Over the last year my office has heard from residents and stakeholders that we need a new, more innovative approach to public safety to ensure community wellbeing.

In response, I transmitted a biennial budget that includes funding to work with community members to re-imagine public safety in the urban unincorporated areas of the County. My office will partner with community members, community-based organizations, and the King County Sheriff’s office to identify new programs that reduce reliance on traditional policing and pilot those programs in our urban unincorporated areas.

By working together, we will create and implement a new vision for how we reduce harm and promote wellbeing for everyone who calls this place home.
