Domestic Violence Call Leads To SWAT Response (Photo) - 08/17/19

At approximately 10:41 pm on August 16th, deputies were dispatched to a domestic disturbance in the 300 block of NE Crest Street in Sublimity.  When deputies arrived, they encountered an intoxicated male who had allegedly struck the victim in the head with a liquor bottle.  Deputies were able to help get the victim to safety before the suspect barricaded himself in the residence.

Over the next few hours, deputies attempted to get the suspect to surrender peacefully.  After those efforts were unsuccessful, the Sheriff’s Office SWAT Team was called to the scene at close to 2:00 am.  Negotiators from the Tactical Negotiations Team made numerous attempts to engage with the male and to convince him to surrender.  SWAT Tactical Team members made entry into the residence and were able to take the suspect into custody on multiple charges.

The suspect has been identified as Michael Ducommun, a 54-year-old man from Sublimity.  He has been taken to an area hospital for an evaluation and will be lodged at Marion County Jail later today.  He will be charged with Assault III, Assault IV, Resisting Arrest, and Unlawful Use of a Weapon.

The victim, a 49-year old Sublimity woman, was treated and released at an area hospital.

The SWAT Team is comprised of deputies from all four divisions of the Sheriff’s Office; Enforcement, Institutions, Community Corrections, and Operations.  They are joined on this multi-agency team by officers from the Woodburn Police Department.

Parole and Probation Officer Week - 07/25/19

On July 17th, the Marion County Board of Commissioners declared July 21 – 27, 2019 as Parole and Probation Officer Week. Nationally, there are over 8 million adults on some form of community supervision. In the State of Oregon, there are over 29,000 people on supervision, about 3,100 of those people reside within Marion County and are supervised by the Community Corrections Division of the Sheriff’s Office.

Our community corrections professionals strive for efficiency by focusing precious public resources towards our highest risk population, holding clients accountable, and targeting specific risks linked to criminal behavior. Undersheriff Jeff Wood stated, “Within any given day, any of our staff may help a client find a job, sanction an absconder, work towards family unification, make a referral to housing, or connect clients to treatment to overcome addiction. Our employees have a difficult and complicated job and the citizens of Marion County can and should be proud of the service their community corrections professionals provide.”

The Community Corrections Division focuses on utilizing cost-effective and evidence-based supervision practices to provide support services, lower recidivism rates, collaboratively work within the community, and to enhance public safety. The Sheriff’s Office has implemented Effective Practices in Community Supervision (EPICS) and Core Correctional Practices (CCP) as our “base” model of supervision and interaction, whether in the field or at the Transition Center. Additionally, the Senate Bill 416 prison diversion program implemented by our Community Corrections Division is being modeled and replicated state wide. Just one of the many programs used at the Sheriff’s Office, the Short-Term Transitional Leave program, has led to a savings of over 60,000 prison bed days since 2014. All of these efforts combined have led to a recidivism rate which has been on a downward trend since 2006.

Sheriff Joe Kast expressed his appreciation for the essential role parole and probation officers play in our community, “Our employees are highly trained in best practices, are focused on teaching our offenders to be better neighbors and are genuinely committed to making a difference in our community, all the while keeping our community safe. This week is time to recognize and honor the important work of community corrections professionals.”

Stolen Vehicle Suspect Flees from Deputies, Crashes In Courtyard of Apartment Complex (Photo) - 07/23/19

This evening at approximately 7:27 pm, a Marion County Sheriff’s Deputy attempted to stop a stolen 1997 Honda Accord in the area of Hyacinth St NE and 25th Ave NE in Salem.  The driver of the vehicle initially pulled over for the deputy.  As additional law enforcement officers arrived on scene, the driver of the Honda abruptly sped off into the North Park Apartments.

As the driver attempted to flee, deputies chose not to initiate a vehicle pursuit through the apartment complex due to the extreme risk to the residents.  While trying to get away, the suspect drove over the lawn and crashed through a fence in the apartment complex, nearly striking two law enforcement officers.  The vehicle came to rest after the suspect struck a tree in the courtyard of the apartment complex.  Law enforcement at the scene were able to take the suspect into custody and there were no reported injuries to anyone involved.

The suspect has been identified as Kevin Grieve, 21, of Springfield.  He will be lodged at the Marion County Jail on multiple charges including; Attempted Assault II, Criminal Mischief I, Reckless Driving, Reckless Endangering, Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle, and Attempt to Elude.

The Marion County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Salem Police Department and Salem Fire Department during this incident.
