Sandy Police win public-safety contract

Transition to new provider under way, will continue through September


The Estacada City Council has agreed to end its long-standing contract with the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office in favor of awarding its public-safety contract to the Sandy Police Department.

The council made its decision on Monday, May 13.

Several steps remain before the transition is complete.

The Sandy City Council must approve the contract as well. Its decision is expected at its June 4 council meeting, when they vote to approve their budget.

Estacada City Manager Bill Elliott has submitted the proposed Sandy police contract to the Estacada City Attorney.

The City Managers from both cities will need to meet to coordinate the specifics of the contract.

Elliott will meet with Sandy Police Chief Kim Yamashita to determine the steps for the transition.

The official transition will not be complete until Oct. 1.

The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office will continue to serve Estacada until that time.
