    Chief O’Toole will also be talking *in person* tonight at the Central Ballard Residents’ Association meeting, 7PM in Conference Room A (first floor) at Swedish Hospital Ballard:

    The folks from the Central Ballard Residents Association wanted to remind locals that this month’s meeting is Wednesday, February 17, at 7 p.m. in Conference Room A on the first floor of Ballard Swedish Hospital (5330 Tallman Ave).

    The meeting has been rescheduled from the usual time due to the availability of Police Chief Kathleen O’Toole.

    “Next week’s meeting is a special opportunity to meet the Chief, learn about issues concerning the Ballard area and ask questions,” says CBRA Membership Coordinator Rebecca Todd.

    All are welcome, and no registration is required for the event.

    Chief O’Toole responded on Nextdoor, noting that most of the people commenting on Nextdoor requested that SPD focus their efforts on nuisance property crime, the unsightliness of people camping and living in RVs and the slow response time to 911 calls regarding someone suspiciously walking down the sidewalk or parking in their neighborhood.

    Meanwhile, in the real world, twenty people were killed in traffic fatalities on Seattle streets last year and 130 were seriously injured. I would strongly urge the SPD to focus their efforts and resources on public safety and make travelling around Seattle safer. Traffic enforcement would be a godsend.

    I agree. To make the roads safer they should impound (and crush) any vehicles not safe for the roads or that have things loosely tied to the roof. Also vehicles should be impounded if the owners don’t have insurance to cover any damage if they are in an accident.
