New Civilian Director Seeks to Restore Seattle Police’s Reputation

Pierce Murphy is the new civilian director for Seattle Police Department's Office of Professional Accountability. Both SPD and OPA have been under tight scrutiny since a Department of Justice's 2011 investigation found evidence of biased policing and unlawful use of force. Murphy says his first task is restoring credibility for the OPA. Marcie Sillman talks with Murphy.
