Sheriff's office and Newberg-Dundee police will close to public Monday

Officers will still answer phones, respond to emergencies

The Yamhill County Sheriff’s Office will continue working, but will close its office to the public beginning Monday, to protect staff from possible contact with the coronavirus. The Newberg-Dundee Police department announced it is doing the same.

The closure includes Dog Control licensing. Items emailed to the Sheriff’s Office or mailed through the postal service will be processed normally. Items placed in the secure drop box in the exterior lobby will also continue to be processed.

Concealed Handgun License processing and fingerprinting services will be suspended until further notice.

Patrol Deputies are being instructed to answer calls for service via telephone if possible but will continue to respond in person to emergency situations and those wishing personal contact.
