Living Room Conversations

What are Living Room Conversations?

These conversations are designed to bring together local community members and police officers in a way that is more comfortable and informal than traditional meetings. The small group setting promotes an open dialogue that allows participants to address neighborhood issues directly with officers who work in the area.

These discussions often include neighborhood safety concerns, the opportunity to get to know your local police officers and to ask those officers questions you may not otherwise have the opportunity to ask.

Who can go and where are they held?

Any resident who lives within the Seattle City Limits are eligible attend a living room conversation - provided that they are either hosting the meeting or have been invited by the host or the host's designee. Living Room Conversations are generally held at a community member's residence or community facility that can accommodate up to 16 participants.
