The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) serves over 400,000 residents of Clackamas County with over 500 employees. Founded in 1845, CCSO is the county’s largest law-enforcement agency and patrols the unincorporated areas of the county as well as several cities (Wilsonville, Damascus and Happy Valley) that have contracted with CCSO to provide law enforcement-services. The Sheriff’s Office deploys many specialized units — including K9, motorcycle patrol, Dive Team, and SWAT — and also patrols all the county’s waterways and coordinates all search-and-rescue efforts within a county almost the size of Delaware, including on Mt. Hood, the world’s second-most-climbed mountain. The Sheriff’s Office maintains a top-rated jail that serves the state’s third most-populous county, offers support services to other agencies, and oversees Community Corrections, which provides post-conviction supervision and helps offenders get their lives back on track. CCSO is also a member of special multi-agency teams including the Inter-agency Child Exploitation Prevention Team (INTERCEPT), the Swift Water Incident / Flood Team (SWIFT) and the Clackamas County Inter-agency Task Force (CCITF), among others.
