He said he thinks it has been a good deal, allowing the cities to avoid duplication of services. In his opinion his officers and his office have done a good job with the available staff, he said. One of the initiatives voters may consider in November is a change in motor vehicle excise taxes; if it passes, the department might receive more money from the state, he said. If that initiative doesn't pass, he said in his opinion the state legislature will have to address the funding issue. LaRoche said during his administrations the department has increased training opportunities for all his deputies and has added a team of officers and equipment to investigate crime scenes. Its criminal investigation unit is recognized and the state and national level, he said. The DARE (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) program has been expanded to all eight of the county's elementary schools, and the department is expanding its marine patrol. A new boat has been purchased and will be stationed at Bridgeport, he said. Citizen involvement has been increased with the addition of auxiliary patrols. Like his officers, LaRoche has undergone extra training. He has graduated from the Washington Stale Sheriffs Institute and the Northwest Law Enforcement Command College operated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. LaRoche is a board member of the Washington Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs and an original member of the board overseeing the state's enhanced 911 system, as well as a member of boards overseeing the state's crime laboratory, toxicology lab and forensic investigation council.
