Seattle Police Working with Seattle Schools to Address Violence

The Seattle Police Department has been diligent in working closely with the Seattle School District to identify and address the ongoing disputes resulting in violence around Garfield High School.

The department will be starting a patrol emphasis in the area to provide police presence to assist in protecting public safety in the community, deter possible criminal activity, prevent violence, and address suspicious behavior seen and or reported. 

In addition to the emphasis around Garfield High School, police will be patrolling the 9400 block of Rainier Avenue South and monitoring the issues that have recently risen. These additional resources will be looking to make arrests for those involved in criminal acts disrupting the peace in our communities. 

We ask the community to call 911 if you observe suspicious behavior or criminal activity so officers can respond to safely handle the situation and to prevent anyone from possibly being injured.
