Korean Advisory Council

ABOUT THE COUNCIL

The Korean Advisory Council to the Seattle Police Department was created in 1998, and is one of ten councils that work collaboratively with the police.  The Council was created to work with the Seattle Police Department on community issues and concerns, and to share insights and recommendations that could positively impact relationships between the Seattle Police Department and the Korean community.
