Alive Day Celebration – Houston Gass

The term “Alive Day” is seldom spoken among Law Enforcement Officers (LEO’s). What you’ll hear is “anniversary of your incident”, “that day everything changed”, or “when it happened”, but rarely will you hear of it in terms of a day to reflect upon. Most try to shutter the past and compartmentalize the trauma. It is easier to ignore it than accept it and move past. With little fanfare from their agencies, it’s a wonder it’s even acknowledged.

At LENN, we choose to celebrate the day of change. It is a life altering event for those affected. Rather than dwell on the past, we will lift up those that survived. After all, why should we mourn what has not been lost when we should be [...]

Seattle City Council Balks on Mayor’s Police Reform Budget

Seattle, WA – While touting the phrases of “Cut the police budget by fifty percent”, the Seattle City Council, in an unforeseen move, trimmed police spending by only twenty percent in its recent vote on the mayor’s projected budget. In an 8-1 victory on Monday, law enforcement saw complete funding for 100 officers, where naysayers wanted less than half of that. To further stifle speculation of the last minute change in funding, Mayor Jenny Durkin announced that she would sign the budget rather than veto the changes.

Previous propositions from the council assisted in the resignation of SPD Chief Carmen Best earlier this year following civil unrest, [...]
