"Captain Lowe has truly and positively impacted the community of Santa Monica, and the Santa Monica Police Department, during his 26 years with us,” said Police Chief Cynthia Renaud.

“While we will miss him greatly, we are proud that his talents will be put to good use with the Redmond Police Department in working to serve their community.”

During his tenure Lowe worked a variety of operational assignments, including patrol, school resource officer, Third Street Promenade bike patrol and multiple administrative assignments.

He was most recently captain of the field services division, police officials said.
