Deputy Lopez has his mother pin his Sheriff Star badge on his chest.

Deputy Lopez was hired as a regular Deputy Sheriff in 2008, but then was laid off due to budget cuts. Deputy Lopez was then hired by the Squaxin Island Tribal Police Department and served with distinction until he re-applied to again work as a Mason County Deputy Sheriff when a position opened this year.

Sheriff Salisbury stated that we are very fortunate to have been able to re-hire Deputy Lopez and that he will be a worthy addition to our agency.

Deputy Lopez lives in Mason County with his wife & family, and is looking forward to being on patrol and serving the citizens of Mason County.
