Cities that contract for policing services enjoy having highly trained, well-equipped, and experienced deputies, crime prevention specialists, and quicker responses to more types of calls . . . for less money.
The Sheriff's Office also provides policing services on a temporary basis, such as staffing the Chief of Police positions in the cities of Sherwood and Forest Grove. Another example is the deputy assigned this year in the City of Cornelius.
By purchasing services from the Sheriff's Office, a much larger organization, these cities gain efficiencies and save money - in addition to the benefits described above.
