Outstanding deputies greatly appreciated

I work in an environment that requires quite a bit of local law enforcement responding. I hear and read so many negative opinions about the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office that it is hard to swallow.

Every time I have needed assistance while I am on duty, the Snohomish County deputy or deputies, depending on the severity of the issue, has been successful, professional, diligent, etc. The list goes on.

I personally would like to extend my most sincere appreciation to Sheriff Lovick for the outstanding deputies he has. Not since my end tour of service in the Army as a military policeman have I ever witnessed what I would truly deem as “Above and beyond the call of duty.”

As long as I reside in Snohomish County, I will always have the utmost respect for the men and women who serve as a Snohomish County deputy.

I would like to mention a few deputies that I have worked with directly that personally I feel deserve recognition for being such outstanding law enforcement officials. By no means are any names omitted intentionally. As I stated earlier these are deputies I have worked with directly. Deputy Eakin, Deputy Dill, Deputy Doesch, Deputy Robertson, Deputy Espeland. To these gentlemen, I salute you. To the rest of the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office, I salute you as well and again extend my deep appreciation for your services.
