SPD Safe Communities Meeting next Wednesday

When:  Wednesday, October 10 from 7pm to 9 pm

Where: North Seattle Community College (  9600 College Way North )
( we will update later with the exact building / room )

Here are the questions SPD is looking for answers to:

  • What is your top concern about crime and public safety in your community?

  • What can be done together to create a safer community?

  • What is going well with the relationship between your community and SPD?

  • What needs to improve?

  • What steps can we take to keep you engaged in building and creating a safer community?

An excerpt from the Safe Communities website: 

Safe Communities
Public safety is a high priority for the people of Seattle. The Seattle Police Department is addressing the recent wave of violence with emphasis patrols and other actions specific to each precinct. But it will take more than law enforcement alone to build communities that are safe. It’s time to look at the roots of violence and address longstanding neighborhood concerns. That’s why the Mayor’s Office and the Seattle Police Department are working together on the Safe Communities Outreach Mission. Part of the SPD 20/20 Plan, Safe Communities seeks to ensure the City is meeting our goal of reducing crime and creating the safest possible neighborhoods. We will do that by bringing residents and officers together in living rooms, cafes, barber shops and community centers across Seattle to develop a list of priorities to address community concerns. Those priorities will then guide the actions the City, SPD, and the neighborhoods will take together to protect public safety. We are committed to building safe communities. We’re looking forward to hearing your ideas and developing an action plan with you.
