Good morning and thank you for joining us today, really honored to be here with chief Diaz as he announces some changes to the Seattle Police Department's staffing and operations. I want to also note that this is the official last day of carbon best is police chief. Again. My profound gratitude is mayor and on behalf of the city of Seattle for all of her service and also our gratitude to chief ideas for stepping into this role it incredibly challenging time for the Seattle police Department. A Seattle has demanded changes in how we do policing and for significant investments in the community to undo centuries of systemic racism. I've articulated four key points. For my vision for the city of Seattle. First, we must invest in black, indigenous and people of color communities. They have been underfunded for centuries. And here in Seattle. That is true as well. I will be sharing more later this month about my commitment to invest $100 million in those communities in a process that will be led by those communities. We also have been investing in you young people an opportunity. Which many of you have seen for our announcements this week. Further in educational justice on the part of the families, education and preschool and promised Levy Going upstream is so critical and education justice is a key to so many of the inequities that we see here in Seattle and across the nation. We also will be promoting accountability and reform, including statewide reforms of police unions and finally rethinking and reimagining policing, including Seattle Police Department's Uh, top to bottom review of culture and budget. Allowing us to meet. Public safety challenges that we face in 2020. These changes also lay the groundwork for the future. We know that pending the outcome of the robust community engagement, we must respond to what community said. But we also need to act now to increase efficiency structured around Seattle Police Department's core function To respond to high volume high priority 900 calls Chief D s will go into further details. But at a high level, the Seattle Police Department is moving 100 officers into 911 response. This includes some officers from other specialty units. This. This augmentation will quickly give us the ability to respond to 911 calls on a more rapid basis. One thing I've heard from both officers and community members is that officers don't have the time. They need to know the residents and businesses of the neighborhoods they serve, and many times it's because they were responding from called to call to call. And their time is just too fast to spend what they need to do, let alone answer priority to calls. Chief. Diaz's announcement is furthering the goals to better align the culture of SPD and be focused on communities and neighborhood engagement. He's also increasing the number of patrol ships. He knows that on his list of priorities is reducing the overtime budget. An increasing supervisory accountability.

His Dr John Lynch general manager of the forty Niners told me a story here today. I thought it was really in. Interesting. He said that on their day off the other day yesterday, whenever it was their day off, he was sitting in his office doing some work and he looked outside and they're a solitary figure outside on the field working with. I think in equipment guy on the jugs machine, catching footballs and Lynch said he was out there for two and a half hours by himself. And so that to me, speaks to almost intent, Antonio, Brown type of drive. That's the kind of stuff that he does now who knows what can happen. But the fact is in Tonio Brown, sixth round pick out of central Michigan. So you don't have to be of, you know, you don't have to be a top ten pick from Clemson ala Bama or something. You just have to have that drive if you really want to really be great. Yeah, I agree. Antonio Brown's, the guy that I'm reminded of with him. I don't think he's as quick as Brown. He's got the deep downfield speed now, Antonio Brown also happens to have a quarterback who's a really great deep passer. I'm not sure if Garoppolo if that's his his forte, he's gotten better at as the season's gone on..
