Mayor Kaemingk Announces News
Regarding the Brier Police Department

Mayor's Office Press Release

June 17, 2021

Mayor Dale Kaemingk announced today that because of the recent and unexpected news that Brier Police Chief Mike Catlett is going to retire soon, that he will be putting together an interim plan for Brier Police Department supervisory services. This upcoming change will require the City of Brier to reach out to local agencies for assistance, while the search for a new Chief takes place.

"This temporary support will provide the necessary supervision and back up for our own City of Brier Police Officers and other law enforcement professionals who serve here," said Mayor Kaemingk. "As always, our goal is to continue to provide a fast and effective response for all emergency Police services in our community."

Cooperation between jurisdictions is nothing new, as "Mutual Aid" agreements between local agencies have been going on now successfully for many years. Neighboring cities and other emergency organizations depend on each other often for support and cooperation, as we all seek to serve our citizen's well in South Snohomish County.

"We are hopeful that this temporary change in leadership will be brief and not interrupt the excellent Police service that we all appreciate and depend on," said Mayor Kaemingk. The Mayor in coordination with the entire Brier City Council and City staff will be actively working to fill this important leadership position.

Please feel free to contact me at City Hall if you have any questions or comments. My phone number is 425 775 5440 and my email address is

Brier Mayor Dale Kaemingk

Brier is a small, suburban, residential town located 15 miles north of Downtown Seattle, in Snohomish County. The population is approximately 6,300.

The City government consists of about 19 employees, working in three public services departments. Brier is 2.13 square miles with approximately 27 miles of streets and roads.

Throughout the City of Brier's history, development has resulted in an environment characterized by large homesites, wooded areas and semi-rural in nature.

The philosophy of the City is to continue to retain and maintain the basic, original, spacious and semi-rural wooded character of the areas and to remain relatively small, simple and intimate, with a minimum of regulation and taxation. It is intended that future development of Brier will be consistent and harmonious with the established pattern.

The overall goal of the city government is to preserve the existing character of The City of Brier as a single-family residential community, placing emphasis on the preservation of open space and natural landscape.

    Having access to a safe place to walk can be an obstacle for many people who want to be active outdoors. The Brier Walks program encourages residents of all abilities to use Brier Park's ADA-accessible walking path and to keep track of their distance (walked or run) as a means to prevent disease and injury. The walking path and program are the first of their kind in Brier, and were made possible with support from the Verdant Health Commission.
