See A Traffic Disruption? No, It Wasn’t The Prez, It Was “Chief For A Day”

Wednesday morning (Aug. 18) between 10am – 11am or so, if you saw a motorcade drive in to the Burien/Normandy Park area, be aware that no, it wasn’t the President (he left yesterday) – it was “Chief For A Day,” a law enforcement event that celebrates the lives of children with chronic illnesses.

The motorcade was bringing kids from Qwest Field to the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Commission, where they will be treated to a swearing-in ceremony, lunch with recruits, then participate in outside presentations made by law enforcement agencies including K-9 units, mounted patrol, SWAT, rifle units, a police helicopter and more.

The event will last until 3pm.

Here’s more info from the “Chief For A Day” website:

In partnership with local law enforcement agencies and hospitals, Chief For a Day is about celebrating the lives of children who have been diagnosed with a chronic illness. It is a celebration of life for all.

This year, selected children will be transported by police motorcade to the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Commission where they will be honored as “Chief For a Day.”

Public Safety Agencies, Hospitals, and an army of Volunteers make this day special by donating their time and talents to this worthy cause. Whether you are making a monetary donation or simply attending the celebration we welcome you to join us!
