Our neighbour at 120th & 17th has a cat that’s been missing for a few months now. She’s put fliers in everyone’s mailbox around here, but I wanted to pass this on to as many as possible. And, before you ask, yes I’ve been checking the ‘found cat’ posts lol.
He’s a grey tom, not sure of his name, but she refers to him as ‘grey one’. He is not the grey tom w/a red collar that is also around here (that one is ‘squeaker’, lives in the culdesac on 17th, and is still popping up, so I don’t think he’s missing). If anyone spots him, or has seen him, please call Suzy at (206) 902-8197, or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll pass it on to her.
Display & Costume is participating in a toy drive for Children’s Hospital.
Also, next weekend, 11/18 – 11/20, they are holding a Christmas Open House.
This week’s artist is a mystery. A boy drew this fine picture at Pinehurstfest but he didn’t sign it. Thank you, whoever you are! Come see this piece in the kiosk at NE 117th St and 19th Ave NE.
f you would like to submit artwork for the Pocket Park, please email email@example.com. We’ll put it on matt board donated for this purpose by FRAMEIT Ltd, 539 NE Northgate Way.
PhinneyWood is reporting that BECU is closing their Greenwood Safeway location and relocating to 551 NE Northgate Way. The new location is set to open on December 5th.
As a BECU member, I’m very happy to be getting a branch in the neighborhood, especially a snapshot ATM for depositing checks.
(If you’re at a for-profit bank, you really should consider a local credit union like BECU or Salal…)
The SPD 9-1-1 Call Center has 15-19 workers at each of 3 shifts. Half the room is call takers and the other half is radio dispatchers. When a call comes in, if it is appropriate, it is transferred to Seattle Fire Dept/Medic One, WA State Patrol, or another police agency. The call taker may get a translator on the line if one is needed. Events appropriate for the Police are triaged by the call taker (they ask you questions) and pass it on to the radio dispatchers.
Radio dispatchers see the typed events on their computer screens. They prioritize the events and assign them to officers. Events are prioritized in this order:
Even though personal information is taken by the call taker, and it is stored in the database, you may request anonymity. This may help if you are complaining about a neighbor and don’t want to make things worse between you.
After a radio dispatcher prioritizes the event, it is assigned to an officer in the precinct, sector and district where it occurred. If it is a serious emergency and all officers there are busy, it can be assigned to one in a different district, sector, or even precinct. Less serious events may have to wait for an officer if the officers in the district happens to be busy. The Call Center will update you about every hour if there is a long wait. The Radio dispatchers also manage radio traffic and record all updates from the assigned officers.
The Call Center handles both 9-1-1 and non-emergency calls. If you call 9-1-1 and say it is not an emergency, they will still take the call. If you call the non-emergency line (206-625-5011) they will take your call, but 9-1-1 calls take precedence.
Remember, the Police encourage us to call 9-1-1 if we see suspicious activity. Also, please report all crimes. The more the police know about what’s going on in the neighborhood, the better they can tune their activities to help. Property crimes under $500 can be called in, or you can self-report on-line here.
This month’s guest speaker at the North Precinct Advisory Council was a supervisor from the 9-1-1 Call Center. Here are some tips for when you call 9-1-1
Terrie Johnston, our Crime Prevention Coordinator, reported at the North Precinct Advisory Council that though burglaries are down in general in the North Precinct, they are up in Lincoln Sector, the North Precinct sector Pinehurst is in. Last October there were 18 burglaries. This October there were 55. Twenty of the 55 were non-forced entry, meaning entry was from an unlocked door or window. Please help reduce your chances of being burglarized by locking your doors and windows.
Here is a map of the North Precinct sectors. Lincoln Sector is on the right, dark purple, labeled L1, L2 and L3.
It had been a while since I had heard anything about the Jackson Park perimeter trail project, but apparently the design team has been selected. Next week there will be a public meeting with proposed designs.
Hey, Jackson Park Trail folks, keep us in the loop, okay?
