b'Goodbye, JanI have some great news I want to share with you allafter 30 years of service to the Des Moines Police Department, the citizens of Des Moines and the critters of Des Moines, I have decided to retire on June 15, 2019!I am born and raised in the Burien/Normandy Park/Des Moines area, so I am not going anywhere! I am moving from my place in Kent back to Des MoinesI just bought a home on North Hill, not far from the Police Academy. I plan to continue teaching dog obedience classes here in Des Moines, and also in Normandy Park and Kent. I am very involved in the Rotary Club of Des Moines and Normandy Park and look forward to having more time to devote to our charitable projects. I also raise, train and show dogs, so I am anxious to be able to attend more dog shows now!It has been an honor to be your Animal Care and Control Officer for all these years and to be working with an awesome group of folks at DMPD and in our other city departments as well. And I have also enjoyed working will all the wonderful law enforcement, fire staff, dispatch, records and others in agencies all over Washington and beyond!I will certainly miss seeing you all on a daily basis, but as mentioned, I am sure I will see you around town soon in my tank top, shorts and flip flops!BIG SMILEJAN 8D98 | DES MOINES CITY CURRENTS | SUMMER 2019'
