The next story concerns the Seattle Police Department and their Safe Space Program. The police actively recruit businesses to become safe havens for victims of hate crimes. The businesses are asked to post stickers prominently in their windows. The sticker designates these businesses as places of refuge for victims of assault or harassment, particularly for members of the LGBTQ community. Employees at the businesses are trained to report the crime to police and harbor victims until the police arrive.
