Mason County Sheriff Casey Salisbury

On Saturday morning, February 22, 2014, over 200 people gathered at the new Sheriff’s Office North Precinct to attend the building dedication and ribbon cutting ceremonies where the new office was christened as The Sheriff Steve Whybark Public Safety Building.

WA State Lt Governor Brad Owens, Mason County resident and long time friend to both current Mason County Sheriff Casey Salisbury and former Mason County Sheriff Steve Whybark spoke words of praise for the many years of dedicated service that Sheriff Whybark provided as well as for the current leadership and vision of Sheriff Salisbury.

Mason County Commissioner District #1 Randy Neatherlin added to Lt Gov Owens thanks to Sheriff Salisbury and former Sheriff Whybark, by adding additional thanks to the men and women Deputies who serve the people of Mason County, and that having this new North Precinct is a long time vision now made a reality by Sheriff Salisbury.

Mason County Sheriff’s Office volunteer of fifteen years John Weichert provided a background on how former Sheriff Whybark began the dream of having a north end office in Belfair.

Mason County Sheriff Casey Salisbury thanked all those in attendance and recognized the citizens of Mason County for helping make his goal of a North Precinct come to fruition.

Former Mason County Sheriff Steve Whybark was joined by his wife Lori where he explained his vision of a Belfair substation when he was a patrol deputy, and then he thanked the hard work and dedication of all of the volunteers who made the office a reality. He also thanked his previous staff that had worked with him for his three terms as Sheriff.

The ceremony began with the presentation of the colors by the Mason County Sheriff’s Office Honor Guard, the pledge of allegiance and invocation by Chaplain George Albertson, and the recognition of the many dignitaries in attendance by Sheriff Salisbury.

A cement stand with a bronze plaque was unveiled by Sheriff Salisbury and former Sheriff Whybark, and then the honor of the ribbon cutting was given to former Sheriff Whybark.

For the ribbon cutting, the following dignitaries were asked to join Sheriff Salisbury and former Sheriff Whybark: Lt Gov Brad Owens, Commissioner Randy Neatherlin, Undersheriff James Barrett, Chief Deputy Ryan Spurling (the new North Precinct Chief), Chief Civil Deputy Jan Shepherd, Chief Admin Deputy Theresia Ehrich, Jail Chief Tom Haugen, and former Undersheriff Gary Crane.

Also in attendance for the North Precinct dedication were former Mason County Sheriff Bob Shepherd, Mason County Commissioner Terri Jeffreys, building owner Bill Byerly, Thurston County Sheriff Chief Deputy Brad Watkins, Kitsap County Undersheriff Dennis Bonneville and Kitsap County Sheriff Chief Deputy Gary Simpson.

After the ceremony, guided tours of the new North Precinct, tours of the static displays of different Sheriff’s Office equipment, meet and greet of different K-9’s, and a K-9 display were all provided to the attendees. There was also a free BBQ served to the public including hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, cookies, pop & water. This was done as a thank you to the public for supporting the Sheriff’s Office in order to have a North Precinct.

A special thanks was also given to the KMAS radio station for providing the PA system for the ceremony, as well covering the event on the air. The Mason County Journal and KIRO TV News were also recognized for providing news journalist that covered the ceremony in order to keep the citizens informed of this great event.
