We are sharing the following letter addressing the alarming amount of home and car break-ins reported around the city. We encourage all concerned citizens to attend this meeting. -Ed
Dear Norkirk Neighborhood,
Regarding: reported neighborhood concerns about recent break-ins in the Norkirk Neighborhood.
The Kirkland City Manager’s Office is inviting you to a meeting with the Police Department on Tuesday, July 19 at City Hall in the Peter Kirk Room (south entrance to City Hall) from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. (or until the last person leaves) to answer questions and hear concerns regarding break-ins in the Norkirk Neighborhood. We will have crime data maps for burglary, thefts and motor vehicle prowls – for both the Norkirk Neighborhood and the entire City (so people can compare Citywide data with your neighborhood – past and present).
The following Police Department Officials will be at the meeting to answer your questions:
*Neighborhood Resource Officer Weber
*District officer (if call volume allows)
*Captain Hamilton or Captain Ursino
*The Chief of Police, Cherie Harris (until she is needed at the City Council meeting)
This time/date coincides with the City Council meeting on July 19th so that neighbors who want to speak at the Council meeting (under “Items for the Audience”) can do both.
Please pass this invitation along to any of your neighbors. All are welcome.
For additional questions, contact Kari Page, Neighborhood Outreach Coordinator, KPage@kirklandwa.gov or call 425-587-3011.
