Two new patrol officers joined the Issaquah Police Department in the past month.
At a ceremony June 3, new-hire Michael Lucht was sworn in to the department. The four-and-a-half-year veteran of the Jamestown Police Department of North Dakota moved for the job in Issaquah.
“I just wanted to get some place a little warmer,” Lucht said. “I also like how this area is so close to the outdoors.”

Newly confirmed Police Chief Scott Behrbaum does not expect to make a lot of changes to the department anytime soon.
After serving 17 years with the Issaquah Police Department, and the past seven of those as patrol commander under retired Chief Paul Ayers, Behrbaum said he believes in the ongoing direction of the department.
“I’m excited for the appointment,” he said. “I’m really proud of our department and the positive impact it has established in our community.”
