Seattle has long been in need of a Cop Block branch, so myself and a few others have begun to get one up and running.
Police transparency is a vital aspect of their civil service to our fellow citizens, and one way to keep them accountable and far from opacity is to make sure they know they can be and are being filmed, photographed, and documented in any way and at any time.
From the murder of local Native woodcarver John T. Williams, to the daily harassment felt by the poor, the minorities, and the mentally ill; the people of Seattle are tired of police brutality, excessive force, and just plain old harassment and bullying.
Seattle Cop Block is just getting on our feet, and could use YOUR help.
Film the police. It is legal in WA, see here:
Anytime you see an interaction with the police, whether everything is going fine or not; record it. Be careful not to interfere with the officer. Send the footage to SeattleCopBlock@gmail.com, or contact us on Facebook or Twitter. We will share it, and anonymously if you wish.
If you would like to contribute a small donation to help us purchase promotional materials, SCB clothing, and recording equipment, you can donate to us here:
If you would like to be a part of a group patrol or event, Email us as well at
We thank you all for your hard work in keeping police accountable, and look forward to working with you all!
