Thank you for your interest in the Centralia Police Department's Safe Place initiative, is designed to assist the victims of hate/bias crime and to encourage reporting of those crimes.
In late 2018, the Centralia Police Department was contacted by a concerned community member who suggested we contact the Seattle Police Department regarding the Safe Place training. In mid-2019, the Centralia Police Department Command Staff met with the Safe Place creator, Jim Ritter, and quickly recognized the value that the Safe Place training and program would bring to our community.
Since that initial meeting, all Centralia Police Officers have gone through the Safe Place training. Additionally, the Centralia Police Department's Command Staff have met with community members about the training and is proud to sponsor the Centralia Police Department Safe Place to assist in making Centralia a safe place for all to live, visit, and work.
Please contact Deputy Chief Stacy Denham for more information.
