Welcome to your Chelan County Sheriff's Office

Chief for a Day is Kelvin Ramos

Kelvin Ramos

This years “Chief for a Day” celebration will be Thursday, April 24th.  The Chelan County Sheriff’s Office has selected 12 year old Kelvin Ramos of Peshastin to be our little “Sheriff.”  Kelvin was born with Duchenne muscular dystrophy and has no use of his legs.  He is just a little guy with a great big heart and smile to go along with it. 

He was asked “So Kelvin, what is the first thing you want to do as the new Sheriff?”  In a “matter-of-fact” form, he said, “To help people” , “….and make sure poor people have food!” 

So in honor of Kelvin and his family, The Chelan County Sheriff’s Office would like to start a “Food Drive” to make his wish come true.  The “Light House Ministries” of Wenatchee has been contacted and told of our intent and they are excited.  With the remainder of March and most of April, we are hoping to make a big difference in the Wenatchee Valley by granting Kelvin his wish “To help people and make sure poor people have food.”  Our intent is to collect the food by Wednesday, April 23rd and help Kelvin and his family deliver it to the Light House Ministries the following day after the celebration in the park.

We, the management of the Chelan County Sheriff's Office, pledge to do our best in the management of this organization. We recognize that the men and women of this organization are its future. It is our strong belief that the members of this office and its auxiliaries have the talents and expertise to take this Sheriff's Office forward for the betterment of Chelan County. Our mission is to work in partnership with the community to enhance the quality of life for the people in Chelan County through efficient and effective service by prevention, intervention, and enforcement.
