Welcome to the official page for our Prosecutor Mark Lindquist. Thanks for visiting.
Please join us on Thursday, November 2, at Kings Books, 7 pm, for our 9th Annual Signed Book and Wine Auction.
Famous authors, fine wines, and fun people always make this a first rate event! As in past years, Ed Troyer and Kris “Sonics Guy” Brannon will share emcee and auctioneer duties. Best selling books by local authors, including Maria Semple, Garth Stein, and our Prosecutor, will be auctioned off.
Thanks to everyone who made our Summer Concert fundraiser with the Beatniks and Peter Buck of R.E.M. a success. Images from that party and other events are posted on our Pictures page.
Please see the message from our Prosecutor Mark Lindquist below.
Representing the People
As the people’s lawyer, I am committed to keeping our community safe and strong. I’m a career prosecutor with over 20 years of service in the office.
Pursuing Justice, Protecting Our Community
With our new High Priority Offender team, we are vigorously prosecuting the small percentage of the criminals who are committing a large percentage of the crimes. We are using data and technology to identify and target the worst offenders. I’m confident this innovative program will reduce crime and make our community safer.
We’ve successfully reduced property crime by collaborating with law enforcement and we pursue justice every day on the thousands of cases we handle each year.
Our Elder Abuse Unit, which I formed in 2011, is a leader in the state for both prosecution and prevention of elder ebuse. We are committed to protecting elders and other vulnerable victims.
Serving our Community, Keeping It Safe
In addition to the vigorous prosecution of criminals, we collaborate with the community on access to justice as well as intervention and prevention, including successful efforts to stop the state from dumping felons from other counties onto our streets. We take strong and principled stands in both the civil and criminal arenas.
I’ve successfully lobbied the legislature for laws to improve public safety, such as stricter penalties for vehicular homicide, the closing of legal loopholes, and improvements in mental health care. Please check the Media page for updates as the good people in our Prosecutor’s Office continue to make our community safer.
I’ve recently begun posting my various writings on public safety, leadership, and life on a new Medium page.
We work for the public and therefore I believe in continually communicating with the public we serve.
Finally, I’m always available to speak with community groups.
Thank you. It’s a privilege to serve.
