SEATTLE, WASHINGTON - The Kiwanis Club of West Seattle
presented the Everyday Hero Award to Captain Joe Kessler on behalf of all the
officers who serve the West Seattle Community, Wednesday, March 3rd at 11:00am
at the Southwest Precinct, located at 2300 SW Webster St.
The Kiwanis Everyday Hero Award honors folks who may go
unnoticed or unappreciated for their work or commitment to the community.
Kiwanis Club president West Niver says "We've seen a marked improvement in
safety for the Delridge community since this precinct was established and
appreciate all that they do for us."
At the event, Niver said, "I cannot think of anything
more appropriate than to recognize the Southwest Precinct for all the wonderful
work you have done here. Crime has gone down. Safety has risen. You guys have
done a wonderful job of making this place safer."
"The officers do a great job," Captain Kessler
told the West Seattle Herald. "We appreciate what the community does and
the fact that they understand what the officers do for them. I think Seattle's
one of the safest big cities in the country, a great place to live. That's why
I live here.
"Particularly in West Seattle and the Southwest
Precinct, the community calls, and keeps us informed of what's going on,"
