This position offers an exciting opportunity to be on the leading edge of police reform. The Office of Inspector General for Public Safety (OIG) was established by Ordinance 125315 as part of the City of Seattle’s police accountability reform effort. OIG’s charge, as established by ordinance, is “to help ensure the fairness and integrity of the police system as a whole in its delivery of law enforcement services by providing civilian auditing of the management, practices, and policies of SPD and OPA and oversee ongoing fidelity to organizational reforms implemented pursuant to the goals of the 2012 federal Consent Decree in United States of America v. City of Seattle, 12 Civ. 1282 (JLR).” The goal of OIG is to ensure constitutional, accountable, effective, and respectful policing that reflects the values of Seattle’s diverse communities and engenders community trust. The first Inspector General was confirmed by the Council on April 30, 2018.
This position analyzes police practices and participates in decision-making that furthers the purpose and goals of OIG. This position is expected to have the expertise to (1) generate advanced, high-quality work products in support of OIG’s mission with a high level of autonomy, and (2) advise the position’s supervisor and the Inspector General about effective courses of action in a complex, highly scrutinized environment.
