Join us for National Night Out!

It’s a known fact that when neighbors team up with law enforcement, communities are safer. The purpose of National Night Out is so that we can connect with you and provide information about crime prevention, community partnerships and let criminals know that we are working together to protect our neighborhoods. 

I look forward to National Night Out every year because it’s an opportunity for us to connect directly with the communities we serve.   National Night Out aligns perfectly with our mission: community first, public safety always.

Join us on August 4th and learn more about your community and your Sheriff’s Office.

Safety Tip of the Season

Beautiful...but Dangerous

Snohomish County is home to some of the most beautiful beaches, rivers and lakes in the world. They present vast recreational opportunities – fishing, kayaking, rafting, and other activities.

But drowning is a real risk when utilizing our county's rivers.  This year, we've responded to five water rescue incidents already - four of those victims drowned.

Here are some tips to stay safe:
  • Always wear a life jacket when you are on the water. Never go near moving water without one.
  • Slippery when wet. Beware of beach logs, river banks and rocks near the shore, as they can be slippery.
  • Keep kids within arm's reach. Drowning is the third leading cause of unintentional injury-related death among children ages 14 and under.
  • Don't dive in. Two-thirds of catastrophic neck injuries occur in open water and the sea.
  • Stay warm. Water temperatures range from 55º F to 60º F. Hypothermia is a real danger in our Snohomish County waters. 
  • Check tide tables and weather forecasts.

Heroin's innocent victims in Snohomish County – KING5 (6/18/2015)

Heroin is cheaper than a cup of coffee and its ravaging parts of Snohomish County, where the sheriff created a special drug task force to attack the ugly addiction. Deputies are especially focused on the innocent victims of heroin: neighbors, family members and even the environment. The department soon will begin using volunteers to make routine calls and monthly visits with people who are aging or disabled but determined to remain living on their own. The program is called “You Are Not Alone.”
