Chaplain Joel Ingebritson,
Program Manager

The King County Sheriff's Office is in it's 156th year serving the citizens of King County. As Chaplains we are proud to be a significant piece of this history. Each of the 12 Sheriff's Chaplains and Chaplaincy recruits serve the Deputies, Officers, and the citizens of King County. We are committed to our mission statement that our presence in service at the critical areas of life does make a difference!

The King County Sheriff's Chaplains are volunteers who serve without denominational identification on a 24 hour 7 day a week availability. We respond to accident and crime scenes and at the request of the King County Medical Examiner to make death notifications.

On Saturday April 02 the KCSO remembered and gave thanks for the service of Myhrlane Derum Gorsline, Retired Deputy who died at UWMC in March.  Myhrlane was the first of three women recruited to the Sheriff’s Office in 1972 and rose to the rank of MPO.  It is a privilege of the KCSO Chaplaincy Unit to come together to both mourn and celebrate the service of one of our family.  The service was held at the Midway Community Covenant Church in Des Moines , WA .

Trained for Service: Our training as ordained and licensed pastors and links to parish ministry provide a multi dimensioned view towards the service and compassion of those we are called to serve. In other words, we are oriented to serve people in times of crisis and trauma--times that they would not normally face.

We also respond to search scenes and find ourselves in the presence of a volunteers like ourselves who are available to respond to Sheriff's Office personnel and the community
