EVERETT — The commander of the Snohomish Regional Drug and Gang Task Force was disciplined earlier this year after being convicted of drunken driving while visiting Arizona in March.
Pat Slack informed his supervisors at the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office the day after his arrest, the Sheriff’s Office said Thursday in a prepared statement.
In addition to spending a day in jail for the offense, Slack was suspended without pay for three weeks from his job running the county’s drug detectives.
A sheriff’s office internal investigation concluded Slack violated department policies related to promoting a positive image of the agency and compliance with civil and criminal laws.
Before returning to work July 6, Slack at his own expense completed alcohol treatment and complied with conditions of his sentence in Arizona.
