Sequim has a new police chief.
Steve Burkett, Sequim city manager, announced Bill Dickinson of Tacoma, as chief Monday morning, saying Dickinson was the best-qualified and fit for Sequim.
“Bill not only has the experience required to excel at the Chief’s job in Sequim, but more importantly possesses leadership values and an approach to public service that is consistent with my values, standards and expectations,” Burkett said.
Dickinson is set to start Tuesday, Sept. 7.
He’ll make $93,000 a year, which falls in the middle of the solicited $80,00-$106,000 salary.
