Another deadly attack on police officers in America occurred today. A lot of people have heard about the helmet that saved an Orlando officer. So what about equiping Seattle Police officers with a bullet resistant baseball cap that most people wouldn’t consider “militarized”?

Public records request: I made a public records request on officer safety nine days ago:

This is a public records request for any emails with meta-data about bullet proofing vehicles, increasing body armor, improving building security, patrolling in pairs, requiring more than one officer on all or most calls, protecting addresses of officers and their families, protecting identities of undercover officers, protective equipment during protests/riots. Personally I think there’s a lot SPD could do to better protect officers and hopefully the records will shed light on why things aren’t better.
