In my 32-plus years in law enforcement in Island County, I have felt some of the greatest appreciation over the last several months.
No matter which part of our community that I have been in, people have walked up to me and thanked me for what I do. They have purchased meals for me and dropped off snacks, gift cards and “thank you” cards at our offices.
I am humbled by these gestures every time.
I believe that all of us in law enforcement and emergency services want our community to be a safe place for all.
Thank you for supporting us and allowing us to serve.
Chris Garden, deputy
Island County Sheriff’s Office
