Interim Sheriff Cole-Tindall will update us on the King County Sheriff's Office.
On January 1, 2022, King County Executive Dow Constantine appointed Patricia Cole-Tindall as the Interim Sheriff for the King County Sheriff's office. Patti will serve in that capacity until a process for identifying a permanent Sheriff is completed.
When she was Undersheriff, Cole-Tindall was responsible for the day-to-day operations of the Sheriff's Office together with the team of three Division Chiefs. She oversaw the development and implementation of the King County Sheriff's Office Strategic Plan and examination and strengthening of the Sheriff's Office complaint and use of force review processes.
Before her promotion to Undersheriff, in the summer of 2020, Patti served as the Chief of Technical services Division for almost 5 years. Prior to joining the King County Sheriff's Office in October 2015, Cole Tindall served as the Director of the King County Office of Labor Relations for 6 years.
Patti enjoys traveling and spending time with her friends and two sons.
