Restore the SPD’s Friendly Force
- Issue: In recent years, the economic slowdown forced the City of Seattle to make cuts in every department. In the Police Department, these cuts eliminated Community Service Officers (CSOs), civilian employees who responded to non-emergency situations: helping homeless people find services, mediating talks between parents and runaway children, and preventing small disputes from escalating into full-blown crises. This year, the City has the resources to restore the CSO program and would be taking a step toward a more comprehensive view of public safety by doing so.
