THE PATROL DIVISION
The patrol division is responsible for patrolling the County and enforcing criminal and traffic laws. In addition to normal patrol duties, the patrol division has two marine deputies, one forest deputy, two detectives assigned to investigations, one detective assigned to LINT, and two deputies who provide patrol service to the citizens of Waldport.
Mountain bike patrol
The Lincoln County Sheriff's Office has several deputies that are trained in mountain bike patrol. The deputies ride bikes during special events, including parades and festivals. A deputy on a bicycle is highly mobile, able to respond quickly in heavy foot or vehicular traffic. The deputy can provide focused patrols in problem areas and can check areas that he might otherwise overlook from a patrol vehicle.
The marine patrol is 80% funded by the State Marine Board. The marine deputies are responsible for ensuring boater safety on the waterways of Lincoln County. Lincoln County's Marine Patrol Deputies must complete an 80-hour marine patrol training course and annual update training in advanced marine patrol and education techniques.
The forest deputy is funded by the Lincoln County Solid Waste district and private timber companies. The forest deputy enforces laws on private timber lands located within Lincoln County.
