Mukilteo Police Names 2nd Grader, Lev Morgan, as Chief for a Day

(MUKILTEO, WA) On Thursday, August 18th 2016, the Mukilteo Police Department in partnership with law enforcement agencies, the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Commission (WSCJTC), hospitals, and others, will enrich the lives of children who have been diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition. We will provide these children with a day of fun they will never forget and become a part of their precious lives. It is our mission to help these children, and their families, to forget about their illness if only for one day.

The “little Chiefs and Sheriffs” will be transported by police motorcade to the WSCJTC. In addition to each child having a hand-tailored uniform from their sponsoring agency, each child will be sworn in as “Chief” or “Sheriff” for the day by Governor or his designee. After the swearing in ceremony, the new Chiefs and Sheriffs will then experience outside presentations made by law enforcement agencies.

The Mukilteo Police Department, in partnership with the Mukilteo Police Foundation, will be sponsoring Lev Morgan, a second-grader at Mukilteo Elementary School, who will participate in the Chief for a Day program. Lev was two and a half years-old when he was taken to Children’s Hospital in Seattle and diagnosed with leukemia. Lev was almost 6 months away from finishing his initial protocol when the family received a phone call from the oncologist that they found the cancer cells in Lev’s spinal fluid. On this 5th birthday, Lev started his second protocol of about 7-8 months of intense chemo rounds completed by 2 weeks of cranium radiation, and then about a year and a half of oral low dose chemo.

This time, Lev did complete his protocol; however, during his treatment Lev’s bone marrow and spinal fluid were tested continuously. The bone marrow tests came back clear, but spinal fluid tests came back with some abnormal cells. After further tests, it was discovered that leukemia came back in the spinal fluid again. Lev’s next protocol was a bone marrow transplant. Luckily, Lev’s older brother was a complete match. In April 2015 Lev received his new bone marrow. Presently, the entire family is working hard to help Lev recover and have a happy childhood.

A fundraiser will be held on May 14th 2016 at the Harbour Pointe Golf Course Clubhouse (11817 Harbour Pointe Boulevard) in Mukilteo. The event is scheduled to begin at 6 pm and will include a live band. Tickets are $20 each at the door and once inside you will have your chance to win some fantastic and exclusive raffle prizes!!

Felony Assault Suspect Arrested

(MUKILTEO, WA) On April 7th 2016, at approximately 5:01 PM, Mukilteo Police officers responded to the report of a felony assault in the 11700 block of the Mukilteo Speedway.

When officers arrived, they found a female lying on the sidewalk. The female was bleeding from an apparent stab wound in the lower back. Officers discovered the female escaped from a vehicle driven by a male while they were stopped at a red light at the location. The male and the female were arguing in the vehicle when the male assaulted the female with a knife. The female was able to flee from the vehicle before collapsing.

The female was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Based on the description given by the female, the detectives were able to identify the male through a criminal database search.

On April 14th 2016, at approximately 4:00 PM, law enforcement officers with the Violent Offender Task Force located the male (suspect) in north Seattle at his place of employment. The male was arrested without incident and transported to the Mukilteo Police Department where he was interviewed by Detectives.

The male was transported to the Snohomish County Jail pending formal arraignment on Assault charges.

New Police Chief Invites Public to “Coffee with a Cop”
Informal gathering intended to build relationships between police and community

(MUKILTEO, WA) Mukilteo’s new police chief is inviting the public to join him and other members of the Mukilteo Police Department for coffee on Monday, November 9th. The “Coffee with a Cop” event is intended to create a neutral space for conversations and relationship-building between law enforcement officers and the community.

Local residents and business owners are invited to join Chief Chuck Macklin and other Police Department team members at the Starbucks near the Police Station. Coffee with a Cop provides a unique opportunity for community members to ask questions and learn more about the department’s work in Mukilteo’s neighborhood.

“Too many of our contacts with residents take place during tough, emotional situations, and we don’t get the chance to build a positive relationship between officers and the community,” said Chief Chuck Macklin. “That’s why we’re hosting this event, we hope that community members will feel comfortable to ask questions, bring concerns, or simply get to know our officers.”

Coffee with a Cop is a national initiative supported by The United States Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services. Similar events are being held across the county, as local police departments strive to make lasting connections with the communities they serve.

“We know that some of our residents are hesitant to approach an officer on the street to try and build a relationship, so that’s why we hope folks will come join us and get to know us better,” said Officer Colt Davis, the City’s Crime Prevention Officer. “We hope we can build our relationship with the community one cup of coffee at a time, donuts are optional.”

Mukilteo PD Assists Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office in Locating Burglary Suspect

(MUKILTEO, WA)  The Mukilteo Police Department assisted the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO) in locating a suspect in a residential burglary that occurred in the 12700 block of Maplewood Avenue in unincorporated Snohomish County.

The incident began around 10:50 AM when a female resident confronted a male who broke into her residence. The male fled on foot and SCSO requested Mukilteo Officers respond to help assist with containment. The male was last seen running into the golf course, near Endeavour Elementary school. SCSO advised Endeavour to go into “lockdown” due to officer activity in the area.

At about 12:20 PM, a witness advised Officers that they possibly saw the male suspect near an apartment complex in the 12300 block of Harbour Pointe Boulevard. The male was contacted by Mukilteo Detectives and taken into police custody. The male was transferred to the custody of SCSO who booked him into the Snohomish County Jail.

Schools in the Mukilteo area were advised and the “lockdown” was lifted.
