Thanks to the officers who protect us


In support of our law enforcement, I want to thank all the police and other law enforcement. In particular: Everett, Arlington, Snohomish, Marysville, Tulalip, Stanwood police departments and the, Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office. The police are the guardian angels of our communities and put their lives ahead of its citizens every single day. Without them we would not live in a stable society with law and order. We appreciate our officers just as much as many others across the nation. We need to respect these brave men and women that keep our communities safe.

Despite the “reckless defunding,” of Seattle and others, we are most pleased with their support and the many outstanding performances of due diligence throughout Snohomish County. People are organizing more and more “Back the Blue” rallies by coming together to show their dedicated support for law enforcement and in support that Blue Lives Matter.

Thank you all for your dedication and making us safe.
