Short meeting tonight for the West Seattle Crime Prevention Council, and here’s a quick note for our first report: The City Attorney’s Office liaison for the Southwest Precinct (and South) is now Matthew York, who spent the past two years in the East Precinct. He succeeds Melissa Chin, who’s now working in Bellevue (but also attended tonight’s meeting). The precinct liaison role is explained here – the liaisons often work on community problems that go beyond clear-cut cases of crime, such as “nuisance houses.”. York told the WSCPC that most of his 12-year career has been spent as a prosecutor, “from traffic tickets to murder trials.” He joined the City Attorney’s Office in 2010 and supervised DUI prosecutions for two years until becoming the East Precinct liaison two years ago. Among the situations he’s working on now in West Seattle is the former “Nickelsville” site east of Highland Park, where he said squatters have taken up residence, and he expects fast action to clear the site. More from tonight’s WSCPC meeting later. (WSB photo by Patrick Sand)
