The patch of the Clackamas County, Oregon, Sheriff’s Office features the state’s most recognized landmark—Mt. Hood—climbed more often than any other mountain in North America. The snow-capped peak stands above verdant forests and the Sandy River, which flows from the Reid Glacier on the mountain’s southwest flank and supplies drinking water to nearby Portland. Serving a mix of rural and urban communities spread over a land area almost the size of Delaware, the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office was established in 1845, 14 years before the Oregon Territory became a state.
