Help Bring “LEAD” to the North End

Keep Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion (LEAD) in the City Budget

Lake City Neighbors – Please consider sending a letter to the Seattle City Council to support the inclusion of the Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion (LEAD) funding in the final budget. LEAD’s proven method of helping people in crisis on our streets is critical to our neighborhoods. Supported by many homeless advocates, service providers and the Seattle Police Department, “LEAD is designed to improve community health and public order by allowing officers to redirect people engaged in street-level drug possession, sales or sex work to community-based services instead of jail and prosecution whenever appropriate”.
The program is already having a profound affect in West and East Seattle and there is money allocated to expand but we need to drive the message home.

Here is a form letter you can use to send to Council: LEAD Expansion Letter

Please send your email or call council Today!
