Weekly Shilshole Crime Stats

Published by under Liveaboard Topics

Crime stats for Shilshole Bay Marina as reported by Port of Seattle Police Officer Shin via the Monday night VMan Net.

11/23/21-11/29/21
23 Area checks*
1- DUI with arrest near R&S docks.
1- Hit & Run
1- Theft from a boat (today). Unfortunately not much info yet as far as what was stolen and from which dock.
26 total calls

Officer Shin once again mentioned that with the upcoming holiday season we should all continue to keep our eyes open and refrain from leaving packages in our cars. Historically the holidays tend to bring an increase in activity. She said she has noticed quite a few cars with shiny new packages inside while driving around our lot.

Keeping your car empty is the best option but if that’s not possible, at least try to hide your items.

*Area checks are when officers self dispatch to an area to make sure nothing is going on and provide a presence. Be sure to join in the VMan net on Monday nights at 8pm VHF channel 71. The Port of Seattle Police are once again participating in the net and willing to answer questions. Tenants are encouraged to stay vigilant & report ANY suspicious activity to the Port of Seattle Police by calling 911 and asking for the Port Of Seattle Police.

Crime stats from Port of Seattle Police for Shilshole Marina via Officer Shin on the Monday night VMan Net. Glad to report very few incidents this week. Maybe the rough weather is keeping EVERYONE inside :-).

11/16/21-11/22/21
23 Area checks*
1- Medical call
1- Boating collision – Boating accident with a moored boat at G63. Parties exchanged information and no estimated damage given.
1- Suspicious person – A Suspicious person was possibly observed last night near C76. Reporting party saw flashing light from their boat. Officers checked the area and did not observe any suspicious activity. The motion sensor light was most likely triggered by a seal we saw in the area.

Our Boaters Advocate..RBAW

We have an organization here in Washington that was formed in 1957 to support and advocate for the recreational boating community:  RBAW-Recreational Boating Association of Washington.  They first acquired Sucia Island for boaters to prevent it from being commercially developed and they recently helped acquire Lakebay Marina (at Penrose Pt. State Park in South Sound).  They have been instrumental in keeping boater registration fees and taxes affordable.

As you know, the City of Seattle has dramatically cut the Police force and with it, the Harbor Patrol.  These are the officers that are usually first on the scene in the case of a fire or sinking.  Please check out the RBAW site for more details and how you can help.  (a link to RBAW can always be found on the right side of this Blog).
