Meet local Capitol Hill SPD Officer: Daniel Auderer

Off. Auderer

The East Precinct Seattle Police Department honor for May goes to Officer Daniel Auderer. Here is a short bio:

“I was raised in the Seattle Area. I attended Franklin High School, North and Central Seattle Community College. While in school I was a Seattle Police Explorer with Post #943. After High School I joined the Army. My entire enlistment was as an Infantryman. My most memorable post was in Washington D.C. where I served as an Escort to the President of the United States. After completing my enlistment I returned home to the Puget Sound. I spent a wonderful 8 years in Construction Management before deciding to follow in my father’s footsteps and become a Police Officer. I started to patrol the streets of the East Precinct in Jan of 2009. I enjoy Capitol Hill and what it has to offer in its quirkiness and free spirited atmosphere. In my off time I enjoy all sports, especially baseball.
I also take advantage of any time I can make it on to the Sound for crabbing and fishing.”

Lets Review: Jason Lajeunesse

Lajeunesse
Cool Jason Lajeunesse

From: http://www.onlythebeat.com

Once a year, Seattleites take over a few blocks of Capitol Hill to enjoy music, drinks, and the summer weather. The Capitol Hill Block Party has come to be a favorite for many who live near Seattle. Boasting three days of musical acts, the CHBP encompasses a wide variety of genres to give those attending the block party a chance to hear new music they have never heard before while at the same time bringing in a few larger top notch acts that attendees know and love.

This year is no exception with the Capitol Hill Block Party bringing in acts such as Chromeo, A$AP Ferg and Rocky, ODESZA, Spoon, and The War On Drugs to headline while flushing out the lineup with amazing up and coming acts such as RAC, Manatee Commune, Slow Magic, and many more. I was given the chance to interview the man who works tirelessly behind the scenes year round to produce the Capitol Hill Block party and operate most of your favorite clubs and music venues in Capitol Hill; Jason Lajeunesse.

Jason Lajeunesse has worked in the music industry since the mid-1990s, starting his career as a talent buyer for venues in the Pacific Northwest. Jason now is managing partner at Neumos, Moe Bar, Big Mario’s Pizza, The Comet Tavern, Barboza, Pike Street Fish Fry, Lost Lake Cafe and Lounge, and Sealed With a Kiss Presents, all of which are located in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood. In 2012, Jason became the producer and owner of the Capitol Hill Block Party (CHBP) after acting as Program Director from 2006 to 2011. That year, Seattle Magazine included Jason in their “Most Influential Seattle People” round-up. Jason has served on the Board of Directors at the Vera Project and currently serves on the Board of Directors at The Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce. He continues to work in the music industry and ties his love of creative process, community, and business together throughout all his endeavors.

Getting to interview the owner of such an incredible festival was quite an honor for me, and after working with other members of the OTB Family, a list of questions was compiled for Mr Lajeunesse. Here for your reading pleasure then is Jason Lajeunesse on the Capitol Hill Block Party.

SPD: Pike/Pine robberies decreasing with two-fold increase in weekend police patrols

unnamed-600x318

Posted on Friday, October 10, 2014 – 8:15 pm by Bryan Cohen

A month of ramped-up of police activity to stamp out Capitol Hill robberies and assaults seems to be making an impact, or at least that was the consensus among Seattle Police top brass, including Chief Kathleen O’Toole, and a group of Capitol Hill business owners who met inside the East Precinct on Friday afternoon.

East Precinct Captain Pierre Davis said there has been a 42% decrease in street robberies over the past month as he’s doubled the weekend police presence in Pike/Pine. On Friday and Saturday nights Davis said he is now deploying up to 30 officers around the Pike/Pine area. The push required the support of the chief and Mayor Ed Murray to divert limited resources to patrolling Capitol Hill’s nightlife activity, Davis said.

Hate Crimes on Seattle’s Capitol Hill

In year marked by deadly hate crimes, SPD says will ‘err on the side of caution’ on bias

Posted on Monday, October 6, 2014 – 11:40 am by jseattle

In a year with two of the most horrendous hate crime incidents in the city’s history, Seattle Police officials provided their annual update on bias crime to the City Council Monday morning.

Assistant Chief Nick Metz told the council that directives at SPD have shifted to “err on the side of caution.”

“If somebody says they believe an action is biased related, we’re going to act on that,” Metz said.

The annual number of reported, investigated bias crimes in the city is relatively low compared to other types of assaults or threats.

In the East Precinct covering Capitol Hill, SPD says there have been 10 incidents investigated in the area with the majority of those happening in Pike/Pine.

CHS has mapped nine of the ten 2014 reports below. A tenth occurred in recent weeks in an incident at R Place that has not yet been widely reported. In that incident, Metz said a “young man” threatened patrons at the club, making “some threats” and “made gestures he had gun.” “Our officers immediately responded and made an arrest,” Metz said. UPDATE: More details on the arrest have been added to the end of this post.
