Sheriff badge

The Mission of the Wallowa County Office of Sheriff is to maintain social order and provide professional services to citizens in the community, within prescribed ethical, budgetary and constitutional constraints. As peace officers, we strive to enforce the law and maintain order in a fair and impartial manner, recognizing the need for justice, and consistent appearance of justice. We recognize that no law enforcement agency can operate at its maximum potential without supportive input from the citizens we serve. We actively solicit and encourage the cooperation of all citizens to reduce and limit the opportunities for crime and to assist in bringing to justice those who violate the law.
