New chief likes the island’s quiet nights

Recently sworn-in Bainbridge Island Police Chief Jon Fehlman recently shared a few thoughts about his new job with his hometown newspaper, the Santa Rosa Press Democrat.

Former Santa Rosa Police Lt. Jon Fehlman just became chief of the police department in Washington’s City of Bainbridge Island.

“I go a half block from my office and look across the water at Seattle,” he said. “My phone rings a lot during the day but my wife appreciates that it doesn’t ring at night.”

Though Jon misses Sonoma County, it helps that he can go to any number of the island’s nice restaurants and order a bottle of it.
