Back on March 21st we received word that Everett Police Chief Jim Scharf, was going to postpone his retirement from March 31st until the internal investigation into the shooting of Niles Meservey by Everett Police Officer Troy Meade back on June 10th of 2009  was completed. I saw chief Scharf at today’s Everett City Council meeting and he mentioned to me that he only had seven and a half days left on the job. I asked him if that meant the internal investigation into the Troy Meade case was completed and he said no. I asked him when it would be done and he said it would be finished when it was finished. He then headed into an executive session with the Everett City Council about a matter of potential litigation that no one wished to discuss. Deputy Chief Kathy Atwood has already been named as the new chief and has reportedly been running the day-to-day operations of the Everett Police Department. My guess is there will be an announcement coming very soon that the Meade investigation is over.
