Sergeant Sean Whitcomb

In my seventeen years with the Seattle Police Department, I have patrolled Greenlake, Ravenna and the University District by car, by foot and by bike. I have worked with chemically dependent people in King County Drug Court, served as a Public Information Officer and supervised a squad of officers at the West Precinct. Since 2008, I have had the honor of being the department’s Public Affairs Director.
I have a Speech Communications degree from the University of Washington, which I've put to use blending my love of public service and public relations. I feel like I've come full circle and get to do a job that I truly enjoy.
I enjoy hiking, history, vampire fiction and Nintendo.
