Police volunteers who earned 5 year pins this year
Flanked by police leaders

According to Shoreline Police, the West Storefront closed its doors on July 31st after being in the Hillwood/Richmond Beach neighborhood for over 17 years. Officer Leona Obstler, who has staffed the storefront with as many as 15 police volunteers, said that although they will miss the neighborhood, the plentiful crime prevention and customer services offered will continue at their new office space at City Hall.

Shoreline Police volunteers contribute 4,000 - 5,000 hours of time each year. Programs such as Vacation House Checks, Victim Call Backs, Block Watch, Citizens Academy, Landlord Training Program, crime mapping and many other crime prevention services will still be available to the Shoreline community.

You can access information via the police webpage, visit the East Storefront at 521 NE 165th St in the Ridgecrest neighborhood, or visit our new crime prevention and volunteer services office on the 2nd Floor at City Hall, 17500 Midvale Ave N.

The small shopping center which has housed the storefront is being rebuilt, with new shops and stores coming in, and there is no longer room for the storefront.

It is not true, there was no room at the shopping center. The City was offered an inside corner location and declined.
