When there is a public safety issue or a chronic neighbor nuisance, it’s not always most efficient or effective to call 911. Sometimes, it’s best to go through a precinct-liaison program. Up until now, Seattle budget cutbacks have prevented funding to such programs. According to a Seattle Times article, the Seattle City Council has restored funding to allow four attorney liaisons in Seattle’s five police precincts.
For the Magnolia area, your precinct liaison attorney is Sumeer Singla. Starting in mid-February, you can contact him as a resource to solve neighborhood issues, like nuisance properties, feuding neighbors, and gang activity. Additionally, he lives in the West precinct, so he has a vested interest in the public safety issues of Magnolia and the surrounding Queen Anne neighborhood. With a precinct liaison attorney, it increases the police capabilities, using legal means to solve community issues. You can contact him at 206-386-4084 for your community needs, starting mid-February.
