There have been a number of inquiries regarding the number of Pierce County Sheriffs seen around CV in the last week. I was able to speak with a PCS officer in CV1 today.
He said that they are stepping up patrols in the Greenwater area due to an increased number of transients seen in the vicinity of the FS 70 road. With the transients come drug activity and with drug activity comes petty theft and other criminal activity.
We are asked to report any suspicious activity, missing items (small tools, camping equipment, etc.) or illegal shooting. You can make a non-emergency online report rather than contacting the PCS directly. This online reporting might not be responded to by an officer, but all reports are reviewed by a sergeant and tracked to indicate increases in crime in a community and trigger increased PCS attention.
