2018 Citizens' Academy

The Yamhill County Sheriff’s Office invites you to participate in our 2018 Citizens’ Academy! We believe it is an important part of our mission to provide citizens with information about our cooperative partnerships within our community and how we approach our commitment to problem-oriented policing. It is our intention to provide our citizens with a comprehensive program that can assist with promoting understanding between the community we serve and our office through education and interaction. The Citizens’ Academy serves as an opportunity to meet Sheriff’s Office employees and to better understand the role we play in the Yamhill County community. For more information, including how to apply, please visit our Citizens' Academy page.

Citizens' Advisory Board

The purpose of the Citizens’ Advisory Board is to work collaboratively, through discussion and reflection, to better the law enforcement/community relationship between the Yamhill County Sheriff’s Office (YCSO) and the Yamhill County community. The Board is dedicated to the respectful exchange of information, concerns, and ideas relative to law enforcement services provided by the Yamhill County Sheriff’s Office. For more information on the Board, including how to apply, please visit our Citizens Advisory Board page.
