Our special guest will be Mary Perry, the new Director of Transparency and Privacy, from SPD!
If you attended or read about our January West Seattle Block Watch Captains’ Network meeting, you know that we briefly discussed our thoughts on the release of our names last fall. Some of us have expressed surprise, concern, worry or were puzzled that this even happened.
Most importantly, many of us feel that we want more information to better understand how the trade-off between privacy and Seattle Police Department transparency might affect us as Block Watch Captains, and our Block Watch groups, going forward.
This is an opportunity for us to hear from Mary Perry — how she views these issues, how similar instances in the future may be handled, and to learn more about her new role.
SW Precinct Commander, Captain Pierre Davis, will also join us!
