Sheriff Michelle Duncan and her staff keep the peace, and serve the community, along side the best volunteers in the State of Oregon. From Neighborhood Watch leaders to Sheriff’s Mounted Posse Deputies, and Search & Rescue volunteers, more than 200 people from around Linn County volunteer on a regular basis with the Sheriff’s Office.
