Lincoln City Police ten year veteran Sgt. Brian Eskridge was praised Monday night by Police Chief Keith Kilian as a strong asset to the police department. Chief Kilian cited Sgt. Eskridge’s early years in law enforcement with Oregon State Police as a leader in OSP SWAT tactics, knowledge that he routinely imparts to his fellow Lincoln City Police Officers.
Chief Kilian told the city council that he has come to rely on Sgt. Eskridge in a number of ways to help ease the transition to the new administration at the police department, Chief Kilian taking over from retiring Chief Steve Bachard. Sgt. Eskridge received a ten year service certificate from the city council, given to him personally by Mayor Dick Anderson who thanked him for his service and with hope that his service will continue for many more years to the city of Lincoln City and to its citizens.
