Experts to take questions at crime prevention forum

A group of subject experts, including police detectives and a county prosecutor, will speak and take questions at a crime prevention forum on Wednesday, Oct. 23, 6-8:30 p.m., at the Bellevue Library, 1111 110th Avenue N.E.

Police Chief Linda Pillo will speak, along with the following experts:

  • Phone/internet/Fraud - Detective James Brack, Bellevue Police;
  • Burglary/car prowl and car theft - Detective Richard Chinn, Bellevue Police;
  • Drug abuse and prevention - Tina Morales, Youth Eastside Services;
  • Gang Awareness and prevention - Detective Jeff Christiansen, Bellevue Police;
  • Top-priority traffic laws - Lieutenant Marcia Harnden, Bellevue Police;
  • Consequences of committing crimes for juveniles - Jimmy Hung, King County Senior Deputy Prosecutor; and

The second half of the program will be devoted to facilitated group discussions on how to protect yourself and avoid being a victim of crime. In addition, there will be resource information available.

The event is sponsored by the Bellevue Police Department, Bellevue Diversity Program and the King County Library System's "Bellevue Gets to Know its Neighbor" series.
