And Karen’s in the middle.
Snohomish bid farewell to now Captain Flood and welcomed Lt. Keith Rogers as our new Chief of Police effective today. John Flood was promoted to Captain and reassigned to oversee the sheriff’s office north and south precincts.
Karen and Captain Flood bonded when as mayor Karen promoted contracting our police services with the county and Flood was the first Chief of Police. That was an emotional time in January 2012, losing our independent police force, but it has proven a sound decision with both better service while saving $800,000 a year.
