Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best said she wants to retake the police precinct in the self-declared “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone,” or “CHAZ,” “as soon as possible.” “Ideally, we just need to get back into the building,” Best told local station KIRO-7 on Friday. “People are looking for a plan, but we want to make sure we modulate anything that we’re doing,” Best added. This week, decrying police brutality after the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, demonstrators have turned part of Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood into a protest center with speakers, drum circles and Black Lives Matter painted on a street near the police station.
