Edmonds police gear up for their centennial

EDMONDS -- Police officers and employees in Edmonds are selling collectibles commemorating the department's upcoming centennial.
The Edmonds Police Department and the Edmonds Historical Museum have been working together the past few months planning centennial events and displays.
The details are being worked out, Edmonds police Sgt. Mike Blackburn said.
Officers have been raising donations within the department to pay for a centennial mural inside the police station.
The mural would be a historical portrait of the museum building, from back when it housed the cop shop, with a vintage police cruiser parked out front.
The mural is planned for the back wall of the police station's main internal staircase. The space was chosen because it's evenly split between the patrol and administrative parts of the building, Blackburn said.
That part of the station is secured, meaning the public could view the mural only during special events or if they were inside the station for another reason.
People in the community spotted officers and other police employees toting the centennial commemorative items and asked if they could buy them, Blackburn said.
The items include coffee cups, travel mugs, water bottles, glass steins and reusable grocery bags featuring designs of Edmonds police patches and badges.
They are available for purchase during normal business hours at the police station, 250 5th Ave. North, Edmonds.
The centennial later is expected to include a police-themed display at the museum and a police station open house.
