The Spotlight: Ride-along with Snohomish County Sheriff's deputy
Snohomish County Sheriff’s deputies say South Precinct areas around Airport Road and Highway 99 and 128th and 4th Ave are seeing a high influx of crime. “Crimes of violence have really skyrocketed,” said Deputy Brendan Pike who took The Spotlight’s cameras on ride-along. He’s one of five deputies serving an area the size of Tacoma. Despite their staffing challenges, they are on a pro-active mission to protect businesses, arrest criminals and provide resources to those ready to accept help.
