Burien Police officials, along with City Manager Kamuron Gurol, spoke to a full house at TuesdayÂ night’s (Feb. 23) Community Meeting on crimeÂ at Gregory Heights Elementary School â€“ just a few doors away from a recent drug house bust. Concerned residents listened intently during the 90-minute meeting, asked questions and got answers from Police Chief Scott Kimerer and Capt. Bryan Howard. Discussions ranged from what many locals consider to be an increasing, recent crime wave, to statistics showing that crime actually decreased in 2015, to specifics on how to help your neighborhood be safer (think Block Watch), to how to break up teenagers partying on school or park grounds and much more. Two representatives from Alturas at Burien â€“ formerly the Heights at Burien, an apartment complex on Ambaum Blvd. SW near SW 139th â€“ also spoke briefly, assuring attendees that the new owners are doing everything they can to help clean the place up. As many will recall, there have been at least two recent shootings at that location recently. Here’s full, raw audio of the ~90-minute meeting (you can also directly download an MP3 fileÂ here), along with photos taken by Scott Schaefer (NOTE: the audio is the best we could recordÂ in the large room, and we apologize for not being able to correctly record comments from soft-spoken citizens from across the room): ]]>
