Steilacoom Historical School District Families:
At approximately 7:50 am this morning (12/14), while walking to the bus stop at Palisade and McDonald, a young child was approached by a female with short black hair driving a small white SUV. The female asked the child if they “needed a ride”, that they “looked cold”, and that she knew their mother. The child did not get into the car, went straight to the bus stop and immediately called their parents.
The DuPont Police Department and City are investigating the situation and are in coordination with the Steilacoom School District. Neighboring law enforcement agencies have been notified. If you have any information please call the DuPont Police Department at 253-964-7060. If you see the driver, please call 911. The child is safe and did the right thing. Remind your children to stay safe and to not get into cars with strangers.
Pierce County Assessor:
Representatives of the Pierce County Assessor’s office have been and will be in Town over the next several weeks. The Assessor’s office attempts to physically review every parcel in the County at least once every six years to confirm the information that is in the County’s parcel system.
The Town hired a salvage company to refloat the derelict vessel that sank at our floating dock on Wednesday, December 5th. The company refloated the 32 foot vessel on Sunday the 9th. Town crews, assisted by a commercial towing company, removed the vessel from the water and relocated to the Public Works yard. We continue to work with the owner’s insurance company to recover our expenses related to this incident.
If you observe suspicious activity, please contact Public Safety – non-emergency number – (253) 798-4721 as soon as possible. To anonymously report suspicious activity please email the Department at firstname.lastname@example.org
