News Release
Extra Patrols and Prescription Delivery - 03/26/20

Linn County Sheriff Jim Yon is offering extra patrols for those businesses across the Linn County that have had to close their doors or are operating under reduced hours because of the Governor’s Executive order.  We want to do everything we can to protect everyone during these uncertain times. 

I am requesting you click the link below to get us your information, so we have a good list for our deputies to check.

We are also going to follow the Sweet Home Police Department by offering prescription medication delivery to the more vulnerable population.  In support of Governor Kate Brown's most recent Executive Order regarding social distancing, the Linn County Sheriff’s Office will begin offering a prescription pick-up and delivery service.

Effective March 30, 2020, we will pick-up and deliver life-preserving prescription medication to private residences within Linn County from pharmacies within the county. This program will be valid during the governor's executive order, currently set to expire on April 28, 2020.

Program participation is available to anyone 65 years old or older, have a life-threatening pre-existing medical condition, and lives within the county.

If you meet the above criteria, contact the Linn County Sheriff’s Office between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday at 541-967-3911. A participating resident will need to provide the following: 
- Name
- Address
- Phone Number
- Date of Birth
- Requested Prescription
- Pharmacy Name

Further, the resident must complete the following before contacting the Sheriff’s Office:
- Contact the pharmacy and order the prescription.
- Pre-pay for medicine over the phone.
- Advise the pharmacy the Linn County Sheriff’s Office will be picking up the prescription.
- Have a valid identification available when the deputy arrives at your residence.

Staff making the deliveries will always be in approved Linn County Sheriff’s Office attire with identification, personal protective equipment, and will maintain social distancing.

We are all in this together and we are simply trying to help our community the best way we can.
