In times like these, with a souring economy and loss of jobs, gang activity often starts to escalate. That’s one reason that the Burien Police Department is holding a special Gang Awareness Seminar on Thursday Nov. 13th, from 6-9pm at the Criminal Justice Training Center.

WHAT: Gang Awareness Seminar – Open to the Public

WHEN: Thursday, Nov. 13th from 6:00pm to 9:00pm

WHERE: Washington State Criminal Justice Center (Police Academy), located at 19010 1st Avenue South

Guest Speaker is Detective Joe Gagliardi.

Detective Gagliardi is a gang detective for the Burien Police Department. He is recognized as an expert in gang activity, providing regional training at the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Center and for the King County Sheriff’s Office.

His presentation will give you an overview of gang activities, gang structure and active gangs in the South King County area.  He will be able to answer your questions about community safety and how to address gang activity in your neighborhood.

If you have kids, you need to be at this seminar. Gangs are becoming prevalent in our communities and this information will help you keep your kids out of the growing Gang culture.

For additional info, please call Sgt. McLauchlan at 206-296-3333.

    I live in Seattle on Beacon Hill and I am really aware of the gang issues around the area. I have been going to Burien since I was a kid. Now 51 and retired I have formed neighborhood walking programs at night to observe and report what is going on. I know that KCPD is cutting back on enforcement due to budget constraints. Not sure weather to post this here since I just joined up. I am open to helping anyone start any kind of walking program in the neighborhoods there. I am also the president of a 2nd amendment group here in Seattle but this is completely separate. This is about community involvement I still consider Burien part of my community, I am former military police and i will try to make it to this meeting.
