We added an additional six deputies to the patrol by realigning staff and hiring two deputies to support our contracted cities Rainier and Bucoda. We believe in innovation, transparency, and being good stewards of our public funds, people, time, and physical assets. This site was created to provide an introduction to the important information to assist us with ensuring the public safety for the people we serve. Many of the public safety issues have a far broader geographical range than just Thurston County, so we hope our web site will also serve as a resource to other information links to help keep you informed. We will continue to manage our equipment and resources, to include improving technology, records management, personnel development, and advancing our volunteer programs. Snaza, Sheriff Vision "Committed to excellence through pride, professionalism and accountability in order to provide dedicated public service to our community. We are dedicated to being a strong partner and public service leader in Thurston County and in Washington State. As an example, we adapted a new patrol schedule and rotation for our investigative staff to provide more experienced and responsive service. With this in mind, the ongoing development of all my staff at every level is a priority to enhance their knowledge, skills, and abilities. As we work towards another year of success, we are committed to working with the Board of County Commissioners to find a resolution with the new jail. We have implemented leadership team meetings to help identify the day-to-day operational needs of the entire agency, making critical decisions to improve public service, and monitoring every aspect of the agency based on performance, crime, budget, and accountability. Our goal is to assist you with providing information about public safety issues that have an impact upon the quality of life in Thurston County and the service our agency provides.
