Officer who Terry Caver on Queen Anne sidewalk last year gets 20-day suspension

From Publicola: Seattle Police officer Christopher Gregorio is currently serving a 20-day suspension for failing to follow his department’s de-escalation protocols before fatally shooting 57-year-old Terry Caver last May. While an investigation by the Office of Police Accountability (OPA) concluded that Gregorio’s recklessness exacerbated an already volatile encounter on a Lower Queen Anne sidewalk, OPA Director Myerberg ultimately ruled that Gregorio couldn’t be disciplined for the shooting itself, only the decisions that led to it.



Seattle CPC cancels planned mayoral candidate debate

The Community Police Commission (CPC) will no longer be hosting a planned mayoral candidate debate focused on public safety and police accountability as it was originally environed. Former Council President Bruce Harrell has declined our invitation to participate.

The CPC still hopes to find the best ways to educate and facilitate a community dialogue about the critical issues Seattle’s future mayor will face regarding public safety and police accountability. We hope to share those plans with you at a future date.
