Office of Professional Standards 

In conjunction with the Sheriff’s Office mission of making Lane County a safer place to live, the Sheriff and his staff envision the Lane County Sheriff’s Office serving as a premier law enforcement and correctional agency in the State of Oregon.  All employees of the Lane County Sheriff’s Office begin their careers by affirming the following oath and then reaffirming the oath every four years coinciding with the election into office of the Sheriff:


name, being duly sworn, say that I will support the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of Oregon and that I will perform the duties of position/title to the best of my ability.”


Employees of the Sheriff’s Office have contact and interaction with thousands of Lane County citizens every year.  The Sheriff expects all employees to perform their duties to the best of their ability and is dedicated to creating an environment which encourages the highest standards of integrity.


The Sheriff’s Office values feedback from the community regarding the conduct of employees and the implementation of policies.  Commendations, allegations of misconduct and inquiries regarding policy are all submitted to the Office of Professional Standards in order to appropriately address concerns received from the citizens of Lane County.   


We appreciate hearing from you when our employees are meeting or exceeding your expectations.  However, at times, as in any organization, deviations from ideal performance can occur.  Allegations of misconduct against personnel are investigated thoroughly and objectively.  


Because issues regarding traffic citations or arrests must be resolved through the court system, the Office of Professional Standards will not investigate these complaints, or inquiries.


In order to file an inquiry, commendation or complaint, please read the instructions at Commendation & Complaints.
