West Seattle scene: ‘Coffee with a Cop,’ and your next chance to talk with police

The Starbucks @ Admiral Safeway was a Southwest Precinct satellite for two hours this morning during the latest “Coffee with a Cop” event (as announced two weeks ago). In our photo above, from left, are Joe Everett, the City Attorney’s Office precinct liaison; Jennifer Danner, crime-prevention outreach; Sgt. Heidi Tuttle from community outreach; and Officer Ken Mazzuca, from the precinct Community Police Team. Couldn’t stop by but got a question for local police? Your next chance is 7 pm Tuesday (May 21st) at the precinct (2300 SW Webster), during the May meeting of the West Seattle Crime Prevention Council.

    These cops look real soft. Maybe it’s time to stop drinking coffee and get out there and start approaching some of the criminals.

      Assuming you’re not trying to be funny … no one in the photo is a patrol officer:
      -Joe E, the precinct liaison (you can follow the link in the story if you are not familiar with the program), is a lawyer, not an officer.
      -Jennifer D is a civilian SPD employee. Her job is to help you find ways to keep the criminals away.
      -Sgt. Tuttle is with the department-wide community-outreach program. But also an SPF Medal of Honor winner.
      -Officer Mazzuca has alternated SPD service with overseas military deployment (that link’s more interesting than the mention we had here from 2010).

    I don’t think police understand how frustrated citizens are. My going to these meet ups and getting involved in other ways (filing out citizen request forms for enforcement, emailing officers, Sergeants, Lieutenants, Captains, and Assistant Chiefs) over the years hasn’t improved anything. I’ve never seen enforcement or patrols at locations where crime and other violations are repeated over and over. I’ve let them know time, date, location, and description of the violations or infractions and nothing. I know I am not alone.
