Public Safety Tomorrow

What Citywide changes are being discussed? 

On September 30, 2020, Mayor Jenny Durkan issued an Executive Order, ordering City departments to support the citywide, community-led process to reimagine policing and community safety by centering the voices of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color communities.

What is SPD's Perspective?

SPD has embraced that change is necessary, and internal conversations confirm it is ready to push past the relative comfort of the reform efforts that have already been put in place.  This should include the perspectives and the experiences of the community, as well as SPD officers and civilian employees.
