Release Joint Statement Regarding Early Release of Prisoners

(Seattle, WA) Seattle Police Officers’ Guild President Mike Solan and King County Police Officers Guild President Mike “Manny” Mansanerez release the following joint statement regarding the Governor’s decision to release nearly 1,000 prisoners early:

“We are concerned about the safety of our neighborhoods in these already difficult times and it requires a team effort.  We have had no detailed briefings on the early release of nearly 1,000 inmates.  It’s the communities across our great state and our officers that protect them that will end up dealing with the negative outcomes of these decisions and its risk to public safety.  They are behind bars for a reason.  We’d hope for more of a partnership when it comes to matters involving public safety.”
