Vashon Island's Crime Problem


I've put together a community meeting on October 18 at 6pm at McMurray School to discuss the recent rash of burglaries and thefts that have been taking place on Vashon Island. This includes an armed home invasion that took place in August. The meeting will feature a community policing spokesman from the King County Sheriff's Department followed by a questions and answer session.

I'm hoping the meeting will be the begining of a dialog between Vashon residents about what's at the root of the problem and what we can do about it. All are welcome. Many islanders suspect that an increase in hard drug use on the island including a METH problem have fueled the increase in crime.
