King County Police Officers Guild and the Seattle Police Officers Guild Announce Jim Ferrell
March 4th, 2020
SEATTLE, WA – I am pleased to be able to announce two monumental endorsements. I have just received the endorsement of the King County Police Officers Guild and the Seattle Police Officers Guild! This is a massive boost of momentum and game changer for our campaign!
These men and women understand that their mission as Police Officers is to not only protect, but to serve. I think we often lose sight of that. I thank them for their service and am honored to have their support and endorsement.
When we talk about justice, it’s not just about the accused, but the victims as well. These officers are the men and women who are on the front lines with the victims of crime.
Justice isn’t only about locking people up. It is about how we change lives. The front line law enforcement professionals in Seattle and King County know this and work to better our communities each and every day.
A well-functioning criminal justice system is about working with people to course correct. By the time an offender reaches my desk, they have already spent too much time in the system. By using innovative reforms, like diversion courts and the LEED program, it’s my goal to change lives without resorting to locking them up as the first option. At the heart of this is accountability. We must have accountability, voters demand it, they deserve it!
