That was fast.
One week ago, East Precinct Advisory Council members were introduced to Mike Edwards, the man who would take command of the East Precinct since Captain Ron Wilson announced his retirement. Then, yesterday, Captain Edwards was transferred to another command. As for the next soon-to-be Captain, that’s Pierre Davis.
“I just wanted to tell you that it has be a real pleasure meeting with the members of EastPAC and having the opportunity to talk to you about the needs of the community and how we as a Department can try to meet those needs. I looked forward to seizing the opportunity to work closely with you but unfortunately it was not to be. I truly do believe that we are all in this together and that success will only come through collaboration. If the opportunity presents itself in the future you can rest assured that I will welcome it. I appreciate your passion and love for the community and city at large as well as the men and women who make up our police department,” Captain Edwards wrote to EastPAC members.
Lieutenant Bryan Grenon, who regularly attends EastPAC meetings, will remain Operations Lieutenant of the East Precinct.
EastPAC is a volunteer council that provides a forum for the community to engage with police and be updated about crime, safety and political issues in the East Precinct and Seattle. All community is invited and encouraged to join monthly meetings.
