One of the biggest goals for East Precinct officials Tuesday night is to register other Capitol Hill businesses for the city`s updated transgression program. Programs, sometimes controversial, place police officers in a substitute position, so that participating business owners should not be available for the resulting infringement process. Constable Street also expressed his own frustration when he answered a few calls. It was caught between a property owner or business manager who must be removed or discouraged from returning home and an angry citizen who insulted himself against „the police who harass the homeless”. He called on the Community to agree on a uniform definition of tolerable and acceptable behaviour. The best way to discourage this is to call the police, the participants heard, whenever the criminal behavior is discovered. Officer Street is prepared to meet with the owners and residents of Fremont regarding any chronic criminal activity. Inspector Manning, in the Outreach section of the Community, is pleased to hold „trade show interviews” with groups of neighbours who want to learn about SPD resources and participate in group events to better inform the public about the SPD. Meanwhile, some merchants complain that the new transgression program requires the logistical pain of having an officer present when the program membership papers are completed and others have established the necessary signs of the program without actually registering.
The SPD hopes to help make Capitol Hill better on the agenda Tuesday night. „Sometimes our brains are foggy,” Sundin said of some of the people the SPD deals with in transgressive calls. „It makes things easier to understand.” „I think it`s really important that companies understand what they can and can`t do, because the rules for offenses have changed,” says Paul Dwoskin of Broadway Video and chairman of the „Clean safe committee” of local merchants about Tuesday night`s meeting. „It`s also a great way to give a face to the new district commander and other police officers.” BOTHELL, Wash. „An unknown woman, seen in a video fighting with an officer, was arrested at a grocery store for a criminal offence without violating the national mask warrant,” Bothell police said in response to a viral video that sparked strong reactions on social media. Companies with existing trespass authorization forms must complete the revised form for the transgression agreement and authorization and publish the new SPD entry mark before warnings can be issued. These forms are available in hard copies and will be available from the Ballard Chamber of Commerce or through the Northern District under NPrecinctTrespassProgram@seattle.gov. Seattle police have changed the way they handle offenses.
Doing business on Capitol Hill in the heart of the big city poses some unique challenges in dealing with people of all stripes and types. With an updated transgression program and the city`s new crisis center, available as new resources, Hill`s business owners will meet Tuesday night to learn more about the programs, services and tools developed to help businesses serve their customers in the safest environment.
