Drug Take Back Day is Saturday, October 28th, 10 AM – 2 PM!

The following announcement came to us via Crime Prevention Coordinator, Jennifer Burbridge.

The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day addresses a crucial public safety and public health issue. According to the 2015 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 6.4 million Americans abused controlled prescription drugs. The study shows that a majority of abused prescription drugs were obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet.

The DEA’s Take Back Day events provide an opportunity for Americans to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths. The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and anonymous means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse and medications.

The SW Precinct’s DEA Drug Take Back Day will be on October 28th from 10am until 2pm- at the SW Precinct (2300 SW Webster).

Let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

You can reach Jennifer at Jennifer.Burbridge@seattle.gov, or (206) 256-6820. As well, you can usually find her at our WSBWCN monthly meetings!

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.

Best,

Puao

Happy summer! Don’t miss the final meeting before our Summer Hiatus!

Join us on Tuesday, June 27th to learn about the Community Service Officer (CSO) program, and give your feedback!

In the 2017-18 budget, City Council set aside funding to re-implement the Community Service Officer program in 2018. Our guest speaker will be Angela Socci from the Finance and Planning Section of the Seattle Police Department. She’ll talk about the plans for reinventing the CSO program. They are in the early stages of the program development process, so we have an opportunity to offer feedback. How would you like to see the new program take shape?

As well, we’ll have updates from Captain Pierre Davis about crimes and issues they are currently seeing in the SW Precinct. Jennifer Burbridge, our new Crime Prevention Coordinator, will also be there.  Update, 6/27: Jennifer is unable to be there this evening.

Need materials for Night Out? This is our final meeting before our notorious Summer Hiatus — as we do not meet in July or August — so don’t forget to pick up any informational materials that you’d like to give your neighbors at Night Out events. Usually, you can catch us to pick up materials at the local summer festivals. Unfortunately, we are currently “waitlisted” for space in the Community Tent at West Seattle SummerFest in July. Night Out is on Tuesday, August 1st this year and Delridge Day takes place later in the month.

Meeting schedule (Come early, stay late!)

Tuesday, June 27th, 2017, 6:30-8 PM

At the SW Police Precinct, 2300 SW Webster Street (at Delridge Ave SW, next to Home Depot)

7:15-8:00              Angela Socci: Reinventing the CSO program.
