(PORTLAND, Ore.) - Multnomah County Sheriff Bob Skipper will swear in a new MCSO Cold Case Homicide Team Friday, October 24th, at 9:00 am on the third floor of the Multnomah Building.

Skipper explains that the team is a group of retired enforcement deputies volunteering to work on a number of unsolved homicide cases in the Sheriff's Office files.

"This project is a win-win partnership with the Sheriff's Office, the retirees and especially for the victims and family members of victims who have endured not knowing the truth of what happened and who was responsible for the loss of their loved one, and to bring justice and closure to these cases," the Sheriff said.

This effort is directly in alignment with the county's goals of having volunteers assist in county programs. A list of the team members, and brief biographies of each, will be available following the swear-in.

The idea of utilizing experienced, retired law enforcement personnel as Cold Case Teams has been successful in Oregon counties. Marion County, Oregon's Cold Case Team has seen substantial victories since they were formed, and a Clackamas County team is operating successfully as well.
