The Sheriff We Need

The Sheriff We Need

Lieutenant Cyndie Fajardo

Cyndie began her Law Enforcement career in Colorado and came to Pierce County during the 1988 levy hiring.  Her leadership assignments have been impressive, working in patrol, narcotics, commanding the Parkland-Spanaway Precinct and multiple community programs.  Cyndie is currently a Task Force Leader for the Washington State Urban Search and Rescue and has responded to World Trade Center, Hurricane Katrina, OSO Landslide, and a number of other national disasters.

A graduate of the FBI National Academy, holding a Master of Arts in Organizational Management, she also served as the Contract Director of Public Safety for the Town of Steilacoom.

“I have worked the streets and neighborhoods of Pierce County on the front lines and in managing programs to support crime prevention and community interests.  I look forward to continuing my service to the citizens of Pierce County as your next Sheriff”

– Lieutenant Cyndie Fajardo, Sheriff Candidate


“Community trust and transparency will be the forefront of my administration. We need to work hard to find a path to heal and understand the inequality and challenges facing members of this community. This will take time, but we cannot give up, our children’s future depends on it.”


If you ask Cyndie about her family she will tell you she has two, her home family and her work family.

Cyndie and her husband Gabriel live on a small farm in South Pierce County, in the Mountain Detachment which is protected by the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department. Family is very important to Cyndie and the Fajardo home is always the gathering place for holidays and special occasions. The children are all grown and live locally, opting for life in the city. Cyndie and Gabe’s two grandsons and granddaughter are their pride and joy. To keep her life balanced, Cyndie enjoys competitive horsemanship and life on the farm.

Public Safety

“I have the will and dedication to look inwards at what our department should be in its reflection of our community. I have the courage to take the steps necessary, as a leader in the law enforcement community, to create an environment where all our citizens can, with confidence, say they feel safe and represented.”
