Every two years the Everett Police Department updates the Everett City Council on “SODA” or stay out of drug areas in the Everett City limits. These are areas identified by the police department where a judge can order an individual to stay out of following a conviction for a drug offense. Someone with a valid “SODA” order can be arrested for simply being in one of these areas.

This Wednesday the Everett City Council will be getting a briefing on the current areas as well as the addition of two more areas the Everett Police Department would like to add to the list. The council is expected to take action on the recommendations at their meeting on May 24th.

The council bases their decision on information provided by Everett Police. For Wednesday’s briefing Everett Police Sergeant Jeff Hendrickson, who heads the EPD Anti-Crime Team known as ACT has provided a list of current and two new proposed “SODA” areas for council approval. The two new areas are described below. Click photo to enlarge description.

The number one area for drug activity in Everett is near 36th and Smith streets. The number two and three areas are near both locations of a major retailer in south Everett.

You can see Hendrickson’s full report to the city council here. Again Wednesday’s activity is just a briefing with action not expected until the 24th of this month.
