Sound Team Members and Clients to Give Feedback Regarding Seattle Police Response to Protests

Several Sound team members and clients will have the opportunity to participate in a virtual listening session sponsored by the Office of Inspector General on August 13, from 9:30 am – 11 am. The primary goal of this event, which is called a “Sentinel Event Review,”  is to hear from diverse, unheard voices usually not present at these kinds of events. These voices are vital when it comes to creating policies related to law enforcement. Sound team members and clients interact often with local law enforcement at various sites. Furthermore, police play an important role in de-escalation and the handling of other types of complex situations involving team members and clients. Having positive interactions with the police is critical to the welfare of Sound’s team members and clients.
