Sheriff’s office annual awards ceremony set

On Wednesday, the annual ceremony will honor officers, staff and citizens for their 'exceptional performance.'

NOTE: This event has been postponed due to bad weather predictions. A new date and time has not yet been set.
EVERETT -- Snohomish County's biggest law enforcement agency takes time each year to recognize people whose actions made a difference.
The Snohomish County Sheriff's Office annual awards ceremony is planned for 6 p.m. Wednesday at Cavelero Mid High School at 8220 24th Street SE in Everett.
The ceremony includes awards for deputies, county corrections officers, civilian employees and people who live in the community, sheriff's bureau chief Kevin Prentiss said. Sheriff John Lovick is expected to speak.
"It's our opportunity to recognize exceptional performance on the part of not only employees but on the part of citizens as well," Prentiss said.
The Deputy of the Year is Mike Wilson, and Corrections Deputy of the Year is Mary Senter.
The awards honor acts of heroism and other deeds that contributed to public safety in 2011, Prentiss said. People in the community may not realize how much they help police officers.
"Members of the public do good things every day, and a lot of those good things they do are not recognized," he said.
The sheriff's honor guard will take part in the ceremony. The public is invited to attend. Refreshments will be served.
