Kirkpatrick Announces Retirement Date

SPOKANE, Wash. - Spokane Police Chief Anne Kirkpatrick today has announced that she will retire from the City of Spokane effective Jan. 2. 

"The new year provides an opportunity to start fresh," Chief Kirkpatrick said.  "I have been honored to serve as the Chief of Police, and I thank SPD's employees, the City's elected leadership, and most importantly, the citizens for this opportunity."

The Chief joined the City in September of 2006, following a national search.  She's looking to the next chapter in her life and plans to spend more time with family.

HERE IS KIRKPATRICK'S EMAIL TO MAYOR VERNER:

Dear Mayor Verner:

The top of the year is always a great time to start afresh with new directions and goals, so I have made a decision to make January 2, 2012 my retirement date.

I have been blessed to be a police officer for almost 30 years and I am grateful to you, to all the citizens of Spokane, and most especially to the members of the Spokane Police Department for giving me the honor of being Chief of Police.

Spokane is definitely a City on the Move, so I know it has a very bright future.

Respectfully,

Anne E. Kirkpatrick
