Derek Sanders eager to shape Sheriff’s Office in new year, but expects ‘baptism by fire’

From The Olympian:

Derek Sanders is eager to shape the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office with his new command staff at the helm in 2023, but he says he’s not completely sure what he’s stepping into.

Sanders was sworn in as sheriff during a Dec. 27 ceremony by Thurston County Superior Court Judge Sharonda Amamilo. However, he officially started his new role Sunday, Jan. 1.

“It was awesome to be surrounded by family and just people in the community that were excited to see change in the position of sheriff,” Sanders said of his swearing in. “It felt good, but it was also a short time to celebrate because there’s a lot of work to do.”

Sanders told The Olympian he and his new command staff have been busy preparing with some help from the previous administration. But he said outgoing sheriff, John Snaza, has been absent from the transition process.
