One unmistakable success story has evolved, with example after example of the superb leadership and focus by LFP Police Chief Steve Sutton.

The program was emceed by Emily Gallagher. After opening remarks by Myra Gamburg, the keynote speaker was Darwin Roberts, Washington State Deputy Attorney General.

Chief Sutton has implemented his plan for building communication with Lake Forest Park residents deliberately, consistently, and successfully for their individual benefit and the welfare of the entire community.

Remarks were made by Aimee Minor, Principal of Lake Forest Park Elementary; Ed Pearson, President of LFP Rotary; and Her Honor Linda Portnoy, Judge, Lake Forest Park Municipal Court.

Linda Strandberg sang and Jean Bryant recited an original poem in honor of Chief Sutton.
