Seattle Police Department Line of Duty Death
The Seattle Police Officers’ Guild (SPOG) is confirming the tragic Line of Duty Death involving one of our members. Yesterday at approximately 0118 hours, a Seattle Police Officer took police action to assist a motorist on I-5 within the City of Seattle. Sadly, while serving the community, the officer was fatally struck by another vehicle and died at the scene.
Seattle Police Officers’ Guild President Mike Solan said the following, “Seattle lost an incredible police officer yesterday morning. Moreover, humanity lost a piece of its foundation as her spirit was called for another service. She exemplified how a public safety peace officer should conduct themselves. This is a terrible loss to our family and we will never forget her sacrifice, courage, strength and spirit. She was our Wonder Woman. It was an honor and a privilege to have known her.”
SPOG is providing resources to assist the family and we are working closely with the department during this difficult time. Out of respect for the officer’s family, we will not be naming the officer until the Seattle Police Department officially comments. Police officers are fantastic humans.
