Seattle Police detail plans for Maples Leaf (sic)

April 25th, 2015 by Mike

The graphic, above, pretty much says it all.

Although publicity of the Seattle Police Department’s current enforcement push has focused mainly on its 9 1/2 Block downtown strategy, it also earlier this week announced plans on a neighborhood level. Called Micro Community Policing Plans. (Update: Related Danny Westneat column here.)

This is what they say about us.

* “Maples Leaf”  is, for policing purposes, considered part of the Roosevelt/Ravenna neighborhood. As are Wedgwood and Green Lake. Here is the pdf.

Enforcement priorities are:

* Burglaries.

* Drug use in Cowen Park (which IS in Roosevelt/Ravenna, near Whole Foods).

* Bar noise, traffic safety and

* Urinating in public.

Not entirely familiar? We could be in the Northgate neighborhood (including Haller Lake, Pinehurst and North College Park).

There the priorities are:

* Prostitution (along Aurora Avenue North).

* Graffiti.

* Burglaries.

* Traffic safety and lack of lighting.

We’ll be happy to funnel any comments to the North Precinct.
