In a heartbreaking and revealing interview on The Ari Hoffman Show on Talk Radio 570 KVI, President of the Seattle Police Officer’s Guild Mike Solan said regarding police officers leaving the department, “At the end of this month…we will be close to 300 officers (leaving), that’s a third of the agency.”
Solan told Hoffman that the loss of officers was from last year to date and could range from 288 officers to 300. Solan described the departing officers as “great human beings that do the job. They just want to serve.”
