7/1/22 Saying Goodbye to a Friend

PAPD Police Blotter 2

Yesterday, June 30, 2022 was Hoquiam Police Chief Jeff Myers last day on duty before his well deserved retirement.  Chief Myers served the citizens of Grays Harbor County and the law enforcement community in Washington for over 34 years.  

In addition to leading the highly professional and WASPC accredited Hoquiam Police Department for over 16 the years Chief Myers took on a larger than life role in WA State law enforcement leadership.   Chief Myers has served in an important position as the chair of the WA Criminal Justice Training Commission (CJTC) for a number of years.  In this position he developed strong professional relationships with legislators, police and sheriff's departments and their leaders,  a number of public and private organizations (including the Washington Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs -WASPC- and the Association of Washington Cities- AWC) and both the staff and the commission members of the CJTC.   This is just one of several leadership roles that Jeff took on during his distinguished career that worked to serve and benefit others.

During the challenging period of the last several years Jeff became an effective advocate for Washington law enforcement officers and for the profession of law enforcement in Washington.  Chief Myers' ability to work across the aisle and build bridges is legendary.    Law enforcement officers and communities across the State of Washington will be impacted in a positive way for many years to come due to Jeff's sustained work.

On June 29th the City of Hoquiam hosted a recognition and celebration for Chief Myers.   The community, fellow public safety professionals, friends and family and a cross section of leaders came to celebrate Jeff and to say thank you.  The Port Angeles Police Department, the Clallam County Sheriff's Office and the Sequim Police Department were amongst the many agencies that formally recognized and thanked Chief Myers.

Godspeed Chief Jeff Myers and thank you from all of us for your service!

Note: On Chief Myers last work day it is reported that he went out and provided traffic enforcement services to his community in the form of a number traffic stops that led to verbal warnings or citations.  Strong work Chief!
