InfoKing County Sheriff Dave Reichert is determined to carry law and order principles to our nation's capital and to bring security and jobs to Washington's Eighth Congressional District. With over 30 years of law enforcement experience, Sheriff Reichert has delivered a remarkable record of public service to the citizens of King County. Decisive leadership, integrity and tireless dedication are hallmarks of Reichert's candidacy for Representative to the United States Congress.

Dave Reichert joined the sheriff's office in 1972 and in 1997 became King County's first elected sheriff in over 30 years. During his department leadership, King County saw a significant drop in violent crime. Reichert brought national recognition to the sheriff's office as head of a task force solving one of the largest serial murder cases in US history. As sheriff, Dave also brought an unprecedented $28 million in federal funding to King County law enforcement efforts. Sheriff Reichert has established himself as a leading voice against domestic violence and an advocate of strong family values.

Reichert is recipient of the prestigious 2004 National Sheriff's Association's "Sheriff of the Year" award. He is a two-time Medal of Valor Award Recipient from the King County sheriff's office and was honored with Washington Policy Center's Champion of Freedom Award. Dave received the Families Northwest Public Policy Award and took top honors in a recent KING5 poll ranking leadership strength of local politicians.

Reichert is president of the Washington State Sheriff's Association and an executive board member of the Washington Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs. He has served on numerous advisory boards including the King County Criminal Justice Council and the King County Domestic Violence Council. Currently, Sheriff Reichert co-chairs Washington State Partners in Crisis, a statewide coalition targeting issues related to mental health.

David George Reichert, 53, was born in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota, the oldest of seven children and grandson of the town marshal. His family moved to Washington state in 1951 living first in Renton and later in Kent where Reichert attended Kent Meridian High School. He graduated from Concordia Lutheran College in Portland, Oregon where he played football and where he met his wife of 33 years, Julie. The Reicherts currently live in Auburn and have three grown children, Angela, Tabitha and Daniel and five grandchildren (pictured are Caleb, Timary, Briar and Emma).
