Julian Chivington announced by King County Sheriff’s Office as new White Center storefront deputy

Three months after Deputy BJ Myers moved to a new role with the King County Sheriff’s Office, his successor as White Center Storefront Deputy has been announced. Just in from KCSO spokesperson Sgt. DB Gates:

Deputy Julian Chivington has been selected as the new storefront deputy for the White Center community. Deputy Chivington has been with the King County Sheriff’s Office since 2008, and his most recent assignment was with the bicycle unit of our Metro Transit Police unit.

Earlier in his career he worked as a patrol deputy at our north precinct, primarily in the North Bend area. Prior to that, he worked as a patrol deputy assigned to our city of Shoreline contract.

In addition to his duties as the White Center storefront deputy, he is a member of our department’s TAC 30 team.

Deputy Chivington is looking forward to getting to know both the citizens and businesses of the White Center community.

A bit of his background is as follows:

He is originally from a small town in Ohio, leaving there when he joined the military. Deputy Chivington spent six and a half years serving in the U.S. Army, stationed initially at Fort Benning, and later at Fort Lewis. He was deployed to Iraq twice. On one of those deployments he was injured as a result of an IED which resulted in his military career being cut short.

Just two months ago, local leaders voiced concerns that the storefront deputy position might not be filled, and started a petition drive. If you don’t meet Deputy Chivington sooner, we’re told the Sheriff’s Office will be featured prominently at the next North Highline Unincorporated Area Council meeting (7 pm Thursday, November 6th), so make plans to be there.
