Police Recruits Raising Money For Dawson Place In Everett

April 15, 2017

Everett, Police Blotter

Dawson Place In January of 2016 MyEverettNews.com did a story on Dawson Place Child Advocacy Center here in Everett. As part of that story we introduced you to Ivy Jacobsen, a survivor of abuse who received help at Dawson Place. Ivy is now a police officer recruit with the Bothell Police Department.

MyEverettNews.com recently found out her entire recruiting class is doing a project to give back to the community and has selected Dawson Place as their beneficiary.

Here is what they are doing…

BLEA class 751 at the Police Academy is doing a class project to give back to our community. We want to benefit Dawson’s Place Child Advocacy Center in Everett, Wa. Amazon Local Love did a face lift for Dawson’s Place a year ago completely transforming the interior. We have been in correspondence with Dawson’s Place and the organization is now in need of supplies for children of abuse and their families. Items such as coloring books, crayons, felt-tip markers, books, snacks (granola bars, fruit snacks, small candy), small bottles of water, stress balls, small stuffed animals, etc.

The funds raised for this amazing organization will be replenishing their supplies for the kids and young adults, who come to Dawson Place for counseling, detective and forensic interviews. It will help make their encounter more comfortable—whether they’re anxious, scared, or hungry.

Dawson Place is a single location that provides all the core services needed by child victims of physical abuse, sexual assault, neglect, drug endangerment, or witness to a violent crime. The Crisis Center is located in Everett, Washington.

There are 30 recruits from 22 law enforcement agencies across the State in Class 751 including an officer recruit from the Everett Police Department. The are expected to graduate from the academy in July.
