County councilman proposes memorial for fallen deputies

April 2, 2013

King County Councilman Reagan Dunn’s proposal to honor the 15 members of the King County Sheriff’s Office who have been killed in the line of duty passed unanimously through the County Council’s Law, Justice, Health and Human Services Committee.

There is currently no memorial in the county recognizing the deputies’ sacrifices. Dunn’s proposal suggests creating one within the King County Courthouse.
