There have been some changes this month at the crime-fighting organization, Safe Streets.
Steve Jewell, formerly of the Washington State Patrol and Algona Police Department, joined the agency Dec. 1 as its deputy director. He will be working with the executive director and board of directors to plan, direct, execute and evaluate the programs and provide enhanced accountability of campaign initiatives, according to a press release.
Jewell previously chaired “the Governor’s Methamphetamine Coordinating Committee and worked the Washington State Methamphetamine Initiative’s representatives to develop and deploy a statewide drug-endangered children protocol,” the press release states.
In addition, Safe Streets has hired:
- Barbara Reed as the new administration and human resources manager.
- Michelle Galaz as the new program development manager.
- Billie Porter, a former AmeriCorp member, as administrative marketing assistant.
- Moa Gerdes, also a former AmeriCorp member, as the new methamphetamines programs administrative assistant.
