Our Continued Struggle

WSPS urges you to contact your elected local, county and state officials, and demand that they work to stop the unsafe placement of civilly committed Sexually Violent Predators in residential neighborhoods.

This has been happening covertly. There has not been proper notification. No specific warnings were given to homeowners, communities or even local officials. The concentration of civilly committed sexually violent predators in a single home in our neighborhoods threatens the emotional and physical safety of the entire community, and lowers property values as well, as Washington State’s own studies show.

Again, we urge you, our fellow citizens, to contact your elected officials via email or letter. WSPS has provided two customizable templates to assist you:
