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

From the Chief's Desk

A Message from Sheriff's Chief Al Roque

As of July 2014, the Sheriff's Office is proud to serve the City of Cornelius.  Former Chief Moss accepted a promotion to another assignment within the Sheriff's Office in January of 2016.  As a result, I (Lieutenant Al Roque) have been assigned as the Chief of Police to the Cornelius community, and I report to the City Manager. Sergeant Mark Trost supervises the deputies on patrol, with the assistance of Corporal Jordan Weston.


The city is patrolled by Washington County Sheriff's Office Deputies in Cornelius police uniforms. This past year, you may have noticed a new look on the patrol vehicles that incorporates Sheriff's Office branding into a Cornelius city designation. In addition to 13 full time contract positions in Cornelius, the vast Sheriff's Office resources are utilized regularly including drug, gang and K-9 teams and community outreach resources. For your convenience, many services are available online, using the links to the right of this page. 

Our focus as your public servants is to provide responsive and professional police services to improve the safety and security of the city. The reality is we are all in this together and we encourage you to report suspicious or potential criminal activity according to our See Something, Say Something campaign as noted above.

We will continue to work hard to keep the community informed through this website, the WC Sheriff at Cornelius Facebook, Twitter, and our monthly free e-mail newsletter called Sheriff's Office News.  We invite you to join the conversations and let us know how we are doing.


I look forward to seeing you around town and at the many community events that makes Cornelius "Oregon's family town."


~ Sincerely, Police Chief and Lieutenant Al Roque
