Learn to prevent burglaries at Lynnwood fair

LYNNWOOD -- Police plan an burglary prevention fair on Saturday in Lynnwood.
Property crime detectives, crime-prevention experts and safety-equipment companies will be available to answer questions and share tips, Lynnwood police spokeswoman Shannon Sessions said.
The fair was organized by the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office, in addition to police in Lynnwood, Edmonds and Mountlake Terrace.
"With the upswing in burglaries, this is a regional issue," Sessions said. "It's something that all of our agencies have been dealing with pretty heavily."
The open-house-style fair will focus on ways to protect your home, Sessions said. Home owners, apartment tenants and managers and business people are encouraged to attend, as is the general public.
Detectives also will share the latest on burglary trends.
"We want to avoid the crimes-of-opportunity kind of scenario with criminals," Sessions said. "The more you do to protect yourself and your home from burglars or crime, the less likely you'll be a victim."
The fair is planned from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at Meadowdale High School, 6002 168th St. SW, Lynnwood.
