As you probably know, recent discussions and forums have focused on the relationship between Seattle Police and the community. A group of youth decided it was time they were involved in that conversation. On January 12th, 2010 at the Garfield Teen Life Center, in partnership with the Seattle Department of Parks and Recreation, Seattle Police Department, Students Against Violence Everywhere, and the Seattle Youth Commission, the group hosted “Building Bridges,” a forum to discuss youth and police relations.
This Thursday’s East Precinct Crime Prevention meeting, beginning at 6 PM, will feature Garfield High School Senior Emerson North, of Students Against Violence Everywhere, who will report to us about the event. You won’t want to miss this critical youth perspective.
Also on the agenda is an exercise to get your feedback on topics you would like our future meetings to focus on.
Please note that the meeting will be held at Seattle University’s Chardin Hall; located at 1020 East Jefferson room 142. Enter the campus off of 11the and Jefferson, park in the lot in front of the building. Go through the main doors and turn right, room 142 is down the hall on the right.
*****IMPORTANT: We may need to cancel due to the impending forecasted snow. Please stay tuned for updates via this posting.*****
