It is the mission of the Clark County Sheriff's Office to work in partnership with our diverse communities to promote and enhance the safety and the quality of life in Clark County.
We respond to a variety of incidents and concerns ranging from domestic violence, traffic violations, and drug abuse to assault, burglary, or identity theft. We use regional partnerships and cutting-edge technology to investigate crimes, and implement innovative programs that balance incarceration with treatment, education, and community service.
Established in 1849 we are the oldest law enforcement organization in the state of Washington. We have been serving Clark County for over 150 years.
