Welcome to the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office Citizen Patrol volunteer program website. We are based out of Corbett, Oregon (just east of Portland), in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. Our band of volunteers are trained citizen-volunteers that act as extra "eyes and ears" for our deputies. The volunteers patrol with a partner to help reduce crime; particularly vehicle break-ins at places like Multnomah Falls. They also assist at numerous community events and are trained to assist police and fire personnel in the event of a disaster or other large-scale emergency. Members have all been vetted via an application process and background check. Monthly trainings insure that our volunteers are professional and proficient. If you're interested in joining, please contact Deputy Graziano (see contact info on the "About" page) and you can do a ride-along or a training session with the members.
LATEST UPDATE: 4/18/17
Over the Easter weekend, someone broke into 21 out of the 60 locked Bridal Veil Post Office lockboxes and stole mail. This occurred sometime between Sunday 4/16 at 6:30AM and Monday 4/17 at 6:30AM. This is the smallest Post Office in the U.S. and it's over 100 years old. The lockboxes are a very old but decorative style and they will eventually be replaced with the modern, plain silver colored lockboxes. Click HERE for a photo of the damage.
