Office of the SPD COMPLIANCE COORDINATOR

On July 27, 2012, the U.S. Department of Justice and the City of Seattle reached a comprehensive settlement agreement to ensure that police services are delivered in a manner that fully complies with the Constitution and laws of the United States, effectively ensures public and officer safety, and promotes public confidence in the Seattle Police Department and its officers.

The agreement is embodied in two documents: (1) a Settlement Agreement and Stipulated Order of Resolution overseen by the Federal Court and a Monitor and (2) a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) enforced by the parties, with community oversight and the assistance of a Monitor.

The Settlement Agreement and MOU also create the Community Police Commission, a community board charged with reviewing and providing recommendations on certain areas of reform that are best assessed with community input.
