FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  February 10, 2015

CONTACT: Shari Ireton, Director of Communications, Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office, 425-388-3377, Media line: 425-249-6263

EVERETT, WASH. – Yesterday, the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office held a promotion ceremony for Undersheriff Rob Beidler and several other recently promoted employees.

Beidler, who most recently served the Sheriff’s Office as Corrections Bureau Chief, was sworn in to the position of Undersheriff after it was left vacant by Brent Speyer, who recently retired.  The position of Undersheriff is appointed by the Sheriff and is second in command of the agency. 

“Ty and I are both incredibly passionate about the Sheriff’s Office,” said Beidler, “and we both feel very strongly about the success of this agency.”

Beidler has been with the Sheriff’s Office for more than 20 years, working in the patrol, motors, and marine units.  He also served as a Field Training Officer for many years, and was a SWAT squad leader.  Before leading the Corrections Bureau, Beidler had served as East Precinct Commander, Chief of the Sultan Police Department, and South Precinct Commander. 

Corrections Bureau Chief Tony Aston and Major Jaime Kane were also promoted yesterday, along with Captain Kristina Witte, the first female captain in Corrections since the Sheriff’s Office merged with the jail in 2008.   Sheriff Ty Trenary also swore in three recently promoted sergeants:  Patrol Sgt. Vincent Linnell, Corrections Sgt. Scott Lewis, and Patrol Sgt. Tom Morris.
