The Snohomish County Sheriff's Office is committed to responding to media requests as quickly as possible, without jeopardizing the accuracy of information.
The lead PIOs for the Sheriff's Office are Director of Communications Shari Ireton and Communications Specialist Courtney O'Keefe. Lieutenants may serve in the PIO role on weekends and when the director of communications is not available. The on-duty PIO can be reached for breaking news inquiries at all hours via the media line at 425-249-6263. For non-breaking news stories, contact the director of communications.
Information about active events or ongoing incidents may also be posted on the Sheriff's Office official Twitter and Facebook accounts.
In an effort to maintain compliance with the requirements of the Public Records Act and relevant Washington State Public Records laws, requests for copies of police reports, or information beyond the scope of the information provided by the PIO, should be made to our Public Records Unit.
