First Hill Crime & Safety Focus Group July 12th
Please join Seattle University Dept. of Criminal Justice, the Seattle Police Dept. and your neighbors for a discussion regarding crime and safety issues in the First Hill neighborhood on Wednesday July 12th at 6:30 pm at Seattle University in Pigott 102.
Seattle University is partnering with the Seattle Police Department, conducting qualitative research on community crime concerns so that SU researchers can collaborate with SPD leadership in improving the city’s community policing initiative. Outreach to diverse communities in Seattle is a key part of this initiative and is essential for understanding how to address unique crime concerns throughout the city.
About the focus groups:
> Discussions are semi-structured and led by Seattle University Criminal Justice graduate students
> Focus groups typically last about one hour
> Content of the discussion will be collected by a note-taker but no names or identifiers will be collected
> Participants are encouraged to stay for the duration of the meeting, but are free to leave at any time
