Ty Trenary has been named Snohomish County sheriff by the Snohomish County Council.

Trenary, 47, replaces John Lovick who left the job to become Snohomish County executive.

Trenary began his 25-year-career as a police officer in Eatonville, Pierce County, and joined the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office in 1991, according to a release from the county.

His most recent post has been serving as leader of the North Precinct. He spent four years as the contract police chief of Stanwood and has worked in patrol, community policing and administration, the release says.

Trenary and his wife, Vicki have two daughters and have resided in Snohomish County for more than 20 years.

“I believe that Snohomish County is an excellent place to raise a family and I want to focus on the feeling of safety in our community,” he said.  “Dedication to excellence and community partnerships are key to the success of our organization.”

Trenary will serve as sheriff until there’s an election in fall 2014.
