A security and traffic-control firm that hires off-duty Seattle police officers is suing the city of Seattle for reportedly encroaching on its work at CenturyLink Field.
Seattle’s Finest Police Security and Traffic Control, established in 2002, provides off-duty police to work as security and flaggers to local businesses in the Seattle area. Off-duty police officers agree to work such jobs and are paid by the hour.
The suit filed July 26 says the city government recently denied Raleigh Evans, an 18-year Seattle police officer and co-owner of Seattle’s Finest, permission to continue his work scheduling security officers for CenturyLink events, despite his long-running work doing so.
