DON'T SEE THIS EVERY DAY...
One of our Police Corporals watched as this driver took the SR 104 offramp to SR 99 too quickly. This was the result. Thankfully no one was injured.
It was a busy March for EPD. Several high profile cases made the news...
It all started with a SWAT Standoff near College Place Middle School. After several hours, the suspect finally gave up.
About a week later, this happened. This case was ruled accidental by the medical examiner.
Two days after that, an elderly man was hit by a car in the crosswalk at 224th ST SW on 76th AVE W.
We ended March with this: which could have been much worse. Our officers ended up inside this house as the suspect was lighting it on fire! Everyone was able to make it out safely and, arrest the suspect in the process.
On a much more upbeat note, EPD took part in some neat community events...
Say hello to “Team Copsicle”. Helping raise money for Special Olympics.
We read with kids at Chase Lake Elementary. Light Sabers were optional and we think only Master Yoda should have one anyway.
Detective Trykar put on an internet safety class for parents. If you missed it, check out our YouTube page.
Say hello to EPD’s newest officers!
We also just hired Marcus Stanley, a former police officer from Arizona. Stanley moved up here and has been a cross-fit instructor, in case you couldn’t tell from the t-shirt. He’s kind of into fitness…
We just got Officer Brian Poland back from months at the Police Academy. He now starts 14 weeks of additional field training.
Several 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).
