(SALEM, Ore.) - Marion County Sheriff Jason Myers, says he is pleased to announce the promotion of Sheila Lorance to Jail Commander. Lorance's name is likely familiar to our readers; she has for some time functioned as the public information officer for the sheriff's office. Commander Lorance started her career in Law Enforcement with the Oregon Department of Corrections in 1986. She was hired by the Marion County Sheriff's Office in 1987, working as a Parole and Probation Deputy. She was promoted to Sergeant and later Lieutenant where she was responsible for supervising Parole and Probation Operations.

In 2007, Lorance began working in the Sheriff's Office Operations Division serving as an Administrative Lieutenant and Public Information Officer.

Commander Lorance has what Myers describes as, "a very well balanced background working in both Community Corrections and Administration. She possesses a Bachelors of Science degree from Western Oregon University and has completed the Oregon State Sheriffs' Association Command College. She also holds an Executive Certificate (the highest level of certification) from the Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training."

He says Commander Lorance has shown (throughout her 20 plus year career) a true desire to work toward the greater good of our community.

"Commander Lorance has demonstrated a commitment to the Sheriff's Office mission, core functions and top ten objectives. She has great listening and communication skills, and will continue to be an excellent leader in her new role."
