Murray commends SPD May Day preparedness and response

SEATTLE (May 2, 2014) – Mayor Ed Murray today provided the following statement regarding the performance of the Seattle Police Department on May Day:

“Seattle police officers conducted themselves with admirable patience and professionalism during May Day yesterday and throughout the night.

“Their training and preparation showed: Officers kept order in our streets and supported the marchers in their peaceful expression of their First Amendment rights. Arrests were limited in number, and damage to property was kept to a minimum.”

“I want to thank Chief Harry Bailey, Assistant Chief Paul McDonagh, Captain Chris Fowler and all SPD officers for their excellent work.”
