DON'T SEE THIS EVERY DAY...

It was a busy March for EPD. Several high profile cases made the news...

Mission Accomplished!

bullet triangle glass blueSeveral years ago, we realized the shooting simulator we have was not going to last much longer. This is a valuable training tool for officers, as it allows them to be put into realistic decision making scenarios. The Edmonds Police Foundation took up the cause and began fundraising. In March, the Hazel Miller Foundation, a local charity, donated the remainder needed for the project ($43,192).
