NE Seattle Neighborhoods Crime And Safety Focus Groups Tonight At NE Library

The Seattle Police Department is holding a special Northeast Seattle crime and safety focus groups meeting called, "Micro-Community Policing Meeting," tonight from 6-7pm at the NE Library (6801 38th Avenue N.E). 

The meeting will address crime and safety concerns along with suggested improvements for each of Seattle's neighborhoods

The information says:
Crime, Safety, & Police Legitimacy
The Micro-Community Policing Plan is an initiative SPD is taking to address each specific neighborhood. The idea is each neighborhood is unique therefore, the concerns will need to be addressed differently. The plans take a three prong approach that brings community engagement, crime data and police services together to get direct feedback on perceptions of crime and public safety.  
In addition, as part of the process evaluation of the Seattle Police Department’s implementation of the Micro-Community Policing Plans, Seattle University is looking for community members to participate in an hour-long discussion regarding community perceptions of crime, safety, and police legitimacy, as well as knowledge of and satisfaction with the MCPP. Information gleaned from these focus groups will help to inform the respective neighborhood’s MCPP so come share your concerns and suggestions. Participants feel comfortable expressing any opinions you may have, the Seattle Police Department will not be present during these discussions.
