The Sheriff's Office is Now Open to the Public

A Message from Sheriff John Snaza

Sheriff John Snaza

Welcome to the website for the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office, Washington State's Capital County.

I hope you find all the resources you need on this site, as well as insight into all the great programs and services our agency provides that impact the quality of life in Thurston County. Many public safety issues have a far broader geographical range than just Thurston County, so we hope our web site will also serve as a resource to other information links to keep you informed.

The service we provide the people of Thurston County would not be possible without our employees’ dedication to duty and their commitment to strong core values to respect all people. We believe in innovation, transparency, and being good stewards of our public funds, people, time, and physical assets.

I believe effective leadership is paramount for accountability in providing quality service and ensuring public safety. The ongoing development of all my staff at every level is a priority to enhance their knowledge, skills, and abilities. We are dedicated to being a strong partner and public service leader in Thurston County and in Washington State.

The men and women of the Thurston County Sheriff's Office are committed to protecting your families, friends, and children. We all believe "People First ~ Public Safety Always".

Serving you, John D. Snaza, Sheriff
