Your Sheriff's Patrol Division works to support public safety and conserve peace for everyone in Washington County.

In unincorporated areas, Sheriff’s deputies are the primary first responders when community members call for service. Deputies also initiate enforcement action (such as issuing traffic citations), investigate misdemeanor and felony crimes, and sustain partnerships with community members, business owners, neighborhoods, and community groups. 

On this page, you can access information and services related to our Patrol Division. If you have questions or do not see what you are looking for, please reach out. You can contact us 24 hours a day at 503-846-2700.
