Community Partners

The accountability system is driven by the priorities of the people of Seattle. It is the responsibility of the Office of Inspector General (OIG) to be accessible, flexible, and present with and in the community. The police accountability ordinance (Ord 125315) charges OIG with "meeting its mission in a way that reflects the values of Seattle's diverse communities."

OIG Community and Youth Advisory Groups

In the near future, Inspector General Judge will be inviting members of the community, including a youth group, to meet regularly with OIG staff as working groups and sounding boards for helping to ensure that OIG work remains true to community concerns. It is IG Judge's goal to form these groups by Fall 2019.

Defining "community" is a challenge that lies at the heart of police accountability. OIG will be developing a thoughtful process for onboarding this group of volunteers, but has not yet determined the selection process. Please stay tuned for more information. If you would like to be kept informed of progress, please contact OIG (see below).
