SOUTH SEATTLE An advisory board that oversees a secure treatment facility for sex offenders in South Seattle has agreed to present the mayor's office with a list of requests from the Georgetown Community Council. The windowless compound near the viaduct on First Avenue and Spokane Street, which opened in February 2006, currently houses two residents, at a cost of about $1 million a year. Whenever the residents leave the facility, an escort from the Department of Social and Health Services accompanies them. Two-dozen surveillance cameras monitor the residents' movements. The surrounding area isn't so much a neighborhood as an industrial sprawl; nearby are a warehouse, an Italian import company, and a tow service parking lot. Nonetheless, at least a handful of Georgetown residents—who protested when the facility was sited near their neighborhood—see it as a continued threat and have requested additional police service, thousands of dollars for a neighborhood watch, and additional city staff to keep them informed of crime issues. Members of the Georgetown Community Council cite the discontinuance last October of a 24-hour police watch at the facility—a decision that was made based on the lack of any incidents, according to DSHS administrator Allen Ziegler. In compensation, the council has requested a new police officer be assigned to Georgetown—many blocks from the facility itself.
