We will listen, identify solutions, and take action.” Representatives from the Seattle Police Department South Precinct as well as elected officials and other community leaders will be there.

This meeting is co-hosted by the Southeast Seattle Crime Prevention Council. All are invited.

Responses wanted for public safety survey

The City of Seattle is currently conducting an online survey on the topics of public safety and the Seattle Police Department, with the help of graduate students from the University of Washington’s Evans School of Public Affairs. The project will gather Seattleites’ views about public safety concerns in their own neighborhoods and on public transportation. The resulting data will be used to help police and city officials improve police services.

The survey is anonymous and takes about 15 minutes to complete. You can access it here.
