proactive relationships with the community

Partnerships Matter

Kitsap County Sheriff's Office Undersheriff John Gese recognizes a citizen for their help.

Sir Robert Peel (circa 1829) stated, “Police, at all times, should maintain a relationship with the public that gives reality to the historic tradition that the police are the public and the public are the police; the police being only members of the public who are paid to give full-time attention to duties which are incumbent on every citizen in the interests of community welfare and existence.”   The partnerships between the KCSBF, Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office, Kitsap Community Foundation, and the community are the personification of the very principles identified by Sir Robert Peel in the 1800’s.
