Helpful Information Follow-Up From Deputy Zac Reimer

Deputy Zac Reimer

Hello all,

Attached is the information packet that I went over at the meeting.  Below I have listed some links, services, information, and contact information. (See bottom of this post to download in Word or PDF)

Vacation House Checks

Available through the Sheriff’s office is the vacation house check request.  The Sheriff’s Office has volunteers that provide the service of check on your home when you are on vacation.  Please use this link http://www.whatcomcounty.us/sheriff/pdf/vacation-housecheck.pdf

Online Crime Reporting

Citizens can now report crimes to the Sheriff’s Office online.  I would like to make sure and make this available to the public.  Even though I am a very big advocate for people calling 911 right away as soon as they suspect a crime has occurred, is occurring, or is about to occur, there is still a percentage of the population that will still not call.  This occurs because there is still that belief that it is “not a big deal”.   With online reporting it helps some people with making that first step to report the incident.  The online reporting system will walk you through the reporting system and will prompt you if you need to call 911.  The link for online reporting is https://www.whatcomcounty.us/reportcrime/

House/Business Checks

If anyone would like me to come to their residence or business and conduct a house check for tips and advice on how to secure your property please contact me.  I would be happy to meet with you to discuss current crime trends and to help you secure your home or business and make your property a “hard target” for criminal activity.

Block Watch Program

If you are interested in starting a block watch program or getting it up and going again please contact me.  I will meet with you and get you set up on the program so you can get the block watch program started for your neighborhood.  If you already have a block watch program and it has taken a back seat I will work with you and your neighborhood to get it back up and running smoothly.
