Kelly
Val Kelly Hello. My name is Val and I am honored to be joining the Muckleshoot Police Dept. And Community. I have been with the King County Sheriff’s Office for almost fourteen years. There is a Maya Angelou quote that emphasizes the importance of how you make people feel and it leads me in every aspect of my life, to include being at the core of why I chose to join law enforcement. In my spare time, I love to spend time with family and friends which includes my wife and our pack of three dogs. I look forward to connecting with as many people as possible.

S.LessardSm

I’m Deputy Steven Lessard and have been working for the King County Sheriff’s Office for 13 years. I have been working for the Muckleshoot Police Department 11 of those 13 years and a majority of my time has been at the tribal school.  I have established many professional and personal relationships with Muckleshoot members over the years.  I truly believe those relationships with the community are strong because they are based on trust.  I feel trust is the most important building block to a community policing relationship.  In my off time I like to work out, go camping and spend lots of time with my family.
