Office of Professional Accountability Publications

Making the work of the OPA transparent promotes the confidence of both the public and the employees of the department. OPA publishes a report quarterly summarizing the  complaints closed, and includes updated statistical information for the year to date. In addition, OPA publishes annual statistical and policy/training recommendation reports, and provides information on selected cases and issues of community concern.

This page provides access to all of these OPA reports, along with all of the OPA Auditor publications and electronic versions of OPA outreach brochures. This page focuses specifically on OPA and OPA Auditor related materials. In addition, the SPD website also has a general Seattle Police publications section which houses all Department publications, including the SPD Policy Manual.

All OPA publications are available as PDFs.
To view a PDF you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader, a free program you can download and install. Adobe Reader
