SCCA June Meeting:

Crime & Safety

Tuesday, June 18th
9 – 10 AM

  Wells Fargo Bank| 2600 E Franklin 

Please join us for a timely discussion of Crime & Safety issues in Seward, especially as they impact businesses. We have been hearing concerns from many of you about increased crime and drug activity in recent weeks and decided to pull together a meeting on short notice. Third Precinct CCP Safe Officer Shun Tillman will join us, along with Ryan SanCartier, aide to CM Abdi Warsame. Please help spread the word.

One resource available to Seward businesses and residents is Seward Longfellow Restorative Justice. Michele Braley from SLRJ will be there to talk about the restorative justice approach they use to respond to harm and conflict, meaning that the person harmed, those causing harm, and the community are included in conversations about how the actions had an impact and in developing a plan to make things better. They primarily work with youth who have broken the law, including shoplifting, damage to property of businesses, and credit card fraud. They are also available as a resource for facilitating restorative conversations and for consultations about how to use a restorative lens to address harm.


RSVPs requested – coffee & morning treats will be served.
