Mukilteo Police Chaplain Pat Ward Retires

On February 1, 2020, longstanding Mukilteo Police Chaplain Pat Ward retired after more than 16 years of selfless service to the Mukilteo Police Department and the entire Mukilteo Community. There will be a reception on February 21, 2020, at Mukilteo City Hall, located at 11930 Cyrus Way, Mukilteo, WA 98275, for anyone wishing to thank her for her many years of dedicated service or to just wish her well. The event will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Pat Ward began serving as a chaplain after completing the Fire and Police Chaplains Academy at the Criminal Justice Training Center in October 2004 and immediately began serving as a volunteer chaplain for the Mukilteo Fire Department. In July 2011, Pat left the fire department and began serving with the Mukilteo Police Department.

Since that time she has responded to countless requests by the police department to respond to a multitude of situations that necessitated a chaplain’s presence. She has touched the lives of so many in the community and her contribution to the Mukilteo Police Department is beyond measure. Pat Ward was ordained as a minster on May 26, 2018.

“You cannot replace Pat Ward. Her absence will leave an irreplaceable void, but I am happy that she has made the decision to pursue personal goals and spend more time with her family. On behalf of the Mukilteo Police Department we wish her the absolute best in all of her future endeavors”, said Mukilteo Police Chief Cheol Kang.
