The East Precinct Advisor Council, a group that facilitates communication and meetings with Seattle Police representatives and the communities of Central Seattle including Capitol Hill and the Central District, are asking area residents and business owners to add their opinions to a set of surveys regarding public safety and “prevention programs” —
The Public Safety Survey conducted by Seattle University is used to identify your neighborhoods priorities in the Micro Community Policing Plans (MCPP). The Seattle Police Department uses the MCPP to help set their priorities. This is your chance to weigh in. There is only two weeks left. Please visit http://PublicSafetySurvey.org to participate, 11 languages are supported.
The second survey, the Community Prevention and Wellness Initiative helps Healthy Youth Central Area Network (HYCAN) to select prevention programs to strengthen communities and empower youth. This survey directly affects funding for programs at both Washington Middle School and Garfield High School. Time is also short for this survey.
HYCAN strives to increase community strengths through prevention and intervention strategies that support youth in making healthy life choices.
Please complete and submit both surveys, and also, please forward to your neighbors.
