Arlington Mourns the Passing of Retired Police Chief Steve Robinson

It is with great sadness that we report retired Arlington Police Chief Steve Robinson passed away peacefully this last weekend after his long struggle with Alzheimer's disease.

Chief Robinson started his law enforcement career with the Tukwila Police Department in 1973, working his way up through the ranks to Assistant Chief, before accepting the job as Arlington's Top Cop in 1990.  Chief Robinson retired from the Arlington Police Department in 2001, but his positive influence and impact can still be seen throughout the City of Arlington and Arlington Police Department to this day.

Steve was a dedicated husband, father and public servant showing his commitment to the community beyond policing as an active member of the Rotary Club of Arlington, Smokey Point Community Church and served as a chairman with the Snohomish County Children's Commission.

There will be a memorial service for Chief Robinson at 1:00 PM, Friday September 28, 2018 at the Smokey Point Community Church in Arlington, WA.  The service will be attended by family and is open to the public. Smokey Point Community Church is located at 17721 Smokey Point Blvd, Arlington, WA 98223.
In remembrance of Steve and his imprint on the City of Arlington, Mayor Barb Tolbert has directed flags at all City buildings to be lowered to half-staff on Friday, September 28, 2018. Flags will remain at half-staff until close of business or sunset on September 28, 2018.

Crews will also repair the railroad at 204th Street NE near 67th Avenue NE on the morning of September 19, however, the road will not be closed and flaggers will be on site to keep traffic flowing.

The goal is to get the work done at both locations before the morning commute.
Post Middle School Students Learn about 9/11 with Visit to Memorial
Retired Deputy Fire Chief Tom Cooper speaks to Post Middle School eighth-graders about 9/11

It's been 17 years, but for many first responders the 9/11 terrorist attacks are as fresh as if they happened yesterday, and the stories of the heroes that day are as impactful today as there were on Sept. 11, 2001. This is what firefighters at Station 46 hope Post Middle School eighth-graders take away from their visit today to the Arlington 9/11 memorial at the station.

"This was a huge event for our country, similar to the JFK assassination for my parents' generation," said Acting Fire Chief, Dave Kraski. "I want the middle schoolers to understand the magnitude of what happened on that day. There were hundreds of firefighters and other first responders who gave their lives so others could live."

In 2011, four Arlington firefighters traveled to New York to transport back a piece of the World Trade Center. Through community donations, a 9/11 memorial was opened at Station 46 in 2014. Students watched a presentation and were able to touch a piece of the World Trade Center as they listened to stories of what happened on that day. 

"It was pretty cool that the firefighters entered the buildings to help others escape," said eighth-grader Chris Kurtzer. "They're definitely heroes."

The memorial is open 24 hours a day and is located at 137 N. Macleod in Arlington.

Boy Scout Troop 178 Volunteers at Arlington Cemetery
Eight boys with Arlington Boy Scout Troop 178 and two scout leaders worked at the Arlington Cemetery on Tuesday,  September 11 for two and one-half hours, cleaning headstones, pulling weeds, and sweeping walkways. The troop does a couple community service projects each month.

"The boys like to do anything outdoors and active. September 11 was the perfect day to volunteer at the cemetery," said  Julie Urie, Scout mom.  City cemetery coordinator Tawnya Post thanked the boys and noted that "one of the greatest gifts you can give is your time."

Thank you Scouts!
