From the Chief: Crime reporting in Lake Forest Park

Wednesday, July 19, 2017

National Night Out Against Crime is scheduled for Tuesday Night August 1st this year. If you would like to plan a neighborhood party in Lake Forest Park, please get in touch with our liaison Casey Krysminski and check out our webpage for more info. 

Over the past several years, we have seen a decrease in crime here in LFP, which I firmly believe is a result of our active citizenry. We are have been talking about immediate reporting of suspicious behavior, and it is paying off.

Year to date, residential burglaries are down more than 40% and all thefts are down nearly 10%. This is not the trend of our neighboring cities. Great work LFP!

Please remember to always call 911 if you see something suspicious or even out of place. I was called yesterday by a NextDoor participant who reported to me that someone on NextDoor was warning neighbors about a suspicious vehicle in the neighborhood, however the police did not get called.

If you call us, we will come!! We understand the urgency of these types of calls and want to assure our citizens of our responsiveness.

--Chief Steve Sutton, Lake Forest Park Police
