New Birch Bay Neighborhood Deputy Appointed

The following is reprinted used with permission from The Northern Light newspaper, from an article in the Northern Light, Wed. July 27, 2011.

Whatcom County Sheriff’s deputy Zac Reimer has been named the new neighborhood deputy for Birch Bay after deputy Cliff Langley announced his retirement effective July 31.

Sheriff Bill Elfo said Reimer, who lives in the Birch Bay area, was chosen from a field of three candidates who submitted applications for the position. Sergeants and other command staff with the sheriff’s office reviewed the applications, and Elfo said he enlisted the help of Birch Bay Steering Committee co-chairs Kathy Berg and Doralee Booth to interview the candidates.

“We were fortunate enough to have three outstanding candidates but agreed that [Reimer] would be the best fit at this time,” Elfo said.

Reimer, who grew up in Whatcom County, started his law enforcement career with the Lummi Reservation Police Department. After working there for about two years, he joined the sheriff’s office as a deputy and has been there for eight years.

Reimer said he enjoys working in small communities because he gets to know the people there on a personal level. He said he’s looking forward to becoming a larger part of the Birch Bay community as the neighborhood deputy.

“Every community has its problems, and you try to focus in on those [as a neighborhood deputy],” Reimer said.

    Re: Deputy Sheriff Zac Reimer
    I would like to express my gratitude to Deputy Sheriff Reimer for his assistance and for his sensitive attitude towards me when my husband died in our garden December 29, 2011. He stayed with me and gave me stability while the Medic team worked hard to resuscitate my husband, and he supported me with incredible understanding when it became aware that my husband of 61 years had passed on. I want to thank you for hiring this fine man who is obviously a credit to his community and I wish to express to Deputy Sheriff Reimer my gratitude for his assistance and strength to lean on. He stayed with me until my family arrived and I am eternally grateful for this service. He was sensitive to my trying holding it together and now I am shouldering on. Thank you from the bottom of my heart – Aida Kraus, Sealinks Golf Community, 4739 S Golf Course Drive, Blaine Wa 98230
