Hello NPAC members,

As you may have guessed, our April NPAC meeting is cancelled due to our state and local governments' guidelines and not least to keep our hosts at Northaven Senior Living safe. I'm happy to report that as of this morning no one in neither assisted living nor independent living at Northaven have covid-19!

Our April meeting was going to be a panel on public safety by the three city council members representing the north precinct. We will try to reschedule that. We will miss seeing the Captain in person and hearing his captain's report, but Captain Sano sends us this message:

"To all North Precinct residents, business owners and workers, this COVID-19 pandemic has really changed the way we all live and interact. We are definitely in unprecedented times and unchartered waters! I understand the fear and apprehension you all are feeling. I get it, I really do! 
 But, please know this: the Seattle Police Department continues to patrol our streets and respond to calls as we have always done. While we are encouraging our citizens to utilize CopLogic or the telephone reporting to minimize face-to-face contact, that doesn’t mean we’re not responding to priority calls or other calls for service. We are still getting dispatched to calls all over the North Precinct. 
The good news is, year-to-date, our calls for service are down almost 5%. Our overall crime is down 10%. In the last 28-days, our calls for service are down almost 9%, despite a number of people being at home. In that same time period, overall crime has been down 34%! Burglaries are down 20% and larcenies are down 48%! 
Still, be vigilant and report suspicious activity. Call 9-1-1 if you truly believe there is a crime about to occur or is occurring. Our Communications Section is still fully staffed and answering all of the calls coming their way! 
Most importantly, stay home unless you have to go to the doctor, the pharmacy or the store. Take care of one another and know we’re going to get through this"

The NPAC Bylaws are here:

The NPAC executive board hopes you are all doing ok and staying at home as much as you can. We thank those of you who are essential workers still on the job. We look forward to when we can meet again. Until then, take care.
Nancy Rauhauser
Secretary, NPAC
