TRAVEL ADVISORY: I-5 through south Seattle will be shut down during overnight hours this weeked

SPD to get new overseer

Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn is holding a press conference this afternoon to update the search for director of the Office of Professional Accountability, which handles investigations into police misconduct.

It’s an important job at a time when  the U.S. Department of Justice is requiring the department to reform after finding a pattern of excessive force used.

Kathryn Olsen held the OPA job for 5 years, but recently stepped down.

More to come.
