This no pursuit policy has to be infuriating to officers of the law.
Scum criminals know they won’t be apprehended or chased giving them the upper hand and encouraging more and more of these crimes. Blatant disregard for the law comes with little or no consequences as if it were a valid career choice. Their mothers must be so proud.
I lost a dear friend who was hit by a police vehicle chasing someone who stole $90 worth of merchandise. Three children, a husband and many friends left wondering why. I and my son who was 5 at the time were nearly killed by a man fleeing state troopers over $20 in stolen gas. He thought if he made us wreck, it would end the pursuit. The decision to end high speed pursuits for lesser crimes seems prudent — and it would seem, life saving.
It’s quite possible these “Scum criminal(‘s)” mothers didn’t want them in the first place and couldn’t afford to raise them right in the second place. How would it be a good thing for the police to high speed chase these people for property theft only to have them possibly run over a child in a crosswalk with a mother who loves the child and is trying to raise the child right? How would that make the world a better place and even be an intelligent thing for the police to even possibly consider doing under these potentially dangerous circumstances? The police have eyes to get a license number and possibly track the “Scum criminals” down later or not, but NOBODY got killed in the process. I would think the police, of all people, would be embracing these life saving laws when violent crime isn’t part of the decision equation; to chase or not. Policemen out there tell us I’m wrong and why. I have an open mind that can be changed.
If that Safeway store gets robbed many more times, I’m sure they’re going to be closing it down just like Walmart is doing in Portland
If the Safeway store is making good money, they aren’t likely to shut it down over property crime. Walmart has a history of closing stores in places where the minimum wage is higher than what they want to pay their employees. Sam’s Club in Seattle was a victim of that approach when Seattle raised it’s minimum wage several years ago. Portland’s minimum wage recently went to 14.75 Hr. Walmart says they are closing Portland stores for under performing as they claim for the Everett store they are closing. Crime may be part of it, but not all of it.
I heard from a credible source that the TJ Maxx located in that shopping center has the highest loss due to shoplifting of any in the state. Not to mention the constant issues at Safeway. Instead of the never open “mini city hall” perhaps it should have been an always open “real police station.” A huge missed opportunity for what the neighborhood and city actually needed.
My thoughts exactly……or at least keep a car on stand by and highly visible in the parking lot.
Good point Tom. Why is our police department nestled down in the safest area, on some of our most valuable land and possibly most congested part of town? Wouldn’t it make more sense to have the police department headquarters in the most crime ridden part of town or a more central part of town, at least? That whole complex down there would probably sell for enough to build a new state of the art police department in another, more appropriate part of town. But we have bigger fish to fry, like visioning for more people to live here and saving the planet.
I think moving the police station is a very good idea. They should do this before going to the expense of solar roofs and gates etc. Why do it twice. I too think a more central area would be helpful for the Police and all of the Edmonds Citizens. I would like to see this be a fast and efficient transfer of location. IF they are planning a small Fire Dept also in the Bowl that too will be a good service for the Bowl residents to get to the hospital more quickly if they need to. Hope it all works out.
I agree on moving the police station. While I can understand how it was originally placed there, times have changed significantly. There is an urgency for police presence in the Hwy 99 area. Store security can’t do much and the thieves know it. I’m all for moving the police station to Hwy 99 area. I feel for all retail & restaurant employee in that area. It’s not safe..
If not a police station, that area definitely needs ongoing proactive visual police presence. That plaza is becoming increasingly full of sketchy characters and the City Hall annex has done nothing to improve it whatsoever. It’s unfortunate because there are a number of good merchants l that I really like there and the whole area is deteriorating.
Moving the PD could start a chain of events that may be helpful for Edmonds in a number of ways.
1. PD on out the bowl help with Climate Change. A move to 5 Corners would put PD closer to the center of Edmonds and closer to their major work. Less gas for PD and staff.
2. The fried-up space could be used for the rest of the DT city staff.
3. City Hall could be used for: a. Boutique Hotel or b. new senior housing or c. affordable housing.
1. More public parking at PS complex
2. Saves the cost of the fencing planned for the current PS complex.
If we put on our thinking caps, we can generate other ideas as well.
