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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
