Black Diamond PD helped me out of a tight spot

They took on what other officers of the law would not.

Today we took a moment to show our appreciation for the Black Diamond Police Department, bringing in donuts and coffee gift cards as a small gesture to express gratitude. What an awesome police department we have here in Black Diamond!

I recently sold my vehicle and unfortunately, that person did not do their part and proceeded to receive 15 parking tickets that were sent to my attention. After many attempts to rectify this with the individual directly, he continued to remain resistant.

Upon being sent $900 worth of parking ticket fines, I decided it was necessary to take more serious action. After being disregarded by a local county police department, I turned to my own jurisdiction, Black Diamond.

Officers Larry Colagiovanni and Brian Lynch took my situation very seriously and followed through with a quick resolution. I am so grateful and honored to have such a dedicated police department right in my backyard. Thank you again Larry, Brian and the rest of the Black Diamond Police Department for being there when it was needed!
