Most importantly, we work hard to protect the benefits, working conditions, training and equipment of our members so they can continue to work hard to protect all of us in the community.

        RE:  Councilmember Harrell’s Comments


The Seattle Police Officers Guild (SPOG) is outraged at the recent statements of Seattle Councilmember Bruce Harrell, who insinuated that the actions of Seattle Police Officers caused the riot on May Day. Councilmember Harrell, who is Chair of the Public Safety Committee, also made an outrageous comment to a citizen after a recent city council meeting. The citizen purported to have received a bruise on her leg while on Capitol Hill on May Day. Councilmember Harrell stated “You know what that looks like to me? A lawsuit.” These comments are highly offensive to the members of SPOG, which make up the rank and file of the Seattle Police Department. SPOG members serve with professionalism and courage day in and day out to protect the public. During May Day demonstrations, SPOG members deal with high stress situations for long hours with little breaks to protect the 1st Amendment rights of those who participate. They do so with professionalism and dedication to duty. To be clear, the people who started the riot were those bent on violence and mayhem. These are the people who brought the rocks, bricks, wrenches and other objects to throw at our members. These individuals were there only to assault law enforcement and inflict maximum property damage along their path. SPOG is extremely proud of our member’s performance during extremely trying times this May Day, and appreciate the leadership of the SPD Command staff and the overwhelming support of the public.

The Seattle Police Officers’ Guild is the largest police labor union in the northwest and represents all sworn Seattle Police Officers and Sergeants which includes over 1250 members.
