The Seattle Times profiled the King County Sheriff’s Office Domestic Violence Investigations Unit in Saturday’s edition, highlighting the reformation of the unit and the hard work being done to protect victims of domestic violence and convict DV offenders.

The article speaks with Detectives Ben Wheeler and Robin Ostrum, Senior Deputy Prosecutor David Martin and Sheriff John Urquhart.

The article goes on to say “Though there isn’t money to expand the unit, Urquhart said he plans to formally offer the unit’s services to the 12 cities that contract with the Sheriff’s Office for police services.

“It’s something I intend to do going forward because it’s been so successful,” he said.”
