‘Continuing the conversation’: Police Chief Kathleen O’Toole to return to West Seattle next week

Just announced by the organizers of last month’s disruption-shortened West Seattle community conversation with Seattle Police Chief Kathleen O’Toole (WSB coverage here, with video): She’ll be back to “continue the conversation” next Wednesday (March 11th). When we spoke with Chief O’Toole right after her February 3rd visit, she promised to return for a second try at West Seattle Q/A, and that’s what this is intended to be. The meeting is set for 6:30-8:30 pm at the Senior Center of West Seattle in The Junction (California/Oregon), co-sponsored again by the West Seattle Block Watch Captains Network and Southwest Precinct Advisory Council (flyer here).

    I hope civility will be enforced.

    That’s awesome, I’m grateful she’s coming back so soon. Hopefully there are some ground rules this time – so that Chief O’Toole, and the rest of us, aren’t shouted down.

    Hopefully the protestors respect the rest of the community’s right to engage with our elected/appointed officials.
    They had their opportunity to protest last time; let other voices be heard this time.

    agree with above comments; it was tremendously disappointing to have our long awaited meeting with the Chief cut short last month; hope they have planned protocols to remove any disruptive protesters this time

    I couldn’t agree more with these comments. I plan on attending and hopefully rude, inappropriate and ineffective protesters will not attend.

    I intend to be there.
    I also intend to treat our guest to our community with respect, dignity, and allow her to speak and respond to questions asked of her. I will not tolerate anyone being rude disrespectful or disruptive toward our city’s ploice chief. This is OUR meeting not an individual’s. I sincerely hope ALL of those who attend have the same intension.

Sorry, comment time is over.
