Sandstom seeking another term as coroner

Kitsap County Coroner Greg Sandstrom announced Feb. 18 he will seek another term.

Sandstrom, a Washington State Patrol trooper for 13 years, has been coroner since 1999 and before that was a deputy coroner for five years.

“It has been my privilege to serve the citizens of Kitsap County,” said Sandstrom. “I am proud they’ve entrusted the coroner’s office to me and I look forward to providing them with the same level of professionalism and dedication for four more years.”

He points to many accomplishments — among them are the design and completion of a state-of-the-art facility at the Bremerton Readiness Center and the establishment of regional partnerships with other counties for autopsies and emergency response.

He also started the “Cribs for Kids” program, ensuring that every baby has a safe environment to sleep.

Sandstrom said he is looking forward to another term to continue to enhance the effectiveness and level of service of the coroner’s office.

His goals include the establishment of a reserve program to provide a professional learning opportunity for those interested in a career in death investigation. He will work to obtain national certification with the International Coroners and Medical Examiners Association for his office and facility.

Additionally, he plans to provide regional support to additional surrounding counties.
