Faced with an unprecedented shortage of officers, the Seattle Police Department (SPD) is actively recruiting recipients of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival Status (DACA) to become cops. It’s possible thanks to bipartisan legislation that went into effect on June 6.

Senate Bill 6157 allows DACA recipients to apply for civil service jobs across Washington State. These include police officer, firefighter and sheriff’s deputies. Prior to the legislation, they were prohibited from holding these positions.

The bill is getting renewed scrutiny after a LinkedIn job application post from the SPD for DACA recipients started receiving attention. The ad explains the SPD “is now accepting applications from DACA recipients! Apply Now!”

Seattle is not alone in hiring DACA recipients for police positions. Earlier in the year, the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) made the same move. They even altered its written firearms policy to allow DACA cops to carry a firearm while off-duty.

With new guidance from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), DACA recipients are allowed to carry firearms and ammunition if it’s part of official law enforcement officer duties. But any local agency hiring DACA recipients must reform their gun policies to make it clear that their DACA employees can carry firearms.


The Seattle Police Department is now welcoming illegal immigrants to join its depleted force as staffing levels dip to lows not seen since 1957.

"It's rather ironic, you've got people who are in this country illegally who are now going to potentially be enforcing the law," Seattle radio host Jason Rantz remarked on "Fox & Friends" Tuesday.

The SPD announced last week they are accepting applications from Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients after state legislation allowing "Dreamers" to apply for civil service positions went into effect in Washington.

The number of sworn officers in the SPD has plunged to 913 compared to over 1,400 in 2017, according to the department. Additionally, there are currently only 424 patrol officers and 280 eligible for retirement.

Rantz said the police are in "dire need" of support due to the fallout from liberal policies.

Recruiting illegals to be police officers what could possibly go wrong?

Criminals enforcing the law sounds like to drug cartels in Mexico. Having people that have no connections, care and loyalty to a place they are supposed to enforce the law is going to lead to disaster.

Considering DACA recipients were brought here as children and need to be in enrolled in school or be in military I would say that qualifies as a connection.
 
Public service should be a way to citizenship. If this is how Seattle wants to solve their staffing issues that's up to their politicians and their voting citizens as long as it doesn't go against the constitution in any way.
 
Make sure to do it illegally so you can get tax payer funded credit cards.
- You'r society is so racialy divided, that i feel for the brothers in uniform.
You get grifters from both side trying their hands on you.

And the most coward criminals in the world.
 
Police in Seattle were never defunded and actually they got big raises , but keep falling for propaganda
Ok dipshit.....This is why you're a joke

People that got hired got the "raises" ... starting in 2022..

Officers have been leaving the department in record numbers since 2020, when the city council defunded the police by 18% (though it promised to cut 50%).
Council members demonized officers, stayed silent during physical attacks by Antifa and other agitators, and one council member, Teresa Mosqueda, even defended a man who threatened to murder cops. Add to the mix a COVID vaccine mandate, a lack of contract, and Democrat reforms that favor criminals and officers had enough.

SEATTLE — After several hours of debate today and in previous days, the Seattle City Council on Monday voted 7-1 to approve a controversial spending plan that will reduce funding to the Seattle Police Department by 14 percent for the remainder of 2020.

The council's budget plan, however, is far below the 50 percent reduction that some members had lobbied for and community groups had demanded.

It is unfortunate Council has refused to engage in a collaborative process to work with the Mayor, Chief Best, and community members to develop a budget and policies that respond to community needs while accounting for – not just acknowledging – the significant labor and legal implications involved in transforming the Seattle Police Department," the statement said.

Durkan had proposed cuts worth $20 million to the police budget, and the council went along with that plan while adding in an additional $2.9 million in spending reductions. That means the city's remaining budget for 2020 is $170 million.

The budget reduction could affect as many as 100 officers through layoffs and attrition — an action supported by demonstrators who have marched in the city following the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis but strongly opposed by the mayor and police chief.

Seattle currently has about 1,400 police officers and the reductions that the council considered for a final vote fell far short of the 50 percent cut to the department that many Black Lives Matter protesters are seeking.

The council's plan also calls for removing officers from the city Navigation Team, which removes homeless camps, a reduction of the Harbor Patrol, SWAT, Public Affairs and Horse Unit.

The council can only restrict funding for certain positions through the proviso process. But Best still has wide latitude on who she hires to run the department.
Some council members have said the initial cuts are a first step to more sweeping reductions and a rethinking of law enforcement in Seattle.

Rantz: Seattle councilmember defends ‘kill yourselves’ threat to cops at protest​

At this weekend’s Seattle protest, which turned violent at times, a Seattle city councilmember said the anger from a man threatening to murder cops was justified.

On Saturday night, in what appeared to be a coordinated effort, several local far-left politicians descended upon Capitol Hill to taunt the Seattle Police Department’s effort to maintain peace.

Councilmember Teresa Mosqueda live-streamed portions of the protest and when she heard violent rhetoric from those around her, she didn’t just downplay them — she claimed their anger is valid.
 
Dying country, doing dying country shit.

No this is why you’re the dipshit
“Tellingly, not a single sworn officer has lost their job or pay due to budget constraints. In fact, the department has consistently received more funding for hiring than it can spend. And yet, the myth that the police department was defunded persists, partly because budgets are convoluted and boring, and because it's an easy answer for the police departments' woes.”

Rantz is also a known liar and hack, stop falling for propaganda.

Do you seriously hear DACA and think of them as criminal illegal aliens akin to Mexican cartels ? These people came to the country before they were 16 and have been here at least 17 years now. They receive renewals to stay here and work every two years so we know they're likely productive and law abiding.
