Northwest Washington is a unique and beautiful part of our state in which to live and raise a family. With its natural beauty, great recreational opportunities, good schools, and many, many other things, Northwest Washington is a wonderful place to live and work. The feeling of safety that only comes with good law and order is also a critically important element of the strong and vibrant communities that exist here.
Fortunately San Juan County has a Sheriff who knows how to create and sustain such communities. Rob Nou has over 33 years of law enforcement experience, the last four years having served as your elected Sheriff.
Rob is a graduate of the FBI National Academy, as well as the National Sheriff's Institute. In the past four years Rob has led the implementation of changes at the Sheriff's Office to improve efficiency and service through better equipment, additional training, and he has demonstrated a passion for excellent customer service.
Sheriff Nou has repeatedly demonstrated he has the skills and leadership qualities needed to be the chief law enforcement officer in San Juan County. We also know Rob on a more personal level. Having had the opportunity to work with him on various projects and issues over the past four years, it is clear to us that he is also a man of great character and integrity. He is a passionate advocate for issues impacting San Juan County, and his reasonable approach and "can do" attitude make him a pleasure to work with.
As the elected Sheriffs in Island, Whatcom and Skagit counties respectively, who share a common border with San Juan, we count on Sheriff Nou as a critical part of the Northwest Washington Law Enforcement "Leadership Team". The job of Sheriff is too important to count on, "on the job training". Please consider casting your vote to re-elect Sheriff Rob Nou.
