JEFFERSON COUNTY SHERIFF’S FOUNDATION
For some time now various concerns regarding incidents of crime have been discussed on NextDoor. These concerns are common in all neighborhoods but become extremely frustrating for both citizens and law enforcement due to the seeming lack of communications. The following information is offered in an attempt to clarify some of the problems and give the citizens of our community (all of the unincorporated area) of Jefferson County a basic reference source for many of the areas of concern.
Law Enforcement in Jefferson County (unincorporated) is provided by the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office under the Elected Sheriff David Stanko. Port Townsend, an incorporated city) has its own Police Department. Traffic Enforcement on State Highways is provided by the Washington State Patrol.
