Grant County Sheriff Tom Jones was recently appointed to a board of directors’ position for a statewide law enforcement support group.
Sheriff Jones was appointed to the board of directors of the Behind the Badge Foundation, a non-for-profit organization based in Issaquah. He was approved by their board of directors based upon a recommendation by board president Brian Johnston, a sergeant with the Monroe Police Department.
“I am truly humbled to have even been considered for such an honor, and even more proud to have been appointed to the board,” said Sheriff Tom Jones. “The Behind the Badge Foundation provides important services and support to families of fallen law enforcement officers, and I look forward to being a part of such a great organization.”
The Behind the Badge Foundation provides comprehensive support to Washington State’s law enforcement agencies, families and communities after an officer has died or suffered serious injury in the line of duty. The Foundation also maintains the Washington State Law Enforcement Memorial in Olympia, commemorating the lives and dedication of officers who have died in service to our state.
