The Cowlitz County Sheriff’s Office was established in 1854 and has been proudly serving the community ensuring justice through dedicated service and sacrifice. While our community continues to grow and evolve, so does the Sheriff’s Office. With the election of Sheriff Brad Thurman, the Sheriff’s Office has begun a new era in policing for Cowlitz County with a commitment to ensure the quality of life for all citizens.

Due to an expected influx of fingerprints, please expect a delay when you come in. There are only two people allowed in the lobby at a time and masks are required, they will be provided if you do not have one. Before we take you back for fingerprints, we will have you sanitize your hands and ask you a couple basic health questions. Thank you for your patience as we work through this.

Cowlitz County residents who live outside city limits may schedule other fingerprints online here.
