Bremerton's new police chief is a familiar face in King County.
The city's mayor says Steve Strachan will lead the police department.
Strachan will replace Chief Craig Rogers, who is retiring from the department after more than three decades.
Strachan tried to keep his job as King County Sheriff but lost the November election to the department's former spokesman, John Urquhart.
Strachan has a long resume in law enforcement, which includes more than four years as Kent's police chief.
