Update on Edmonds

 k9 hobbs







Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow… Edmonds PD Patrol K9 Hobbs didn’t seem to mind the winter weather at Christmas time… we are not sure how he feels about the reindeer antlers though.

By the time Christmas rolled around, our lunch room looked like the biggest desert buffet ever! The treats people brought in to tell us “thank you” was amazing. We truly do have an amazingly supportive community.

Is this really the same “reindeer”, we mean dog pictured above? It is, and K9 Hobbs has been on fire recently (not literally, he’ actually a cool cat)! K9 Hobbs has been finding the bad guys all over South Snohomish County the last couple of months.

Oh what we won’t do for a good cause…and the chance to beat Lynnwood and Mountlake Terrace PD in a competition. Sergeant Hawley wore his best (or worst, depending on how you look at it) ugly sweater to compete in the My Edmonds News contest. My Edmonds News was going to donate to the charity of the winners choice.










EPD was out in full force for this years “Shop With A Cop” at the Lynnwood Target store. We had a great time with the kids and they got to pick out some really great gifts to brighten their holiday season!

After 32 years of law enforcement service Officer Brad Paulson retired. That’s a long career and we thank him for his dedicated service.












We said goodbye to Officer Paulson and hello to Ashley Dawson, the new Social Worker. Ashley is a part-time employee at EPD. Her hours are split between our agency and Lynnwood PD. Ashley will be focusing on homelessness and drug addiction services.

Speaking of new faces…Here are two more! Jocelyn Giammalva and Ashley James were both hired as new police officers. They are anxiously awaiting their time at the police academy, which is coming up in early 2018.










We did good, really, really good. Every three years we go through an accreditation process, overseen by the Washington State Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs. This is a very tedious process. It involves meeting hundreds of best practice standards. We came out with flying colors (just like last time). We are very proud of this accomplishment and the fact that EPD is such a top notch agency.














This is Bailey. Bailey had a great time running around our office, meeting new people and just being a dog. Unfortunately, we didn’t know who Bailey was for several hours because Bailey had no tags or microchip! We all had fun together, but we really want to get your pet back to you ASAP, so please chip them or have their city dog license tags on them.










We had a pretty big milestone this year. Sergeant Jones has been with us for 35 years!

In October, we spent the day at the Northgate Red Robin to raise money for Special Olympics. Tip-A-Cop was a great event and we are looking forward to next year!
