I am so honored to announce that my guest this week will be Sheriff Urquhart! He serves as the chief county-level law enforcement official for 1.9 million people and oversees the 1000+ employees of the King County Sheriff’s Office. The He will appear on Tuesday May 2nd at 10am PST. The role of law enforcement in immigration has never been so important and controversial. There is a struggle between the new administration’s vision of police powers and the realities and extent of police authority. Sheriff Urqhart will talk to us about executive orders, sanctuary cities, police authority, and much more!

His career has included stints as a Patrol Officer, Field Training Officer, Master Police Officer, Sergeant, street-level vice/narcotics detective, public information officer and administrative aide to two sheriffs. He has investigated everything from property crimes to homicides.
