Klickitat County Sheriff Songer names Undersheriff

Effective November 16, 2022, I promoted Chief Jail Deputy Carmen Knopes to the management position of Undersheriff, which makes her second in Command of the Sheriff’s Office.  Chief Jail Deputy Carmen Knopes took the OATH OF OFFICE and was sworn in as Undersheriff by me on November 17, 2022 at the Klickitat County Sheriff’s Office.

It should also be noted Chief Civil Clerk Karen Elings management title has been changed to the title of Chief Civil Deputy.  Chief Civil Deputy is fourth in command in the Sheriff’s Office chain of command.
