Focus groups forming

We received the following note this month from Jennifer Burbridge and are passing it along. Since we don’t hold meetings over the summer months, please get in touch with Puao directly if you and/or members of your neighborhood are interested.

Hello all,

Some of you may have received this email from Puao (the new Micro-Community Policing Plan Research Analyst for the SW Precinct), regarding focus groups in each of your communities. She is hoping to get feedback from as many community members as possible regarding crime and safety concerns to continue to inform the Micro-Community Policing Plans!

Many of you have been involved with these focus groups in the past; they typically last about 45 minutes to an hour and are a semi-structured conversation about crime and safety concerns, thoughts on the Seattle Police Department and suggested improvements in your unique neighborhoods.

Puao would very much appreciate your assistance in scheduling these focus groups, ideally during already established and scheduled community meetings- to hopefully ensure maximum participation. Please let her know when you think would be best to schedule these discussions.

Thank you for your time and your ongoing commitment to the Micro-Community Policing Plan project!

Let me and/or her know if you have any questions!

Good morning!

My name is Puao Savusa and I am the new Research Analyst at the Southwest Precinct, I will be replacing Joseph Singer (Joey), the previous RA who recently graduated, and I have also received the opportunity to work more closely with Jennifer Burbridge (Jen) who is the current crime prevention coordinator also at the SW precinct. In the coming weeks, I will be conducting focus groups and am reaching out to you to see if I could utilize community meetings in order to do so, and to discuss crime and safety concerns. Please let me know what your thoughts are on this and if you’d like to move forward with this, I’d love to discuss the details if this sounds like a good idea. Thank you!

I hope to hear from you soon.



Puao Savusa, Research Analyst
