Thank You 12s!

The fans that came out in force today for the historic Seahawk celebration downtown were fantastic.  They braved the cold weather and long waits before they were able to celebrate loudly as their team, the Super Bowl champions, Seattle Seahawks, were honored with the parade down Fourth Avenue and a rally at Century Link Stadium.

Fans and officers alike enjoyed themselves as everyone was loud and respectful.    On behalf of the Seattle Police Department and all of the many law enforcement agencies working these events, thank you!

Our partner agencies included the Washington State Patrol, King County Sheriff’s Office, and Pierce County Sheriff,  and the police departments from Lynwood, Everett, Tacoma Issaquah, Kirkland, Edmonds, Bremerton and Lakewood. We could not have done this event without them!

As you make your way home tonight, officers will be out there directing traffic to make sure everyone gets to their destination safely. Please be patient.   Wow, what a day!
