King County Sheriff's Office Community Advisory Board


The purpose of the King County Sheriff's Office Community Advisory Board is to gather a diverse set of public safety experts and advocates to support and advise King County Sheriff Patricia Cole-Tindall on creating a just, dynamic, and responsive public safety system. 


Objectives of the Community Advisory Board include:

  • Advise the King County Sheriff on policy concepts and implementation;
  • Serve as the community voice on public safety and law enforcement issues; and
  • Create a forum for trust building between law enforcement and community.


The Community Advisory Board will have between 10 and 15 members, drawn from the following categories:

  • Unincorporated Rural King County
  • Unincorporated Urban King County
  • Muckleshoot Indian Tribe
  • KCSO Contract Cities*
  • Community Groups
  • Business Groups

Additionally, the Community Advisory Board will strive for a diverse set of participants, including representatives from BIPOC communities, youth, and people with prior justice system involvement.
