White Center Deputy Dan Shaw honors career with final class act at retirement



Dan Shaw, who worked as a King County Sheriff’s deputy in White Center for the last 27 years, completed his final service to the community by feeding the homeless.

The Sheriff’s Office hired Shaw in 1988 after he left the US Air Force. Shaw happily worked the vast majority of his career serving the citizens of White Center. On Aug. 23, his last day as a deputy, Shaw bought eight buckets of chicken and all of the sides to feed the homeless in the community where he loved to work.

In a letter to some of his coworkers upon his retirement, Shaw stated:

“Thanks for the many wonderful memories….. especially to all of my cop friends……and to the wonderful dispatchers and call receivers that have their hands and (foot), literally on the heartbeat of patrol……thank you from the bottom of my heart. I wish I could just ramble on about the people that have helped me throughout my career. It is a team and a family that I will miss. If you have any kind thoughts about me in any way, shape, or form, it is because of your partnership with me.“

Deputy Dan Shaw’s call sign was 1-King-12 with the King County Sheriff’s Office, and he was “truly a class act until the end.”

The Sheriff’s Office – and The White Center Blog – wishes Citizen Dan Shaw the absolute best in his retirement.
