[ARCHIVED] MLT Appoints New Police Commander and Sergeant

Police Commander Pat Lowe Being Sworn In By Chief Caw

At the April 15 City Council meeting, Police Chief Pete Caw administered oaths to new Police Commander Pat Lowe and Sergeant Justin Mettler who were recently promoted in the City of Mountlake Terrace Police Department. Lowe replaces long-time Police Commander Doug Hansen who retired after 38 years of service with the city.

Commander Lowe was hired as a Lateral Police Officer for the city in December of 2003. He became a Detective in 2006 on a limited term assignment and returned to patrol duties in 2010. In 2012, Lowe was promoted to Police Sergeant and then ascended to Special Services Sergeant in 2014.

After a promotion to Detective Sergeant in 2017, Lowe performed a variety of advanced level professional, technical and supervisory law enforcement duties. As Commander, Lowe will oversee command services, which includes investigations along with evidence, records and code enforcement.

“I have had the privilege of working with Pat Lowe since the day he became a member of this department, stated Chief Caw. “He is a highly capable leader with both the quality and breadth of experience we need in this profession. It is my honor to promote him to my Command Staff.”

Sergeant Mettler started with the city as a Reserve Officer in 2011. He became a Patrol Officer in 2013 and was promoted to Detective in 2017. Sergeant Mettler is responsible for supervising a night shift patrol shift of 3 to 5 officers depending upon the day of the week.

Chief Caw said, “Justin Mettler worked very hard to become a Sergeant. We have developed a very good working relationship and I am delighted to promote him.”
