LFP Police Chief Steve Sutton
is retiring Sept 2, 2019

Police Chief Steve Sutton has announced his upcoming retirement, effective September 2, 2019.

Chief Sutton began his law enforcement career as a Washington State Trooper in 1988. After more than 25 years of service with WSP, rising to the rank of Captain, he was appointed as Lake Forest Park Chief of Police in March 2013.

Chief Sutton’s communication with citizens has brought unmatched transparency to our community and improved trust in the Police Department. This was recognized when he received LFP GOV Watch’s award for Communicator of the Year in 2016.

Chief Sutton is a graduate of the FBI National Academy and has been successful in the development and sustainment of a modern, professional police department.

The Chief has garnered enormous respect from the regional law enforcement community and Lake Forest Park community as a whole. He will be particularly missed by the men and women of the LFP PD.

Community Reception with Police Chief Candidates

Immediately upon receiving the Chief’s retirement notice, the City began recruiting for its new Chief. 

An informal community reception with the candidates is scheduled for Tuesday, May 21, 2019, from 6:00 to 7:00pm, in the City Council Chambers. The public is invited to attend and meet the candidates for Chief of Police. Light refreshments will be served.
