Jamie Deer, a Sheriff’s Deputy who has been with King County 19 years, was profiled on Q13FOX for sharing his personal journey in the hope of helping others.
Jamie is one of the first openly transgender law enforcement officers in Washington state. And he went through his transition later in life, in a very public way — on the job.
“I can’t imagine working anywhere else. I love and respect the men and women I work with. I don’t want to go anywhere else. So, I just decided to take a chance on these guys,” says Jaime.
