Two new officers have joined the ranks of the Enumclaw Police Department, each coming equipped with years of experience.
Acting Chief Bob Huebler introduced the pair Jan. 8 to members of the Enumclaw City Council.
Kim-Xuan Brewer most recently served with the Seattle Police Department but, prior to that, spent 24 years in the U.S. Air Force. Most of his time in the service was spent with the military police, but he also worked as a combat air controller with Special Operations, experiencing several tours of duty in Afghanistan.
Steve Howerton noted that he “fell in love” with Enumclaw after visiting family here.
He has joined the EPD after 24 years of employment with the city of Visalia, California, where he initially worked with that city’s Public Works Department. But he transitioned to the roster of Visalia police officers and spent most of his Visalia years with law enforcement.
Howerton will become state certified later this month, Huebler said, and both officers will be completing their field training.
