Sheriff Craig Roberts
Born and raised in Clackamas County, Craig Roberts has risen through the ranks of the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office over the past 30 years. After starting out as a reserve deputy, he was hired full-time and subsequently served as a member of SWAT, an undercover narcotics investigator, and a major crimes detective. Along the way, he has launched numerous initiatives and programs with the aim of protecting children from abuse, including a nationally recognized conference and a regional Internet crimes team that targets sexual predators who prey on children. First elected Sheriff in 2004, Roberts sought a $42.7 million public safety levy that allowed him to hire 49 new deputies and reopen 84 jail beds. In 2008, he emerged from the May primary with almost 80 percent of the vote in a three-way race, clearing the path for another four-year term in office.
