BPD Officer returns after third tour of duty

Officer Jesse Hjelmstad on patrol in Bellevue

Officer Jesse Hjelmstad is back patrolling Bellevue’s streets after serving his third tour of duty with the National Guard.  As a Sergeant First Class, Officer Hjelmstad led a platoon of 20 medics in Northeastern Africa, the Middle East, and Eastern Europe for the past year.

During the mission, Officer Hjelmstad and his unit trained with Jordanian forces in combat first aid, including setting up field hospitals and teaching the Jordanians how to care for themselves on the battlefield.

Hjelmstad left in fall 2019 and returned in late September to a changed world. “There were a couple of Seattle officers and a King County Deputy in my platoon, so every night we’d watched everything unfold online.  From the COVID-19 outbreak to the protests and civil unrest,” Hjelmstad remembered. “I was a little apprehensive coming back, but it’s been much better than I expected. I’m proud to serve my country and proud to be back with BPD.”

With three little kids at home, Hjelmstad said missing his family was the most difficult part of his deployment.  He has four more years in the Air National Guard.

Protests and rumor control

Bellevue police are not currently aware of any protests planned in the city. We are receiving calls from concerned residents and businesses who are hearing rumors of events. There is a tremendous amount of disinformation on social media, and that is understandably causing anxiety.  We want to assure everyone that we do not have any information about planned protests in Bellevue.

However, please be vigilant and let us know if you hear something so we can investigate. Bellevue police are staffed appropriately and flexible in responding to any situation.  While election day is tomorrow, the uncertainty may remain for a while. 

Please follow BPD on social media (@BvuePD) and check our website (www.bellevuewa.gov/police) for the latest information.  We are committed to relaying information to you through these channels as we get it to keep you up to date on what to expect.

Officer returned to full duty; reprimanded

Shortly after complaints of an officer’s social media activity on June 2, 2020, the Bellevue Police Department hired an independent fact-finding investigator to examine the officer’s posts.  Officer Nick Roche was immediately placed on administrative leave pending the investigation.  

Following an exhaustive review, the investigator found that while the officer’s social media posts were “Ill-advised and imprudent,” she concluded, “There is an absence of evidence suggesting that Ofc. Roche ascribes to or harbors alt-right or extremist beliefs, or any other improper ideologies or biases that call into question his fitness to serve as a law enforcement officer.”

Bellevue Police Chief Steve Mylett did find the officer violated the Bellevue Police Department’s Standards of Conduct Policy 11.00.240. “The Bellevue Police Department takes complaints of an officer’s integrity and judgement very seriously,” stated Chief Mylett. “In this case, the investigator determined no impartiality, but the officer’s social media activity was in poor judgement and in violation of BPD policy.” Officer Roche received a letter of reprimand in his file.

The officer has returned to full duty.
