POLL: Are you optimistic that the city can hire 200 police officers by 2020?

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray plans to hire 200 new police officers by 2020. Can it be done? With the Seattle Police Department under federal scrutiny, how well are recruitment efforts going? Facing budget shortfalls, can the state police academy train enough recruits to meet the city's needs? Why are some Seattle neighborhoods hiring private security officers? We examine the city's hiring headache as it aims to improve community relations and public safety.
