Tillamook County Sheriff's Office In Action


Summer, 2014 – The Sheriff’s Office and the City of Garibaldi have had a long standing contract to provide services. Deputy Aaron Miller was hired to replace Sergeant Bob Pippenger as Garibaldi’s Deputy. Aaron was previously a Police Officer with the City of Tillamook; Aaron will do a great job. Newly promoted to Sergeant, Pippenger was transferred to the Jail Division where Bob started his career.

Recently the Oregon State Sheriffs’ Association Jail Inspectors from several different counties checked over three hundred standards at the Tillamook County Jail for compliance, during a two day process. Each Oregon jail is inspected every two years, with a self-inspection prior to the formal inspection. Standards include: administration, organization, and management; fiscal management; personnel; training and staff development; facility information systems; fire safety and emergency procedures; security and control; special management inmates; food service; sanitation and hygiene; health care services; inmate rights; inmate rules and discipline; communication, mail, and visiting; admission and release; classification; inmate services and programs; physical plant; and work release. Lieutenant Jon Briscoe and his staff did an excellent job preparing for the inspection. Inspectors found only two standards were in need of improvement, both were corrected within a few weeks after the inspection. Very well done.

The National Weather Service Portland recently renewed Tillamook County’s designation of Tsunami Ready and Storm Ready. Tillamook County first achieved the designation in 2005 and has continued to meet all requirements since then. The elements are reviewed every four years by the National Weather Service (NWS) Portland to ensure continued compliance. In a letter from NOAAs Warning Coordination Meteorologist at National Weather Service Portland dated April 10, 2014, Tyree Wilde stated, “Tillamook County, Oregon Emergency Management, and Oregon’s Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI) continue to do an outstanding job of promoting Tsunami awareness throughout the county.” Sheriff’s Office Emergency Manager Gordon McCraw said “the county was also awarded a Tsunami Ready Certificate of Achievement in 2008, for improving the timeliness and effectiveness of hazardous weather warnings for the public through a diligent and proactive approach of increasing communications and preparedness.
