Recent Events

OIG recognizes that events arising from the death of George Floyd at the hands of police officers are the culmination of a long history of deep individual and structural racial injustice. OIG is committed to providing independent civilian police oversight that hears community demands for change and meaningfully incorporates community concerns, questions, and input into our work. In this transformational time, OIG is, in partnership with community and law enforcement, undertaking a sentinel event review of the Seattle Police Department response to recent mass demonstrations.
