Police Blotter

Editor’s Update: This afternoon the City of Everett provided some clarification on the Memorial Fund: The city is covering as much of the memorial cost as legally possible, but there are some costs government entities are not allowed to spend public funds on. That is where the private sector can be a support. The City is working to ensure we can respect the family’s wishes to remember and honor the life of Officer Dan Rocha. Private sector donations will directly support Officer Rocha’s family as well as cover a portion of the memorial the city is not legally able to fund.
