Rioting in Seattle – 2020
In the last year 246 police officers left their jobs in Seattle, 180 left last year and 66 so far this year.
That is a crisis.
Yet, Democrats continue to demonize police and side with criminals over law enforcement.
AP News reported:
The Seattle Police Department has said that more than 200 officers left their jobs since last year, citing an anti-police climate in Seattle, City Council policies and disagreements with department leadership.
Police Chief Adrian Diaz said Tuesday that the department is in a “staffing crisis” after more than 180 police officers quit last year and another 66 officers left their jobs so far this year, according to police data.
“We are at record lows in the city right now. I have about 1,080 deployable officers. This is the lowest I’ve seen our department,” Diaz told KING-TV.
Exit interviews with departing officers revealed that some retired early, while others left for policing jobs in different cities or private sector jobs.
