Elk Grove Police Department Chief Robert Lehner has announced his intent to retire in October after serving as the head of the EGPD for 8 years. Over the past couple of years we have had the opportunity to talk and correspond with Chief Lehner many times. He was always very accessible and responsive to questions.
Just over a week ago we reported that Chief Lehner was a finalist for the job of Chief of the City of Spokane Police Department. He was one of two finalists for the job. Earlier today it was announced the Mayor of Spokane made a decision and chose someone that was not one of the two finalists for the job or even on the candidates list.
