If you missed the June membership meeting, we heard from Katelyn Yep, a Crime Prevention Officer for the North Precinct of Seattle.

Here are a few resources and highlights from the presentation:

  • Crime prevention officers will help businesses through many different resources available to them to make sure they, their workers, and their customers can be safe. This includes resources not offered by the Seattle Police Department (SPD) specifically
  • It is important to the SPD that when you are aware of a crime in progress, you call 9-1-1, and state whether it is an emergency or a non-emergency. This data goes towards the SPD developing future strategies of crime prevention
  • Seattle businesses can complete a criminal trespassing partnership form with the SPD. To find out how to complete this process, click this link.
  • To learn more about the resources crime prevention officers can off you, contact Katelyn Yep at yep@seattle.gov.

The SRA’s Skylar Schmitt and Linda Di Lello Morton led a conversation on the Seattle Hospitality for Progress (SHP) PAC recommendations for endorsements for Seattle City Council Races.

Here are a few resources and highlights from the conversation:

  • Because 4 of 7 City Council incumbents are not running for reelection, there is an incredible opportunity to change the make-up of the Council to be much more business friendly
  • In order to make these changes, it is imperative that the Seattle Restaurant Alliance support candidates who will be receptive to our issues
  • Stay tuned to the SRA website in the coming weeks to see our endorsements for city council
  • If you would like to donate to the SHP PAC, click here.

Many thanks to Skål Beer Hall for hosting the Seattle Restaurant Alliance June meeting.

Next SRA Meeting:

The next meeting will be a Seattle City Council Candidate Meet and Greet in July (Date and Location TBD).
