Sheriff’s Office to host open house in Sisters

 

Last updated 1/11/2023 at Noon



Local citizens will get a chance to get to know their local Deschutes County Sheriff’s Deputies and learn more about how law enforcement in Sisters Country works in a two-day Community Academy set for January 18-19 at the Sisters-Camp Sherman Fire District Community Hall.

The event is in an open house format, so anyone can drop in and interact with DCSO personnel.

Lt. Chad Davis told The Nugget that the centerpiece of the event is an opportunity to meet the cadre of Sisters deputies. Under the current contract between the City of Sisters and DCSO, Sisters has its own set of deputies who work the town and Sisters Country much as if they were Sisters’ own police force.

The Academy offers a chance to meet them face-to-face, along with Deputy Brent Crosswhite, who serves as School Resource Officer in the Sisters School District.

The introduction to the Sisters deputies is set for the Wednesday, January 18 session, which starts at 6 p.m.

Sheriff Shane Nelson will be on hand, along with the DCSO management team.

Attendees will also get a chance to learn how the jail operates and get an introduction to the DCSO K-9 program.

The second evening, Thursday, January 19, will serve up an introduction to the Patrol Division and the DCSO detectives, as well as the Search & Rescue program and an introduction to the Central Oregon Drug Enforcement Team (CODE) and the Street Crimes unit. The evening will wrap up with an exploration of the equipment and mission of the DCSO S.W.A.T. Unit.

Both evenings of the Academy run 6 to 9 p.m., and Lt. Davis said that there will be “lots of time for questions.”
