HOQUIAM, Wash. - The attached presentation for law enforcement/ fire/ dispatch will be in the Hoquiam City Council Chambers on Monday, June 24th in conjunction with the regular City Council Meeting starting at 1800 hours (workshop) prior to the regular Council meeting at 1900 hours.
As there are no pending criminal charges with the death of the suspect, this is a unique opportunity to review the investigation regarding this critical incident. Usually a presentation of this nature would not be possible.
We believe this will be informative as to the impact such an event has on an agency, the regional law and fire partners as well as the training, equipment and resources needed to respond to such situations. As I have said before, basically one man with a gun brought our area to a standstill for over 20-hours (not to mention the subsequent investigation and impact to involved personnel).
The work of the Region III Critical Incident Investigation Team (CIIT) was very detailed as they documented every available aspect of the event.
Please distribute the flyer to your personnel, politicians or members of the public who would be interested in this program.
