Update: Seattle City Attorney Launches Partnership to Address Prolific Offenders

In May 2022, MyNorthwest.com published an article describing Seattle City Attorney Ann Davison's announcement of a new High Utilizer Initiative. The program will identify individuals responsible for repeat criminal activity across the City of Seattle and aims to dramatically reduce their public safety impacts. To ensure these individuals have access to critical social safety programs, the City Attorney’s Office will prioritize the cases of High Utilizers and work in coordination with public safety partners and service providers.

I have received the list of Seattle’s “High Utilizers" and desire to provide and update.

Of the 118 people identified by Seattle, 17 (or 14%) had criminal cases in Snohomish County Courts. What remains unknown is how many of the 118 were arrested in Snohomish County but not charged for whatever reason. I suspect the number is higher than 17. Regardless, I still believe Attorney Ann Davison's approach has merit: prioritize those who repeatedly offend and keep them off the streets which prevents them from victimizing even more people.

It's programs like these that will help us improve the accountability and visibility of all crime. If you agree we need to do better, I hope that I can count on your vote for Snohomish County Prosecutor. Thank you.
