Night Out parties in Lake Forest Park
By Steve Sutton, Chief LFP Police

National Night Out Against Crime Tuesday night was a great success! 

There were 37 parties this year! The map of this year’s parties shows that we have the City covered.

Officers and City staff were able to make it to every party again this year.

We talked to the community about several topics:

Residential Burglaries are down 40% year to date. Keep calling in suspicious behavior, get an alarm, video surveillance equipment, and communicate with your neighbors when you gone. It works.

Mail and Package thefts are on the rise. Use Amazon Drop boxes in the area, have things shipped to a business, and get those packages off the porch ASAP.

The City has installed six active speed signs throughout the City as one component of the Safe Streets Project- we always hear about neighborhood speed issues, we are working on several traffic calming locations now. Staffing is a problem in the PD (we are three positions down), so be patient with us, we hear you.

City Administrator Phillip Hill and Mayor Jeff Johnson came out with us and passed out information regarding the Town Center Visioning project. That flyer is here, please read it and participate - your voice is needed.

Thank you LFP, your support has been great!
