The Deputy Sheriff's Guild was established in 1996, following a vote to self-represent during labor negotiations. Entirely independent, we are not subject to the control or influence of persons outside our organization. We represent all of the fully commissioned deputies and sergeants of the Whatcom Co Sheriff's Office. A non-profit corporation, we receive no funding from government agencies or tax dollars.
Our primary role is to protect the working conditions, benefits, training and equipment of our members; however, we also donate time and money to help both our members and the great citizens of Whatcom County that we took an oath to protect.
