Chief O’Toole: SPD Moving Full Speed Ahead With Reform

The Seattle Police Department is moving full speed ahead in implementation of the Consent Decree and will not be distracted in the process.

During a hearing in federal court last week, the honorable James L. Robart, who is overseeing our department’s progress under the Consent Decree, said it best: “get over it, the train has left the station, it’s not going to turn around.”

The vast majority of SPD officers are entirely committed to modernization and reform.
