You’re invited to participate in a focus group about the micro-community policing plans!
At our June meeting, Jennifer Burbridge announced that she wants to conduct a focus group with West Seattle Block Watch Captains on this topic. Following is some additional information that she provided.
Hello everyone! My name is Jennifer Burbridge and I am a Seattle University Graduate Research Assistant, stationed at the South West Precinct of the Seattle Police Department. Part of what I am tasked to do as a graduate research assistant with Seattle University is hold focus groups with different community groups. These focus groups would center around the group’s perception of the micro-community policing plans for their areas, their general thoughts on crime in their communities and their feelings about how well the police are addressing their concerns. The goal for these focus groups is to have around 10-15 people present and hold a productive discussion for about 1 hour. On Tuesday July 28th, I will be holding a focus group with the Block Watch Captains of West Seattle from 6:30-7:30 pm in the South West Precinct community meeting room! This is an opportunity to have your voice heard and to have a great conversation about whats going on in your communities! I hope to see you there!
As, noted, the focus group will be held in the community meeting room (same room where we hold the West Seattle Block Watch Captains’ Network meetings) at the SW Police Precinct, 2300 SW Webster Street (next to Home Depot).
FYI, you can find the micro-community policing plans at www.seattle.gov/police/mcpp/.
Added, 7/16/15: If you can’t make the meeting on July 28th, note that Jennifer has now scheduled additional neighborhood-specific meetings; here are more details. Also, wanted to mention that you need not be a BW Captain to attend the meeting on the 28th. As with our monthly meetings, everyone who is interested in BW is welcome.
