Former Lacey police commander new chief at Evergreen

July 11, 2006

Ed Sorger, a 35-year veteran of the Lacey Police Department has been appointed chief of police at The Evergreen State College. Sorger, who served in numerous roles with Lacey Police, has credentials that include the FBI National Academy for police administrators and an Executive Law Enforcement certification from the Washington Criminal Justice Training Commission.

"Coming to Evergreen is a new chapter of my life that I’m very excited about…I’m ready to use my background and experiences to manage a new police agency at a college campus that is like a small city in many ways," Sorger says.

Sorger says he will continue to strengthen relationships with other local law enforcement agencies and put energy into community oriented policing on and around the college’s 1000 acre campus.

Sorger is a native of Thurston County and is in his third term as a member of the Yelm Community School Board.
