New chief is all about community

I had the pleasure of meeting the new Chief of the Everett Police Department on June 21 during the futbol soccer camp at Walter Hall Park. He and the deputy chief were at the soccer camp, along with other police officers and a couple of Sheriff’s deputies.

The new chief is a very down-to-earth guy and has the community interest and involvement. I firmly believe that he the best person qualified for the job. Having said that, I know many of the other officers and higher ranking officers. They are all superb.

Chief Atwood did a tremendous job and her work was exemplary as well. We should all be thankful for the Everett Police Department. They are fair, professional and have the highest standards I have seen anywhere. I know, as I am a Citizen Volunteer for Everett PD.

Best wishes to Chief Templeman and the entire Police Department!
