Perhaps The Herald can shed some light on why the Everett Police refuse to respond to criminal acts of cars being broken into at the park in North Everett where the new animal shelter resides.
On Sunday, a citizen caught a male breaking into a car in the first parking lot at Langus Riverfront Park. He called 911, gave the details, but Everett PD never responded.
The car’s owner finally arrived and also called 911, but no response!
All in all, I was in the area right after the first call to 911 and after two hours — no police!
I think it’s criminal that our police refuse to respond to these weekly acts in our parks. They send the signal that auto thieves can smash and grab all day long in Everett or anywhere without fear of being caught — because our police are just too lazy to respond and do the paperwork!
The city of Everett needs to put cameras up in Langus Riverfront Park to reduce this activity.
Everett PD needs a chief of police who responds to its citizens in need and/or mandates a higher level of response from its officers and the dispatch call center needs to put the park in its computer system — as they can’t seem to locate it.
