us anytime.
