Kitsap County Sheriff, Steve Boyer
Keynote Speaker

“You folks are now productive members of society.  I meet graduates everywhere.  They own their own businesses.  They are proud people.”
"We are all critical to the success of these graduates -- every one of us.  They need our support.  The court doesn't last forever, but we can be there for these men and women every day."

We acknowledge the hard work and of these participants who have successfully completed the Drug Court program.


Robert, Graduate
"I am thankful for my family and for second chances."


Josh, Graduate
To Judge Roof: "Thank you for being the man you are."


Stacy, Graduate
"Thank you to the Drug Court team.
  I could not have gotten as far
as I have without my
counselor's support."


Sean, Graduate
“I am grateful for the patience
the program showed me in the beginning.  I am especially
grateful for my grandparents."


Marice, Graduate
"I had no hope.  This program saves lives.  It saved mine.  It's amazing.  I'm grateful to have my life back."


Angela, Graduate
"If you all wouldn't have cared, I wouldn't have cared.  You all saved my life; for that I am forever grateful."


Drug Court Graduates and Judge Jay B. Roof 

The graduates are people who chose courage.  They chose
to acknowledge their disease and break the cycle.
graduates standing here today are testament that the
human spirit is resilient and that this program works.
This is a court of hope…a court of promise.  These
graduates now have the opportunity to realize their potential.”
