SPD Crime Dashboard Report for Magnolia 2015!

Hello all,

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 joe@magnoliapatrol.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.

Regards,

Joe Villarino

Starting Patrols on December 4th!

To Magnolia Patrol Association Contributors:

The Magnolia Patrol Association (MPA) was founded in February 2015. The goal of the association has been to increase the security of the Magnolia community and lessen the opportunity for property crimes through the presence of security patrols, surveillance and reporting.

The activation of security patrols has been delayed but a great deal of behind-the-scenes work has been accomplished since our first community meeting. The MPA Board of Directors and Advisory Council have donated hundreds of hours to ensure a considered, researched and well-planned launch of our neighborhood security patrol. Our objective was not to just “get started” but to begin a patrol strategy that would ensure success and longevity. Board members researched other neighborhood patrol procedures and practices, sought legal advice, interviewed independent patrol companies and consulted with representatives of the Seattle Police Department.

MPA understands that the need for extra security is more timely than ever. Magnolia residents are ready to take back our neighborhood with MPA’s help!

Your contributions have afforded MPA with the funds necessary to hire Central Protection (CentralProtection.com). These private security professionals will begin patrolling the Magnolia community on December 4th. The patrol cars will be easily identifiable; white and blue Hummers with the “Central Protection – Unarmed” emblem on the side of the vehicle. Each patrol employee will wear a dark blue uniform. MPA has contracted with CP for four to seven hour patrol shifts (random) for four to six days per week. CP will be informed about “hot spots” in our community. If suspicious activity is observed CP will immediately: contact 911, and maintain visual surveillance of the perpetrator until Seattle Police arrive at the scene.

The executive director of MPA will be “on duty” when CP is working in our community and will oversee the patrol activities. Magnolia residents are urged to first call 911 for any suspicious activity. A secondary call to report this suspicious activity can be made to 206-693-0633. An after-action activity report will be available to any contributor after a patrol shift is complete.

The MPA Board of Directors and Advisory Council thank you for your patience during the formation and organization of MPA. Please contact MPA with any questions, comments or concerns.

Thank you,

Christian Binkley
President
Magnolia Patrol
