Minutes for NSCNA General Meetings are available online at www.salmoncreeklive.com
Treasurer Dave Farrell absent. President reported no recent expenses so account balance has not changed.
Deputy Andrew Kennison reminded members to report incidents when happening using 911. Calling 311 later, after incident, not as effective. Deputy asked about public access to police data showing neighborhood crime rates and types. Deputy said he would check on this and report back. Reporting graffiti – Sheriffs Dept cannot help with graffiti unless they catch in process. Report graffiti to appropriate organization depending on location. e.g. local bridge, call Public Works.
Neighbors on Watch (NOW) Volunteer community members work in pairs and are either assigned to an area to patrol or patrol in your own neighborhood. If you are interested in volunteering, please email Kasey Frazier in the Sheriff’s Office [email protected] or call her at 360-397-2211 X3380
