BREAKING: Record Number Of Police Officer’s Walking Away From Their Jobs According To New Report, It’s Time To Start Packing HEAT

As the democrats continue to push their assault on defunding police departments, the riots, looting and violence continues across our nation.

The men and women who serve and protect under the thin blue line have been abandoned by the politicians and the people of Seattle, so it is no wonder that officers are choosing to walk away from their jobs.

Seattle Police Department (SPD) officers are leaving the job at a “record pace” — with at least 249 people leaving over the past year alone — as statistics show manpower has been declining in recent years, according to union and city officials, Fox News reports. 

SPD boasted a police force of 1,276 uniformed members at the end of February 2020, but staffing levels dropped by 249 people to 1,027 by the end of February 2021, according to the most recent department statistics available to Fox News.

“Morale is not good, and that’s because we don’t have the political support from our elected officials,” Seattle Police Officers Guild President Mike Solan told Fox News. “And as we’re seeing officers flee this area, it’s a direct result of that lack of political support.”

When the city and a majority of it’s residence do not want you to do your job and the city council horrendously continues to defund you, why in the hell would any cop stay in that hostile environment?

One can only hope that those who chose to walk away, will choose to move to towns and cities that want them to serve and protect as well as having the political support.

Fox News continues:

Prior to 2020, SPD’s staffing numbers had already been shrinking, though not steadily and not nearly as drastically.

SPD staffed 1,283 members at the end of February 2019 and 1,367 uniformed officers at the same time in 2018. Personnel numbers remained the same in February 2016 and 2017, with 1,343 each year, statistics show.

Prior to the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, for which one officer has now been convicted on all charges, Seattle officials “publicly applauded” SPD as “the model of reform” Solan told Fox News earlier this week.

But after Floyd’s death on May 25, 2020, “these same politicians couldn’t run away from us faster,” he said.

“And that’s not saying that we’re devoid of any kind of fault in the riots post-Floyd due to tactics employed by the department,” Solan said, noting that there were “lessons learned.”

For well over a year cities have seen continued violence, rioting and looting as well as constant attacks on the police officers.  everything from having Molotov cocktails thrown at them to having balloons filled with urine and feces thrown at them.

A person can only tolerate so much before they stop and reevaluate what they are doing and why.  Being attacked and constantly berated and openly having your city turn on you, yea that would be reason enough for any officer to be justified on leaving.

Fox News furthered:

Solan also said that while “hundreds” of SPD officers were injured during the riots, elected officials blamed them “for being the instigators,” which further contributed to the decline in police morale.

“I think that the overall anti-police sentiment has really accelerated the separation aspirations by police officers in this city,” he continued, with “separations” referring to retirements or resignations.

In a statement provided to Fox News on Friday, a spokesperson for Mayor Jenny Durkan’s office said SPD has efforted “an increased focus on recruitment and retention,” but “continues to lose sworn officers at a record pace due to ongoing budget uncertainty.”

“Community safety means that we have officers able to respond to 911 calls with more civilian responses, more crisis responses, and more alternatives,” the statement continued. “Based on exit interviews, we know the Council’s threats of continued layoffs or cuts are having a direct impact on decisions to leave the department. Mayor Durkan continues to caution City Council against making additional one-time cuts without addressing hiring and retention of officers, especially diverse officers, to respond to the highest priority calls.”

Maybe this is part of the democrats agenda to defund police departments, force a percentage of officers to walk away and downsize the departments drastically.
