RIDGEFIELD, WA – At the March 9, 2023 City Council meeting, Cathy Doriot was sworn in as Ridgefield’s Chief of Police. After a thorough process, which included a 4-month interim period, manager and self-evaluations, and a 360-degree review with internal and external stakeholders, Chief Doriot was offered (and accepted) the position of Ridgefield Chief of Police. Chief Doriot grew up in Ridgefield, and has served the Ridgefield Police Department since 1989, as an Officer, Sergeant, and Lieutenant. Chief Doriot replaces former Chief John Brooks, who retired in 2022.

Through the interim period and evaluation process, it became clearer than ever that Chief Doriot is the best choice to lead Ridgefield’s Police Department into the next phases of the city’s growth and development. City Manager Steve Stuart expounded on that, stating that “she’s a leader, a mentor to many, driven to serve her team and community, and has a unique knowledge and passion for our city’s success having grown up here personally and professionally. She takes this post with the well-earned support of our partners, our officers, and our community. “

Mayor Jennifer Lindsay added that “I am confident that as she has done at every other opportunity, she will rise to the occasion. We are in very capable hands.”
