Sheriff Jim Yon and his staff keep the peace, and serve the community, along side the best volunteers in the State of Oregon. From folks serving their local community working the front desk of our of our neighborhood substations, to Neighborhood Watch leaders, 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.
Volunteering with the Sheriff’s Office
The Linn County Sheriff’s Office relies heavily on the hard work of citizens who volunteer their time and energy to help us fulfill our mission.
If you would like to become a volunteer, please contact the Community Services Specialist Michael Mattingly by phone at 541-917-9182 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org . Our Volunteer Applications can be found on our Applications and Forms page.
Community service specialists are your connection to requests of the Sheriff and Sheriff’s Office staff.
Posse members volunteer their time and provide their own horse, tack and most of their own equipment.
