New Crime Prevention Coordinator for North Precinct

The Laurelhurst Blog has a post up about the Seattle Police Department’s new crime prevention coordinator (CPC) for the North Precinct, Terri Johnston.

Read the post here.

Previous to Terri, the North Precinct (Ballard to Lake Washington) was served by two CPCs, one of whom was Diane Horswill, who recently retired.

UPDATE: The Pinehurst Seattle blog also has a post up about the crime prevention coordinator positions, including the dates of a few SPD-related events (National Night Out, for example).

The worrisome element that both posts mention is that the CPC positions are funded by a grant that runs out at the end of 2011. After the grant runs out, the program will be eliminated.
