The Crook County Sheriff’s Office is an organization dedicated to providing the highest quality of law enforcement to our community. Currently, the Crook County Sheriff's Office is in the process of re-establishing it's K9 program to serve the citizens of Crook County.
In support of our mission statement and values, the Crook County Sheriff’s Office is in need of a Drug Detection K9. The Drug Detection K9 would allow our organization the ability to provide optimal service to the public in the areas of drugs in our community and related criminal activity.
Currently the Crook County Sheriff’s Office and the Prineville Police Department heavily rely upon outside agencies for the assistance of Drug Detection K9’s.
THIS WE KNOW!
◾Crook County Sheriff’s Office covers an area of 2,991 square miles.
◾Within the county’s jurisdiction are several highways: Highway 26, Highway 370 (O’Neil Hwy), Highway 126, and Highway 27.
◾These highways connect with Highway 97 and/or Highway 20. Highway 97 has been identified as one of the top drug trafficking highways in Oregon.
◾The use of a Drug Detection K-9 is one of the most effective tools in combating drugs.
◾The Crook County Sheriff's Office has become heavily reliant on outside agencies for assistance with drug detection K9's.
◾A large majority of all person and property crimes that occur within the Crook County are related to illegal drugs.
◾The recent economic decline has resulted in diminished and reduced budgets, which prevents the Crook County Sheriff's Office from re-establishing this program.
