The Hoquiam Police Department has selected this year’s CHIEF FOR A DAY.
Evan is a 12-year old from Grays Harbor who has faced significant medical challenges his entire life.
With his positive attitude and strong family support, Evan attends school, enjoys sports, old cars and collects fitted baseball hats– over 100 so far!
Evan enjoys music on his I-Pad and likes to go to sporting events to cheer on his favorite teams, such as the Seahawks and Huskies.
Evan has been chosen as the Hoquiam Police Department’s CHIEF FOR A DAY 2016; he will join 32 other “Chiefs” and “Sheriffs” from around the state at the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Commission’s police academy in Burien on August 18, 2016.
This statewide event celebrates the lives of children who have been diagnosed with life-threatening or chronic medical conditions.
Evan and his family will visit the police department, be sworn-in at a City Council meeting, tour city facilities, take a tug boat ride from the Hoquiam Riverfront, visit the police academy and ride in the lead patrol car at the Logger’s Playday parade in September.
Evan will be issued his very own police chief uniform and 2016 CHIEF FOR A DAY commemorative badge in his honor.
The Hoquiam Police Department is partnering with other agencies and local businesses to provide support and gifts for Evan and his family at this special event.
Please help to make this day extra special as we hope to raise at least $1,000 to purchase items Evan and his family can use.
PLEASE CONTACT Chief Jeff Myers at 360-532-0892 ext. 105 or Officer Phil High at ext. 289 if you want to help; you can email them at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
