A Note from the Chief of Police - November 1, 2019

Posted on November 1, 2019 at 2:05 PM by Joshua Stecker

Mayor Kuhn asked that I provide some clarifying information to you.

There has been a recent allegation that the Mayor of Gig Harbor has unfettered access to the police department, including files and/or items of evidence.  What is true is that every Mayor and City Administrator has had a master key to the Civic Center, including the police department offices.  Nobody – even the Mayor – can have unescorted access to the police department without having first undergone a background check and at no time does the Mayor have access to the property room where items of evidence are maintained.

Thank you.

Kelly Busey
Chief of Police
Gig Harbor Police Department
