History Made At The Sheriff’s Office – Very 1st Corporal At The Jail – Very 1St Female Corporal. In the history of the Mason County Sheriff’s Office established in 1854, there has never been the rank and position of Corporal. Today, Friday, July 11, 2014, Tammy Filyaw was promoted to the rank of Corporal by Mason County Sheriff Casey Salisbury. Corporal Filyaw is also the very first female Corporal in the history of the Mason County Sheriff’s Office.
Sheriff Salisbury stated that both the Mason County Sheriff’s Office and the citizens that we serve are fortunate to have such a high caliber of Deputies and Officers to be promoted to positions of leadership. This speaks well of the entire Sheriff’s Office, and I am proud to continue the legacy of professionalism by promoting personnel such as Corporal Filyaw.
Corporal Tammy Filyaw is the first of four Corporals to be promoted from Jail Officers and the fifth Corporal overall to be promoted in the Sheriff’s Office. Corporal Filyaw is a resident of Shelton and has worked for the Mason County Sheriff’s Office for approximately three and a half years.
