About Sheriff Rogers

The Sheriff’s Office is now online with new policies and procedures, and daily training bulletins. It has taken almost a year but so far, we are very happy to be partnered with Lexipol.

About the Wallowa County Sheriff's Office


Spring, 2017 – It has been a very long winter in Wallowa County as it has throughout the State, with close to record amounts of snowfall. There was some flooding on the Grand Ronde River, but we are fortunate that it was not as bad as many other areas. Steve Rogers remains our sheriff for another four years, running unopposed in the election. We did lose Deputy Joe Reeves to retirement and wish him the best in his future endeavors, mainly fishing.

Message from the OSSA President

washington-pat-garrettAs the newly elected president, I am honored to represent all 36 Oregon sheriffs.

The sheriff has historically been the chief executive officer of the county, and this is still true under Oregon law. Elected by you and answering directly to the voters, your sheriff can be an effective voice of the people in the serious work of protecting the community. OSSA enables us to work together to serve you best.

By way of introduction, I am in my second term as the Washington County Sheriff, where deputies serve over a half million residents across 727 square miles of rural areas, urban communities, and cities. Our deputies also operate the only county jail. While Oregon counties are diverse in terms of climate, population, and economic drivers, your sheriffs work together to solve problems and challenges that we have in common.

The sheriffs of America have always played a significant role in the history of our nation; in fact, the office of Sheriff was the first county office established in the United States. Also, the first person to read the Declaration of Independence publicly was Philadelphia Sheriff John Nixon in Pennsylvania in 1776.

I look forward to working together to strengthen the office of Sheriff and the communities we proudly serve. Thank you for your continued support of the men and women on shift every day to keep our diverse and proud communities safe.


Pat Garrett
President and Washington County Sheriff.
