Neighborhood Safety

The Burien Police Community Crime Prevention Unit offers crime prevention tips and strategies to residents, creating a safer community for businesses and residents alike. We are available to make special presentations on a variety of topics, including personal safety, fraud prevention, preventing identity theft, and child safety. We can also tailor a presentation to meet the needs of your community group or organization.

Officers can also come out to your residence or business to provide a free security survey using methods from Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED).

Contact the City of Burien Crime Prevention Unit at (206) 477-2253 to schedule your crime prevention event or service.

Watch Sgt. Henry McLaughlin give important crime prevention tips.
