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.
