King County Sheriff John Urquhart joins members of the County Council after Councilmembers (Dave Upthegrove, Kathy Lambert, Joe McDermott, Claudia Balducci, and Rod Dembowski) declared May 15-21 as Police Week in King County

4,000 men and women are in law enforcement in King County serving 39 cities, three Tribal Governments, the University of Washington, and nearly 250,000 residents living in unincorporated communities.

Since King County Deputy Wesley Cherry’s death in 1853, 95 county-based officers have made the ultimate sacrifice, with 16 of those officers working in the King County Sheriff’s Office.
