Wasco County Approves Agreement Revision For Lower Deschutes Patrol

Wasco County Commissioners approved a change to an agreement with the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department to provide law enforcement services in the Lower Deschutes River area, changing it from a deputy year-round to one on a seasonal basis between April and September.  Commissioner Scott Hege says the contract has been in effect since 2014, but there has not been enough activity to justify a full-time deputy in that area.  Hege noted the County was able to fund the balance of the deputy’s position to keep it full-time and available for other needs.  Sheriff’s services will be provided in the Lower Deschutes area on an “on-call” basis in the off-season, with those activities billed directly to OPRD.
