Meridian Park and Echo Lake will host Community Meeting about Police De-Escalation Program

Friday, June 16, 2017

On Tuesday, June 20, at 7pm in Shoreline City Council Chambers, 17500 Midvale Ave N, Meridian Park and Echo Lake Neighborhood Associations will host a presentation about Shoreline Police Department’s new RADAR program.

The "Risk Awareness, De-escalation and Referral" (RADAR) concept is intended to change the way that police agencies do business.

This concept operates beyond traditional police functions, to embrace community care-taking and procedural justice.

With RADAR, officers focus resources on specific individuals with a history of violence, including violence related to substance abuse, dangerous mental conditions, or developmental disability. 

Through the establishment of voluntary, positive and cooperative relationships with these higher risk individuals and their circle of support (“COS”), RADAR breaks the chain of misunderstanding and escalation that often is a catalyst for use-of-force incidents.

All are welcome to attend and light refreshments will be served.

For more information email meridianparkna@gmail.com or ELNABoard@gmail.com

MPNA meetings are held on the third Tuesday of the month at City Hall Room 303 and ELNA meetings are held the same evening in Room 301.
