Tukwila Police Safe Place

The City of Tukwila, in conjunction with the Tukwila Police Department, is dedicated to the safety of residents, visitors, and employees to ensure that hate crimes are not tolerated. In the City of Tukwila, that includes Race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender expression, gender identity, mental and physical, sensory disabilities, homelessness, marital status, political ideology, age, or parental status.

Tukwila’s Safe Place Program offers safe places for victims of hate crimes or if they are feeling unsafe. Businesses with the Safe Place stickers in the window communicate to the public that they and their employees provide a safe place to wait for the police to respond. It communicates to victims that no matter their background or status, they will be heard and treated with care and respect by the business they enter and by Tukwila Police Officers who respond.

The Tukwila Police Department adopted the Safe Place program created by the Seattle Police Department in 2015. In partnership with community groups, the Seattle Police Department has been recognized as a national leader in policies and procedures and enacting some of the first transgender policies in the nation.
