The Seattle Group for Police Accountability is a political activism group that was born from the community’s need for police accountability.

Seattle’s history has shown that the Seattle Police Department (SPD) continually avoids various avenues to hold it accountable and transparent.

Our mission is to hold SPD accountable for misconduct and ensure they fulfill their expected role in our communities.

The intention of SGPA is to work alongside efforts by the community and other groups to de-fund and restructure the Seattle Police Department.

We will:

Look critically within the SPD’s contracts, related manuals, documents, legislation, communication - current or future - and advocate for necessary changes.

Advocate for SPD transparency to the public and with community involved oversight entities (ex. Community Police Commission (CPC)).

Advocate for empowerment of oversight entities (ex. Community Police Commission (CPC)) so that they can legally hold SPD accountable.

Advocate for simplified avenues for Seattle residents to report police misconduct in a manner that ensures investigation, accountability, and transparency to residents.

Be transparent about our findings and initiatives, which we will communicate through our platform.
