New Year’s Eve Celebration Safety

The year is quickly coming to an end. As we prepare for New Year’s Eve celebrations, we want to remind you that public safety is our number one priority.

We have added additional staff throughout the city to ensure everyone has a safe evening. In addition to these extra officers, we are working closely with our state and federal law enforcement partners make sure all of your safety needs are met.

You can also expect to see additional DUI patrols in and around Seattle. King County Metro, Seattle streetcar and Sound Transit for the first time ever have added free service until 4 a.m. to help you get a ride to and from New Year’s Eve festivities.

The city will also be opening up the Emergency Operations Center to help coordinate city services throughout the New Year’s celebrations.

Please follow us on Twitter for the most up to date public safety information, Seattle DOT for any traffic impacts, and the Seattle Office for Emergency Management for any citywide information.
