Our Mission... "To provide public safety services to our community with a professional, courteous, well trained staff who consistently does the right thing at the right time for the right reason."

This includes crime prevention, deterrence, apprehension and detention of offenders, recovery and return of property, the safe movement of traffic and public service. Peace, in a free society, depends on voluntary compliance with the law.

Malheur County is one of the largest counties in Oregon. We are experiencing a growth in our population that only adds to the animated diversity that makes it such an appealing place to live and raise a family. As Malheur County continues to grow, the enduring partnership of citizens and law enforcement becomes of greater importance. 

With this partnership in mind, we are excited to include the Internet in our continuing  effort toward using the best and most up-to-date methods available for communicating with our community. We invite you to explore the site and make known your thoughts and ideas on improving our newest endeavor.
