Tonight at North Seattle Community College there will be a Safe Communities meeting for residents of the North Precinct to talk about ways to improve safety in our part of the city. Safe Communities is a partnership between the Mayor’s Office and the Seattle Police Department to get residents, police officers, and city departments together for small-group conversations about how to address safety concerns. The priorities highlighted in the meetings will then be used to guide the actions the city, SPD and neighborhoods will take together to protect public safety, according to Aaron Pickus from the Mayor’s Office. “This won’t be a town hall–just like the Youth and Families Initiative meetings, there will be facilitated conversations in small groups, and each small group will choose its own top priorities,” Pickus tells us.
