Record Number of Seattle Cops Leave Force in September

Thirty-nine officers left the force last month—more than twice the number of retirements or resignations in any month on record.  

"We are losing an unprecedented number of officers," Mayor Jenny Durkan (D.) admitted.

She argued that the loss in police only "makes it even more critical that we recruit and retain officers committed to reform and community policing that reflect the diversity and values of our city."
