News Release
New Communications Director (Photo) - 12/06/19

After careful consideration and time, and hearing from the current communications team and command staff, the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office has selected a media professional to lead the Communications Unit. The agency is pleased to announce our new communications director Chris Liedle.

Liedle comes to us from KATU, where he worked as a reporter for more than four years. Prior to that, he was employed as a multimedia journalist in Eugene. In all, he brings about eight years of media experience, which will prove valuable in this new role.

We want to thank Sgt. Brandon White for leading the unit for a year and a half. Sgt. White is staying on with the agency and is sliding to another role.

News media, the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office is discontinuing the PIO pager. All media inquiries must be placed to the PIO email, This is to ensure a timelier response. The Communications Unit office number remains the same, (503) 988-2300.
