Proposed Sheriff’s Office Memorial Legislation
I proposed legislation on March 6th to create a memorial to the 15 King County sheriff’s deputies killed in the line of duty since the department’s creation in 1852.
The Sheriff's Office is King County’s first and longest serving law enforcement agency. All fifteen deputies are recognized both in Washington, D.C. as part of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, and in Olympia, where they are listed on the Washington State Law Enforcement Memorial. But there is no memorial in the county where the deputies lost their lives.
My proposed ordinance calls on the Executive and the King County Sheriff to submit a proposal to the County Council by June 1. It passed unanimously through the County Council’s Law, Justice, Health and Human Services Committee and now awaits final action by the Council.
In the coming days and weeks, I will continue to memorialize each of these fallen Deputies on my Twitter page @KCCReaganDunn. The first tweet remembering these heroes was on March 27 and honored King County Sheriff’s Office Detective Michael Raburn, who was tragically killed in March of 1984.
Honoring the memories of the King County Sheriff’s Department who have lost their lives protecting the public is the right thing to do. We must never forget the ultimate sacrifice they made on our behalf.
Please feel to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call my office at (206) 296-1009 if you have any questions regarding this or any other matter involving county government.
Please join Councilmember Reagan Dunn and King County Sheriff John Urquhart for a town hall meeting. This event provides the opportunity for you to discuss County services and recent events in Fairwood and to ask questions of your elected officials and King County department representatives.
Mark Larson, Chief Deputy in the Criminal Division of the King County Prosecutor's Office, will also be in attendance to help answer any questions regarding the Boysen investigation.
