Dave Tarbet has been appointed as the permanent Chief of Police for the City of Redmond. Dave Tarbet has been acting as Interim Police Chief while the City searched for a replacement. Mayor George Endicott says Tarbet did an outstanding job as Acting Chief and he's got the community back up to prove it. “We got emails, you know unsolicited stuff from officers, from citizens, from his peers. Everyone saying Dave is just first class. It just makes me feel good to know that he has such a good reputation. We know the whole community’s with him." Mayor Endicott says after three years on the force, Tarbet has earned the respect of the Department. The swearing in will be at next Tuesdays' City Council.
