Business owners hope Seattle’s $1.6 million investment in police will bring much-needed safety
SEATTLE -- Seattle mayor Jenny Durkan announced plans on Tuesday to pour in $1.6 million into recruiting and retaining officers and building community-based safety programs. The mayor says 911 calls are down since emphasis patrols started, but it’s still a taxing job for the men and women who wear a badge in Seattle who’ve responded to about 350,000 calls for service this year alone.
