Adam Fortney, Snohomish County Sheriff said:
"The number one concern of residents and businesses in Snohomish County is Public Safety. In times that have been unprecedented for public safety, I have served the people with accountable and compassionate leadership.
The law enforcement profession has undergone incredible scrutiny nationwide, and some of it justifiably so. I have been able to strike a balance of looking inward on how to deliver public safety services equitably, while still allowing pro-active policing and supporting our men and women who put their lives on the line everyday for our community.
I look forward to continuing to serve our county with transparency, accountability and compassion in Moving Snohomish County Forward with the Safety You Deserve.”
