About the Blotter

The SPD Blotter began in 2008 and is maintained by the staff of Seattle Police Department Public Affairs Office.

Our office is committed to providing police information in a variety of different ways. Our philosophy is to make every effort to keep the public informed to the best of our ability. We will do so in ways that are interesting and engaging. Our aim is nothing short of being the go to place for Seattle crime news.

Our Seattle Police Blotter and our Twitter accounts are updated regularly throughout the day with crime and news information.
