Battle Ground Police Chief Bob Richardson was recently honored by the WA State Public Health Association by receiving their Health Leadership Award at the association’s annual conference.
Chief Richardson has been a member of the Clark County Public Health Advisory since 2011 where he has advocated for public health issues and has been a leader in addressing issues such as methamphetamine use, youth violence and stable funding for public health.
“As an advocate of community-based law enforcement, Chief Richardson understands the strong connection between the work of public safety and public health” said Dr. Alan Melnick, Clark County health officer and public health director. “He is well respected in our community, and brings credibility and an understanding that public health is more than an organization; it is community collaboration.”
The City congratulates Chief Richardson for this distinguished honor.
