(We Need Volunteers)

Safe Streets:  Please Volunteer

Please help us keep the Safe Streets Information updated. We are currentlu updating the Safe Street Rosters. New rosters will be distributed within the next few weeks.

We are in the process of updating a functional and useful Safe Streets Program. It depends entirely on your participation. If we can establish a list of people needing help or willing to help we will be successful in setting up a process to help keep our neighborhood safe.

If you would like to participate in the Safe Streets Program, please provide your phone number, and email address on the 2021 Dues Notice Return Slip and your name will be added to the Safe Streets Roster. This roster will only be distributed to the Safe Streets Coordinator on your street who will provide copies to each resident.

If you   Do Not wish to participate just say no or leave the space blank on the 2021 Dues notice and we will remove your information from the Safe Streets Roster.  You will not be informed of any future changes, problems, updates, etc.

One question potential volunteers and participants have asked is: What responsibilities does the Safe Streets Coordinator have?  Answer:   Get updated contact info and provide that info to Jim. If problems are reported, the street's captain is asked to please contact the street representatives and initiate the phone tree to inform neighbors of concerns. We also have the option of sending text messages. Safe Streets can also be used in an emergency as needed.

It is suggested that if issues are brought to attention of Street Coordinator concerning problems with neighbor behaviors/common complaints, etc, Safe Streets Coordinator will take your complaint but they are not expected mediate these issues. Rather, they are encouraged to contact the CPHA President to contact the resident. This is the preferred option to maintain a positive role for SS Coordinator, instead of unwittingly placing our volunteers into an enforcement role.

We also would like to note that no major problems have been identified recently. While we have not had any major problems, we will remind everyone that the Steilacoom Police Chief recommends using reasonable precautions,such as keep things locked (cars, homes). We do have a safe community but from time to time, there is a need for everyone to be increase their vigilance. If you observe suspicious activities, call the Steilacoom Police Department's non-emergency phone number and they will dispatch an officer to investigate. (253-798-4721). (This number is also published each month in the "Around Town" newsletter that comes with your utility bill).It is also posted several places on the CPHA Website Then email the Safe Streets Coordinator to let everyone else know that "something" is going on. We have also added an Emergency Contacts Page to the CPHA Website An informed community is a safe community.

Please help compiling a Safe Streets Master List of residents living in Cormorant Passage.

Please notify us of changes to residents, phone numbers, or emails addresses when they occur so we can keep the Master List Updated. Safe Street Coordinator will make the changes, print and distribute them to the Block Coordinators.

Email us for information:   Webmaster  As information becomes available we will provide each Division 1, 2 & 3 Block Representative an updated list of his or her close neighbors with their phone numbers and email addresses. Residents are not required to provided this information, however you will you will not be informed of any changes, problems, updates, etc. I can't do it alone I need your help to keep the rosters updated.

An Informed Community is a safe community

If you see something say something.
