2015 Annual Award Winners

Message from The Chief - November 6, 2015 

Seattle Police Chief Kathleen O'Toole


This evening is to honor the outstanding accomplishments by members of the Seattle Police Department, both sworn and civilian.

Over the past year, the SPD has responded professionally to large demonstrations, increased gun violence and emergencies of all magnitudes. Despite the challenges police face nationally, the men and women of the Seattle Police Department continue to be proactive and dedicated to the residents and visitors of Seattle.

In Seattle, crime is down, department productivity is up, and we’re moving full speed ahead in the compliance process. Most important, there are many indications that community satisfaction and trust are on the rise. I hope every member of our department and their families continue to feel pride in the work that the Seattle Police Department does each day.

Very sincere thanks to the Foundation for their continued support of our personnel and programs.

Congratulations to the 2015 award recipients – we salute you and give thanks for your commitment and excellence.


Kathleen M. O’Toole, Chief of Police
