Officer placed on administrative leave

Late Tuesday, the Bellevue Police Department was alerted that an officer may have violated the department’s social media policy. The department immediately looked into the matter and determined there was reason to launch an investigation.  The Chief authorized an independent outside investigation to ensure complete transparency. The officer has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.

We remind the public that Bellevue Police Department employees train and are guided by our core values of respect, integrity, accountability, and service. “We will allow the investigators to do their work fully and completely, and we’ll take appropriate actions at its conclusion,” said Chief Mylett.

Bellevue police investigate fatal stabbing

Two people died following a domestic disturbance in the 15500 block of NE 22nd Place just before 11:30 pm Monday, June 1st. Officers responded to a report of a stabbing where the suspect was believed to still be at the scene. 

When officers arrived, they found two victims a 57-year-old male and a 58-year-old female, with critical injuries.  The 30-year-old suspect was inside the residence, also with serious injuries.

The suspect is believed to be the victims’ son, and he was taken into custody. At this time, we believe his parents had traveled from Texas to visit their son in Bellevue.

Officers attempted life-saving measures, and the two victims were transported to the hospital. Unfortunately, they succumbed to their injuries. The suspect was arrested and is in police custody.

The investigation is ongoing.

Case # 20-26283

Three injured in domestic disturbance

A domestic disturbance in the 15500 block of NE 22nd Pl. has sent three people to the hospital. The call came in at 11:20 pm.  When officers arrived, they found a man and a woman, both in their 60s with serious injuries. A man in his 30s had unknown injuries. All three were transported to the hospital. Investigators have secured the scene, and there is no risk to the public.

Chief Steve Mylett’s statement regarding George Floyd’s death

This week, the world witnessed the senseless death of Mr. George Floyd while in custody of police officers charged to protect and serve. There appears to be no justification for the force used on Mr. Floyd, and what transpired that tragic day has now resulted in criminal charges against the involved officer.  The actions seen on video are not consistent with the training or values we promote in our profession. I cannot imagine the anguish, fear, and panic Mr. Floyd experienced as he begged the officer to allow him to breathe, only to have his pleas be rejected. I cannot imagine the hurt, anger, and frustration of Mr. Floyd’s family, friends, and community who look to the police for protection and fair treatment.  The public servants involved failed them all.

Chief Steve Mylett

On behalf of the men and women of the Bellevue Police Department, I want to express my deepest condolences to Mr. Floyd’s loved ones on his tragic death. There is nothing that can bring him back, and I pray he is resting in peace.

Throughout the country, police chiefs are speaking out against the actions of the involved officer who placed his knee on the neck of Mr. Floyd and the officers who stood by and allowed it to happen. Over the past few days, I have met with my officers who’ve expressed disgust at how Mr. Floyd was treated and the reckless inactions of the officers who witnessed Mr. Floyd’s death.

Please know that when officers see acts of violence against citizens at the hands of police officers, most officers become as outraged as everyone else – in some ways, even more so. Why? Because most of the one million police officers who serve communities throughout this country do so with honor, integrity, and courage. They sacrifice their safety to protect others as they work hard to build trust and legitimacy in their communities. So, when an incident such as this happens, the results are erosion of trust between the public and the police in areas well beyond the actual incident, especially in communities of color.  That is certainly regrettable.

I want to reassure the Bellevue community that we at the Bellevue Police Department will continue to work hard to earn your trust through our actions.  Additionally, I reaffirm our commitment to stand beside each of you as we navigate the challenges of our times with the reassuring knowledge that we are stronger together.  We will continue to treat every human being with dignity, respect, and humanity.

A fond farewell, John McCracken

After nearly 35 years, Bellevue Police said farewell to Major John McCracken. McCracken’s a Bellevue native and started his career as a dispatcher in 1986, after graduating from Newport High School, Bellevue College, and the University of Washington.

Major John McCracken

He soon became a police support officer and then a Bellevue police officer in 1988. 

McCracken is a ‘cops cop.’  He is tenacious, competitive, and a team player.  “John always had your back,” said Sergeant Dave DeVore, who worked his entire career with McCracken. “But he also challenged you, everyone, and that made us all better cops at the end of the day.”

During his career, John was a patrol officer, a motorcycle officer, Field Training Officer, Patrol, and Traffic Unit Captain.  He also served as a Special Detail Unit Detective, SWAT Team Commander, Investigations Captain, and since 2017, as Investigations Major. 

“It’s difficult to underestimate the impact Major McCracken has had on BPD over the years; his leadership, energy, compassion, and ability to make even the most difficult jobs seem effortless will be missed,” said Assistant Chief Carl Kleinknecht.  “When John arrived on scene, you were confident the job would get done and get done well.”

Of the hundreds of cases McCracken’s investigated, the one that bothers him most is the Sky Metalwala case.  Sky vanished in 2011 and has never been found.  “We could never determine what happened to Sky. We know he didn’t disappear from Bellevue that day, and we suspect only his mom can tell us what happened to him,” McCracken said.

McCracken says he’s been lucky to have had some great assignments over the years, like getting paid to ride a motorcycle.  But his fondest memories are working with the Make A Wish Foundation helping kids who deserved a special day, including Electron Boy and Justice Boy.

“This has been an amazingly satisfying career.  I wouldn’t have wanted to do anything else. I’m lucky to have had the opportunity to serve the city where I grew up.”
