In partnership with a few neighborhood groups, and the Seattle Parks Department- the Seattle Police Department is offering virtual Women’s Personal Safety Classes!

Learn proactive tips and step you can take to enhance your personal safety taught by female Seattle Police officers and employees.

Our class goals:

  • Know the important role your instincts and gut reactions play
  • Discover potentially dangerous situations and how to avoid them
  • Learn how to make a safety plan
  • Decrease the odds of becoming a victim

About the class:

  • This is a facilitated discussion and lecture about crime prevention and safety.
  • This is not a self-defense class.
  • This class is open to women of all ages and most appropriate for young women who are at least 14 years of age or older. For that reason, children should not attend.

If you are unable to attend either of these scheduled classes, don’t worry! We are working on scheduling many more (at varying days/times) in the coming weeks/months.


2020 Fauntleroy Community Survey

date posted: 02 Nov 2020

Every two years, the Fauntleroy Community Association conducts a survey of over 3000 residents in Fauntleroy. We ask questions about current issues affecting the Fauntleroy community, West Seattle, and Seattle as a whole. This allows us to understand what is important to our community members and helps the board set priorities.

The FCA exists to consider and act on concerns affecting the quality of life and character of the Fauntleroy community. Examples of issues and projects we have engaged in include public safety, the ferry, zoning and parking. We also sponsor or co-sponsor events such as the Fall Festival, the Fauntleroy Food Fest, the business triangle planter boxes and this year’s Halloween pumpkin hunt.

Take the Survey Your responses to this survey will be treated as anonymous and the survey results will be summarized and available for public review in early 2021.


Car Prowl Increase and Prevention Strategies

date posted: 27 Oct 2020 by: Jennifer Danner

Passed to us from the Southwest Precinct

The SW Precinct has recently seen an increase in car prowl incidents in our William 2 (W2) patrol beat area, specifically on and around Beach Drive SW. These incidents are mostly occurring in the night time hours.

Here is the link to our Patrol Beat/Sector map- https://www.seattle.gov/Documents/Departments/police/Precincts/maps/Southwest_Precinct.pdf

In order to address this increase, we would like to remind our community about the following car prowl prevention strategies:

• Check vehicle regularly (especially important during COVID times)

• Never leave valuables in plain view

• Hide chargers and accessories that indicate an electronic device may be in the vehicle

• Remove garage door openers, key cards and other keys from the vehicle

• If possible, park vehicle in a busy, locked, monitored and/or well-lit area

• Install anti-theft devices

• If possible, activate alarm

pumpkin patch

In an effort to bring some fun to the dwindling daylight, throughout the week of October 26-30, The Fauntleroy Community Association is sponsoring a community pumpkin hunt. If you search around the Endolyne/Fauntleroy area, you may find a white pumpkin – or even a beautiful blown glass pumpkin – with a note attached. Some even include a gift certificate for use at our local merchants, compliments of the FCA board members.

We hope you’ll participate. We encourage you to take your pumpkin home with you, then take a picture of yourself with your pumpkin, and post it to your Facebook page, with #FCApumpkins

Enjoy!

There are two surveys taking place right now, each is open until July 31st. It is important that the city hear your voice. Tell them what you need.

Reconnect West Seattle Survey:

This survey is for everyone who lives or works in West Seattle.

Neighborhood Prioritications Process Ballots: for Southwest Seattle, Georgetown, SODO and South Park.

The ballots include lists of potential projects that were generated from ideas we have received from community, along with some of our own ideas, and projects from existing transportation and neighborhood plans. While a much larger mix of projects remain on our radar, we recognize the need for immediate action. Therefore, the lists include projects that can be completed quickly and cost less than $100,000.
