On Aug. 21 Ethan Gossard and Ryan Anderson both of Forks, will be honored as Sheriff and Chief for a Day, respectively, at the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Commission in Burien.
Chief for a Day is about celebrating the lives of children who have been diagnosed with a life-threatening or chronic illness.
Each law enforcement agency is providing their "Chief" or "Sheriff" with a hand-tailored uniform and a gift basket containing gifts for each child and their families. This year 34 law enforcement agencies sponsored a child to participate in the event.
The two will be "sworn in" and then have lunch with all other attendees and academy recruits, and then participate in outside presentations provided by law enforcement agencies and criminal justice entities including K-9 units, bicycle patrols, SWAT, rifle units, aviation units and much more.
This event is donation-funded and is open to the public, children and families are encouraged to attend.
