  1. It is unlikely the Chief will be able to take questions do a very packed agenda that addresses both safety and security for our homeless citizens, so that they we can find a better solution than The Jungle as well as gun violence in the Rainier Valley; however, we strongly encourage attendance. The Neighborhood Safety Alliance intends to address gun violence that is of such high concern in the South Precinct exclusively at a forum in the future.
