The Seattle Police Department’s Office of Professional Accountability has received three complaints in the past 24 hours in connection with recent street protests over police brutality and racial bias in the criminal justice system, an official said.
Two of the complaints relate to use of force by police and one relates to rudeness/professionalism, the office’s civilian director, Piece Murphy, said Tuesday afternoon.
Murphy provided no further information on the complaints, which his office has yet to review. Each may or may not lead to a misconduct investigation.
Two weeks of protests in Seattle over police brutality and racial bias in the criminal justice system have been largely peaceful, with some arrests.
