Public Safety
Under my direction, the county and its partners executed several strategies that make everyone safer. 
Sheriff’s Precinct:

My office led the way in identifying a site and funding to open a Sheriff’s Department precinct in the Parkland/Spanaway area.

This will reduce response times and provide a more visible law enforcement presence for a community that has been seeking this for many years. 
South Sound 911:

My vision of improving public safety by creating a state-of-the-art communications system for first responders is becoming a reality. Pierce County Sheriff’s deputies and other local police agencies shifted to a new radio network that would not have been possible without my initiative to create South Sound 911, the voter-approved agency that helped pay for it. South Sound 911 also delivered more than 3,700 radios to first responders in 30 agencies. As a result, more first responders can quickly and clearly communicate with each other across the region.

Closing in on Crime

Statistics from the Sheriff’s Department show that crime is down in many categories, including fewer service calls per officer, fewer crime cases per officer, and a major drop in crimes per thousand residents. Visit www.piercecountycrimedata.org to see data from your neighborhood.
