  1. We certainly have a great police department. Amazing to see all that happens in our small town. We certainly do not want to grow in population.

  2. Why does this listing of police calls equate to Edmonds having a great police department?
    Why does this list of police calls seem amazing? What metrics are being applied?
    Why does this list of police calls mean we don’t want more people to move here ?
    I also wonder why The Beacon Newspaper makes cutesy (humorous?!) headings when they publish their”Police Blotter” ? Why do they make fun of shoplifting, burglaries, domestic disputes and drunk driving?
    I can’t help to wonder about the “fall down drunk” woman laying next to her running car on August 2 !
    How did that running car get to be where it was ?! I wonder if everyone would have been offered the same “escort” to their residence that she was afforded ?!

  3. What happened at the 7-11 at the corner of 238th and Hwy 99 on the evening of 7/30/20? There is no mention of it here but I was coming home just after sunset on the 30th and there were several police cars with all their lights flashing.

    1. Likely this one — this is the address of the 7-11:8100 block 236th Street Southwest: A man who was angry with a woman punched holes in the wall.

        1. You are correct — 238th is the address. Perhaps they were looking for someone from that incident at the 7-11 since it was so close

    2. Edmonds Police and South County Fire units responded to a medical emergency outside the location.
