OLEO was established to increase confidence in the county’s policing services through independent, community-based oversight of the King County Sheriff’s Office. OLEO represents the interests of the public when conducting our work, which includes: 

  • Independent review of internal misconduct investigations 
  • Systemic reviews of Sheriff’s Office policies, practices and training, with recommendations for improvements 
  • Attending critical incident scenes, such as officer-involved shootings 
  • Engaging King County’s communities for input and feedback
