Second-in-Command From Chief’s Former DepartmentApril 23rd, 2008 by josh farley
Looks like the Poulsbo Police Department‘s newly created post of deputy chief will go to Shawn Delaney, a police lieutenant from Visalia, California.
Sound familiar? He comes from the same department as Dennis Swiney, the Poulsbo department’s new chief.
According to a memo sent out to police department staff that Swiney shared with me, 17 candidates applied for the new position, which included current Poulsbo cops and out-of-area ones.
Delaney, who began his law enforcement career in 1984 as a patrol officer, has been a field training officer, investigator on Visalia’s burglary team, an administrative sergeant, part of the narcotics unit, and more.
