FROM THE DESK OF THE CHIEF: NISQUALLY INDIAN TRIBE – COMMITTED TO REGIONAL PUBLIC SAFETY
You will be seeing a brand new cruiser patrolling DuPont streets – however, this car is not like the rest of the patrol cars in our fleet. This one is bearing something very special…The Nisqually Tribe’s crest and historic title. This vehicle highlights the public safety partnership between the Nisqually Indian Tribe and the DuPont Police Department – A relationship that we are extremely proud of.
Thanks to our friends and partners at the Nisqually Indian Tribe, this vehicle was purchased through a grant of local government funds from the Tribe. Please take a moment to read our media release (link below) about this incredibly generous gift – which will help provide public safety services to the citizens of DuPont.
Also, I would like to recognize and thank several very important people pictured:
- Nisqually Tribal Chairman Willie Frank III
- 5th Council Member Chaynannah Squally
- 6th Council Member Hanford McCloud
- Nisqually Treasurer David Iyall
- Nisqually Chief of Police Tom Iyall
I would also like to thank Vice Chair Antonette Squally (Nisqually Language Teacher) and Council Member Chaynannah Squally for ensuring the vehicle’s decal was historically accurate, and in keeping with the honorable traditions of the Tribe. Lastly, thank you to Debbie Preston, Nisqually Information Officer for all of her help with this project.
