Sheriff’s Office Gives Away Uniforms to help Homeless In a recent clean-up effort, members of the Marion County Sheriff’s Office Community Resource Unit (CRU) found 14 boxes of uniform items that were scheduled to be destroyed. Many uniform items must be properly disposed of to ensure they aren’t misused; however, some items are simply “off the shelf.” CRU and its volunteers sorted through the boxes, setting aside items that were in good repair, so that they could be donated. When the clean-up project was complete, 170 pairs of durable, six-pocket pants were salvaged. These particular items were too worn for the uniform look of deputies, but still had some life left in them. The pants are a design that anyone could purchase, and they do not have any names, ranks, insignias or any markings that alone could be mistaken as a deputy sheriff’s uniform. Commander Eric Hlad assisted in delivering the boxes of pants to the Union Gospel Mission, and was pleased to be part of the experience. “We believe it’s important for public safety agencies to be creative in the ways we give back. I’m glad to be part of an agency that embraces this philosophy,” he said. None of the pants donated to the UGM will be sold. The Marion County Sheriff’s Office Community Resource Unit (CRU), created under Sheriff Jason Myers’ leadership, seeks ways to serve the community and to create positive change within neighborhoods.

The Oregon Association Chiefs of Police was founded in 1953 with the intended purpose of enhancing the professionalism of Law Enforcement in Oregon. The founding Chiefs envisioned creating an association that would promote training and information sharing to facilitate the professional growth of Chiefs of Police, command staff, supervisors, line officers and support personnel. The Oregon Association Chiefs of Police rapidly became a leader both on the state and national level in the effort to enhance the profession.
