Neighborhoods to get update on RADAR program

Sunday, June 18, 2017

On Tuesday, June 20, from 7-9pm at City Hall, the Echo Lake and Meridian Park neighborhood associations will get an update on the Shoreline Police RADAR program.

RADAR is a specially trained unit within the department that partners police with mental health professionals. Depending on the situation, both police and mental health professional may respond to a call.

Starting with a public meeting where families were invited to share information about their vulnerable family members, the RADAR unit has been collecting information about people in the community who might need special handling.

In an ideal situation, they will already know the person they are being called to deal with - their name - what agitates them - what calms them down (Hey - how 'bout those Mariners!)

The program has been running for about six months. The members of the unit will talk about the program's successes, challenges, what situations they have encountered, and what they have learned in the process.

Everyone is welcome. The meeting will be held in the Shoreline City Hall Council Chambers, Tuesday, June 20, 7pm.
