EVERETT — Snohomish County is accepting applications for six new positions on its regional Law and Justice Council.
County officials are asking residents “who represent historically marginalized, underrepresented, and underserved communities” to apply, according to a news release.
The advisory body helps address problems related to the justice system by conducting research and advising the Snohomish County Council. It also provides a forum for law enforcement officials, public defenders, prosecutors, judges and others to talk about such issues.
The new positions were recently created to ensure that communities that have historically been mistreated or ignored by the justice system have a say in those discussions, the news release says.
Applications may be submitted online or via mail and are due to the Snohomish County Executive’s Office no later than Friday.

Anyone with questions about the application process can contact Alessandra Durham, the county’s liaison for boards and commissions, at 425-388-3290 or Alessandra.Durham@snoco.org.
