Tillamook County Sheriff's Office In Action


Fall, 2014 – During late August, Sheriff ís Office deputies and certified volunteers responded to the Tillamook State Forest near the Jordon Creek and Diamond Mill for two missing men who left their camp late in the evening. This area has hundreds of miles of roads and very steep areas for off highway vehicle use. On the third day of searching at about 8:15pm, searchers located Justin Norton and Nicholas Santangelo deceased, due to a fatal vehicle crash. Their vehicle left a narrow gravel road and rolled several hundred feet down a steep hillside, in an area with heavy growth and trees, making detection difficult for searchers on the ground and nearly impossible to locate by aircraft.

Both were ejected from the SUV. Due to the loss of light, the recovery of the victims and the investigation resumed on day four in the morning and required a High Angle Rope Team, and some preparation for the technical recovery and the investigation to continue.

Thanks very much to the following list of agencies and individuals who were a big part of the hours spent to recover the victims for their families: Mountain Wave Emergency Communications volunteers, Yamhill County Sheriff ís Office, Marion County Sheriff ís Office, Tillamook County Sheriff ís Office Volunteer Search and Rescue, Oregon Department of Forestry, Air National Guard Salem, Department of Corrections South Fork Prison Camp, and friends and family of Justin and Nicholas.

Deputy Glenn Watson was hired as the new Parole and Probation Deputy. Glenn worked as a Corrections Deputy in the jail since December of 2010 prior to transferring. Glenn will do a great job.

Sheriff ís Office Emergency Management has been selected to receive an Oregon State Service Corps (OSSC) member for the 2014-2015 service year. OSSC is a statewide AmeriCorps program whose sponsoring agency is the American Red Cross, and provides nonprofits, community, faith-based organizations, government agencies, and schools the opportunity to sponsor an AmeriCorps member. This AmeriCorps member will focus on disaster preparedness, response, resilience or mitigation in the southern part of Tillamook County. We are fortunate to have a premier Emergency Volunteer Corps (EVC) that has organized in North Tillamook County. We hope to organize the volunteers in South Tillamook County using this same model that has worked so well for the EVC of Nehalem Bay. This AmeriCorps individual will be a big help in achieving this goal during the 10 months they serve.
