KIRO Goes to Belltown: Is an Increased Police Presence Helping?

Kind of a pain that KIRO won’t let me embed their video.

It’s a short segment, but Belltown noteworthy as they interview David Meinert, Owner of the 5Point and Tim Gaydos, Pastor of Mars Hill Downtown.

The consensus is yes, the increased patrols are helping out. But, some great points are made in terms of long term viability and the need for a comprehensive deescalation training.
