Seattle Police Chief Resigns After City Approves Plan To Defund Department, Axe 100 Cops

• by Tyler Durden

While the cuts may be largely symbolic - aside from the 100 or so of the city's 1,400 police officers ,who will be laid off or not replaced through attrition - the move, which also reduced Best's $285,000 annual salary, was enough to make her leave the force after 28 years with SPD.

Best, who in addition to trying to maintain order during the BLM protests while operating under a ban on tear gas, pepper spray and flash bangs, has been dealing with protesters showing up to her Snohomish County house. She also says she hasn't been included in any city council discussions regarding budget cuts, according to KING5.
