EVERETT — The Snohomish County Council announced on Monday, July 1, that they have appointed Ty Trenary as the next Sheriff. The unanimous 5-0 vote places Trenary in the Sheriff's Office top position, vacated by John Lovick when he resigned June 3 to accept the position of County Executive.
The 47-year-old Trenary has served the citizens of Washington state as a police officer for more than 25 years. He started his law enforcement career in Eatonville, where he also served as a D.A.R.E. officer, until joining the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office in 1991.
In the Sheriff's Office, Trenary has worked his way up from master patrol deputy to captain, where he most recently served as the leader of the North Precinct. He served as the contract police chief in the city of Stanwood from 2008-12, and has held leadership positions on the Deputy Sheriff's and Management Team associations. Trenary has served in patrol and community policing, and has also worked in administration by managing the training unit, and assisting with recruiting and hiring.
The proud father of two daughters, Ty Trenary is married to Vicki, who is an elementary school teacher in the Marysville School District. Ty and Vicki have made Snohomish County their home for more than 20 years.
"I believe that Snohomish County is an excellent place to raise a family, and I want to focus on the feeling of safety in our community," Ty Trenary said. "Dedication to excellence and community partnerships are key to the success of our organization."
