Include funding in the 2014 budget for the White Center Storefront Deputy

This petition had 143 supporters


WE the undersigned appeal to King County Executive Dow Constantine, The King County Council, and Sheriff John Urquhart to include funding in the 2014 budget and beyond for the White Center Storefront Deputy. This position has proven to be essential for the overall safety for residents, businesses and anyone who visits the White Center Community.

During periods when this position was left vacant, we saw an increase in crime, public intoxication, and prostitution. Gangs, drug and gun dealers, took over our streets culminating in the ATF operation dubbed “Center of Attention” that yielded 53 arrests, along with the seizure of 68 guns, 51 pounds of methamphetamine, two pounds of crack cocaine and over ten pounds of powder cocaine.

For the continued wellbeing of this community, we ask that you prioritize public safety and continue to fund our White Center Storefront Deputy.
