The U.S. Marshals Service Department of Justice for the Western District of Washington recently sent a letter to the City of Lakewood recognizing Lakewood Police Chief Mike Zaro for the police department’s role and participation in a regional task force aimed at reducing crime and increasing public safety.
In his letter Jacob Green, Acting United States Marshal for the Western District of Washington, noted that Lakewood police were part of a regional team that arrested 871 violent offenders and cleared 1,057 felony warrants in fiscal year 2018.
Green also said that because of the outstanding work of the task force, the agency was recognized by the U.S. Marshals Director’s Office in Washington, D.C. for the Director’s Honorary Award for Distinguished Task Force Group. This is one of the highest honors given to recognize employees and citizens who perform in an exemplary manner.
