East Salem Service District (ESSD) Public Safety Services
Dedicated Patrol Deputies
The communities of Hayesville and Four Corners have many of the characteristics and defined boundaries that make them similar to incorporated cities. To better serve these communities, Marion County established a public safety fee within the East Salem Service District. Ten patrol deputies will be assigned to the district, providing two deputies 24 hours per day, seven days per week.
ESSD Senior Deputy Chris Bangs holds a new patch that was designed by a Stephens Middle School 8th grader. The patch will be on ESSD vehicles and worn by ESSD deputies. See the patch design process in the video below!
ESSD Deputies in Training
Deputy Bangs has been working in the ESSD since January 2019. After a recruitment and hiring process, six deputies are in new employee orientation and three are already attending the police academy for their basic training. Hiring and training a full-time deputy takes time, but we expect five of those in training to achieve solo status by October 2019. The remaining four should complete training a few months after that. We look forward to introducing them as they proceed through training.
We are working on substation sites in Hayesville area (at Chemeketa Community College) and off State St. in Four Corners area.
