City of Tacoma residents can get a free security assessment as part of a new effort by city government.
The residential security survey assessments are part of the city-wide Safe and Clean efforts. The effort, launched last year, aims to reduce crime and clean up the neighborhoods throughout Tacoma.
As part of the initiative, a Defensible Space Team was created. Team members will be available to evaluate residents’ homes for security, a city announcement stated. They can recommend additional security measures and changes to the physical environment to help enhance security and reduce the attractiveness to burglars.
