Your Sheriff's Office is kicking off a new campaign to help Cornelius residents know when and how to call police for non-emergency reasons.  

Residents should report issues such as graffiti, property damage, neighborhood issues, and any incidents that can cause our community to degrade.  Call non-emergency dispatch at (503) 629-0111.  Printable flyers English/Spanish

A Message from Chief Bob Ray


Chief Bob RayOn January 4, 2021, I was named as the new Chief of Police for the City of Cornelius by the Cornelius City Council, in partnership with the Washington County Sheriff's Office. I have 23 years of experience in law enforcement, serving most of that time in leadership positions. In addition to my many years as patrol sergeant, I served as the Public Information Officer for the Washington County Sheriff’s Office from 2012 through 2017. Recently, I was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant where I supervised three of our city police municipal partners for police services in Washington County. I also serve as the team lead for the Sheriff's Office Diversity, Equity and Inclusion team.


The Sheriff’s Office has provided police services to the city of Cornelius since 2014. The department serves about 13,000 residents with 13 employees, patrolling an area of 2.2 square miles. My leadership team is comprised of Sergeant Eric Stoneberg and Corporal Chris Plewik. 


Whether we are enforcing the law, attending community events, or simply having coffee with folks, I look forward to working with everyone in this rapidly growing community. I sincerely value the support and trust bestowed upon us by the public. I will hold myself and my staff accountable to always adhere to our core values. I look forward to seeing you all around town and serving you as your Chief of Police. 


~ Sincerely, Chief Bob Ray
