Statistics of Washington County Sherrifs

I feel that the department has rather high crime rate for the city, but I think that it depends not only on the work of the department. I also think that the current Law Enforcement Center tries to respond to the crimes in the city and makes certain improvements. I think that communication and investigation can be improved. As for the service, I think that it is very good. I can see that the whole department is working, but certainly needs improvements and innovative approaches.

According to Washington County (2011), “the Sheriff’s Office also operates several remote “substations” around the county for use by patrol deputies and investigators to complete reports in the community without having to drive back to the Law Enforcement Center in Stillwater. Substation offices are not generally staffed on a regular basis and are not publicly accessible.”
