Middle Eastern Advisory Council

Note: No upcoming meeting dates. Future dates TBD.

About the Council

The Middle Eastern Advisory Council to the Seattle Police Department (SPD) was created in 2002, becoming one of ten such councils that work collaboratively with the police. The demographic advisory councils were born out of a need to hear directly from demographic communities that often feel disenfranchised, alienated, or uncomfortable approaching the police.
