Seattle Police Officers Guild Statement Regarding the Compliance Agreement Filed with the Department of Justice

Today the joint compliance agreement filing between the City of Seattle and the Department of Justice memorializes the significant steps that SPOG members have taken to make the Seattle Police Department the model of public safety reform and the most transparent police agency in the country.

In response, Seattle Police Officers Guild president Mike Solan commented: “Despite losing almost 600 officers since 2020, we’ve done the hard work required and now it’s time for Mayor Harrell and the City Council to do their part and deliver a fair and competitive contract to our officers.  This will ensure the retention of our current officers, and the ability to recruit the finest candidates for future policing careers in Seattle.”
