Douglas County Sheriff's Office

Douglas County Sheriff's Office started the Motor Unit program in the early 90's, riding Kawasaki Police Special KZ 1000.  Approximately 8 years later we transitioned to the Harley Davidson Police Motorcycles.  Currently, we are evaluating other police motorcycle packages.

We have 7 motor Deputies, 6 currently assigned to the unit.
Deputy Ron King was killed in 1999, he was riding his police motorcycle and was hit and killed by a drunk driver.  His partner, Chris Washburn, was seriously injured, but made a full recovery. A card we made in tribute to Ron King.
