(Sequim, WA) -- The new police chief for Sequim comes with a checkered past. Ken Burge was picked to take over the top law enforcement job this week. He had been with the Glendale, Colorado police department until he was fired there. Burge says he lost his last police chief job for taking a stand against political interests. There were also reports of racism and police brutality occurring in that department. Sequim City Manager Bill Elliott announced the hiring of Burge on Tuesday to succeed Byron Nelson, who has been police chief since 1996. Nelson has written a letter of resignation effective August 31st, but has agreed to work until Burge takes over sometime before October first.
