by Northlake News staff
KENMORE--Sgt. Cliff Sether was named the City of Kenmore's first Chief of Police late last week.
A seven year veteran of the King County Sheriff's Office, Sether will supervise nine full-time patrol officers dedicated to the city.
Sether, a former U.S. Coast Guard Special Agent who did internal and drug investigations, was excited about the assignment. "I look forward to working with the citizens and helping to make our Kenmore police department the best it can be," he said.
Most recently assigned to the Sheriff's North Precinct in Kenmore, Sether was chosen by Kenmore City Manager Steve Anderson, Assistant City Manager Al Locke and KCSO Major Robin Fenton from a field of three other candidates.
Kenmore is one of ten cities, including Woodinville and Shoreline, that contract with the Sheriff's office for police protection. The contract begins Aug. 31 and runs three years.
