  • Sedro-Woolley Police Chief Doug Wood announces Early Retirement
    • Doug Wood began his career in Sedro-Woolley on January 1, 1982 as a police officer. Through his 32 year career, he held virtually all positions in the department including the position of chief. Doug was appointed chief by Mayor Dillon in May of 2005 and before that served as lieutenant for six years and sergeant for six years. “Doug Wood has done an excellent job leading the SWPD, especially through the hard economic times. I have relied on his judgment and want to thank him for a lifetime of service to the people of Sedro-Woolley,” stated Mayor Anderson. Mayor Anderson also stated, “I am going to miss Doug’s good advice on issues beyond the police department; he is a valuable sounding board for the community.”
Many thanks go out to Tony Splane and Thomas Storrs as they retire from years of service on the City Council!
