I congratulate Chief Kathleen O’Toole as she takes the helm of the Seattle Police Department. Chief O’Toole’s extensive experience in police reform makes her exceptionally qualified to lead the department at this critical time. I look forward to partnering with Chief O’ Toole and her command staff as we work through the Department of Justice consent decree and challenging public safety issues. I also look forward to a renewed relationship with the members of the Seattle Police Officers Guild and Seattle Police Management Association -- and, indeed, all sworn and unsworn personnel throughout SPD – as we strive to ensure Seattle’s safety and fulfill our common role as public servants.
