South East Asian ADVISORY COUNCIL

SE Asian Advisory

Recent meeting of the South East Asian Advisory Council


ABOUT THE COUNCIL

The Southeast Asian Advisory Council to the Seattle Police Department was created in 1998, becoming one of ten such councils that work collaboratively with the police.  The Council was created to discuss the concerns of the refugee and immigrant communities.

OUR AREAS OF FOCUS

  • Maintain direct lines of communication that build trust between the Southeast Asian communities and the Seattle Police Department.
  • Promote open and respectful dialogue that builds trust between the Southeast Asian communities and the Seattle Police Department.
  • Increase the awareness of Department programs and services, crime prevention, and public safety among the refugee and immigrant communities of Southeast Asia.
  • Work within the Southeast Asian communities and with the Department to promote, understand, and respect the similarities and differences of both the Southeast Asian and police cultures.
  • Work to improve access to programs and services provided by the Seattle Police Department and the City of Seattle.
