The following is a statement from Acting Police Chief Jim Lawless:
To the Edmonds Community:
The time has come for us all to look towards what is next for the Edmonds Police Department and move forward.
The mayor will be conducting a national search for the next chief of police. It is my belief that the smoothest transition possible is what is needed for the department and the community to begin to heal.
I will forever be grateful that for the past year-plus, I have had the honor and privilege to lead the amazing women and men of this regionally respected law enforcement agency.
