Ten years ago this week, King County Sheriff’s Deputy Richard Herzog was tragically killed in the line of duty while working in the city of Newcastle. Herzog had worked in Newcastle for several years and knew many of the residents and businesses.

“One thing we most often hear from people about the way they remember Rich is his great connection with the public,” said Newcastle Police Chief Melinda Irvine.  “Citizens knew Rich and enjoyed interacting with him.”

This year, the City of Newcastle and the King County Sheriff’s Office will honor Rich’s memory by honoring the way Rich interacted with the public he served at Police Day in the Park from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on June 23 at Lake Boren Park.

Residents will be able to check out tools used in law enforcement, meet patrol officers and special investigations deputies and interact as a family to learn how to solve crime via a CSI Newcastle demonstration, where kids of all ages can search for clues.

There will be K9 and marine unit demonstrations, members of search and rescue and members of the 911 communication center on hand. Guardian One, the KCSO helicopter, will also be onsite for residents to view.

The AFIS unit, or the fingerprinting unit, will also be available for residents.
