Renton Safe Place

The Renton PD Safe Place Program offers victims of hate crimes shelter if they are feeling unsafe – a place where they are welcomed, they can call the police, and wait until officers arrive. Through partnerships with local businesses and organizations, Renton PD Safe Place program decal provides a visual clue for anyone experiencing violence or harassment based on their race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or disability.

For information about the Renton PD Safe Place Program please contact the liaison, Officer Roseanne Hynes at rhynes@rentonwa.gov
