Sheriff's Corner

Our 6th deputy, Brian Hornback, is now graduated from the academy and on his field training with deputies on various shifts. Deputy Hornback graduated #1 in academics and #1 overall in a class of 30. He was competing against much larger agencies including Seattle PD, Clark County, and Vancouver PD. That is quite an accomplishment. Brian used to work as a corrections officer/dispatcher for the Sheriff’s Office. Now he is a welcomed member of patrol.

You may have already noticed we now have deputies working longer hours into the evening and early morning hours. Once Deputy Hornback is on his own we will have coverage even longer into the wee hours of the morning. At times non-emergency calls for service in the late evening have had to hold until a deputy logged on in the morning. Now there is a deputy on duty longer at night and early morning to handle calls that might otherwise hold for several hours. Also, it is nice to know there is a deputy patrolling the neighborhoods at a later time.

Wahkiakum County Sheriff’s Office is actively recruiting members for our Search and Rescue (SAR) team. We are looking for energetic adults and teens from our community that are willing to be trained to search for lost people in our county as well as surrounding counties if the need arises. We meet for training one Saturday and one Wednesday evening per month. If you are interested in joining or would like to get more information contact Beau Renfro renfrob@co.wahkiakum, 795-3242, or see our booth at the fair.
