Executive praises partnership of King County and federal law enforcement in White Center arrests

King County Executive Dow Constantine today praised the partnership of King County and federal law enforcement that led to dozens of arrests and seizures of guns and drugs at two alleged hubs of criminal activity in White Center:

“This coordinated sweep targeting repeat violent offenders will help keep White Center a place for families and businesses."

“I thank federal authorities for partnering with our King County Sheriff, Prosecutor, and Metro Transit Police, to get these guns off the street and suspects into court."

“I also appreciate the commitment of the U.S Attorney for Western Washington, Jenny Durkan, for organizing Monday night’s meeting to help residents stay involved in the work of keeping their community safe.”
