North Seattle residents voice concern about crime during town hall meeting
SEATTLE - Public safety remains in the top of mind for people who live in Seattle. On Monday night, some who live in North Seattle voiced their concerns about crime during a town hall meeting at Bitter Lake Community Center. For some, prostitution continues to be a problem. “It breaks my heart to see the young girls out there at seven in the morning, especially about a month ago when it was 40 degrees out,” said Captain Eric Sano of the Seattle Police Department’s North Precinct. “My goal is to get out there to work with OPS, our high risk victim’s unit, and get the men that are buying these women for sex and then go after the pimps who are exploiting these women.”
