King County Sheriff
Mitzi Johanknecht

New Media Relations Officer


Please say farewell to Stan Seo and welcome our returning media relations sergeant, Cindi West.


Effective today Sgt. Cindi West will take over as the Media Relations Sergeant for the King County Sheriff’s Office.  Sgt. Stan Seo, who has been the Media Relations Sergeant for the last 5 months, will resume his duties as the Patrol Operations Sergeant.

“Stan has been doing two jobs for the last 5 months, Media Relations and patrol operations Sergeant.  He has done a great job handling both positions but it’s time to let him focus on one assignment,” said Sheriff John Urquhart.

Sgt. West previously worked for the Sheriff’s Office as the Media Relations Officer from 2011-2013 and then left for a bicycle patrol position.
