In 2016, I was pleased to unveil a memorial to honor those killed in the line of duty in the King County Sheriff’s Office. The memorial contains the names and badges of the fifteen Deputies and one Sheriff who lost their lives in service to the people of King County. Several of these officers were targeted solely because they put on a uniform, badge, and gun to protect their community. We honor the sacrifice of those who gave their lives in service and renew our commitment to make our community safer.
