SPD Safe Place Decal

The Safe Place symbol is trademarked and depicts a police shield surrounding the colors that traditionally have symbolized the LGBTQ community since the 1970s.  It is used by others only with the permission of the SPD. In 2018, the language on all decals was updated to encourage the reporting of all bias crimes, in all communities, not just LGBTQ.

The SPD Safe Place decal is meant to convey inclusion and intersectionality with any and all individuals, regardless of their race, political beliefs, nationality, age, gender, sexual orientation and/or identification, or any other differences either actual or perceived.

Use of the Safe Place Decal  

To maintain continuity and branding, the badge shape with the rainbow colors are trademarked as the official symbol of the SPD Safe Place initiative and should only be displayed and used only after committing to the Safe Place principles and with the express permission of the Seattle Police Department's Safe Place Coordinator.  

How to Get a Decal 

To order your own SPD Safe Place Decal you must also sign up to participate in the program. 

If you are a law enforcement agency, SPD authorizes you to use your own agency name and website on them.  More information about ordering your own custom decal. 

Placement of the Safe Place Decal

The SPD SAFE PLACE decals should ideally be placed 3'-5' from the ground, near the front entrance of the building.  For schools, the decals should be placed at the front office, or school counselor's office.
