ESPD Advisory Committee

ESPD Advisory Committee


The Enhanced Sheriff's Patrol District (ESPD) Advisory Committee works with Sheriff Garrett and other officials from the Sheriff's Office to review and offer recommendations regarding the level and type of police service in the ESPD. The committee also advises the Sheriff on strategic goals and direction for the law enforcement district. Future considerations will be to review other long-range opportunities for future enhanced law enforcement and community collaboration.

The ESPD provides enhanced patrol response to over 215,000 residents in the urban areas outside of cities in Washington County, including Bethany, Cedar Mill, Cedar Hills, Aloha, Reedville, Garden Home, Metzger, Rock Creek, Raleigh Hills, Bull Mountain, Bonny Slope, West Slope, Oak Hills, and more. Voters first approved the ESPD in 1987 and all local option levies since then. Not sure if you live in the ESPD? Find out here.
