Last Thursday, July 16th, we held a joint African American Advisory Council and East Precinct Crime Prevention Coalition meeting at Langston Hughes Cultural Arts Center.
Robert Hood, Chief of the Public and Community Safety Division of the Seattle City Attorney’s Office, Tienney Milnor, East Precinct City Attorney Liaison, and East Precinct Captain Paul McDonagh presented information related to the Drug Market Initiative (DMI).
A new approach to reducing street level drug dealing in our community, DMI is a collaborative effort between the Seattle Police Department, the Seattle City Attorney’s Office and the community.
As the community’s participation is a critical component of DMI, attendees gathered in small groups to discuss ideas that would support the effectiveness and success of the DMI initiative, resulting in outstanding strategies.
Therefore, we are are holding a follow-up meeting to continue to develop these strategies and identify methods of actual implementation:
