Officer Profile Kaia Persson

Officer Kaia Persson is one of our newest hires. She was sworn in on June 12, 2020 – what she describes as “the proudest day of my life.” Kaia, a former EMT, says she was drawn to police work because she wants to help. Whether it’s responding to 911 calls or building trust between officers and her transgender community, Kaia said she’s confident the SPD can be a part of a public safety system that provides Seattle with the services it expects and wants. “I got into this job because I want to do the things that the city is talking about doing, about being a partner with the community.”
