It’s a sad day today for Jefferson County Sheriff Jim Adkins. One of his own, records clerk, Jennifer Goelze, was indicted this afternoon by the Jefferson County Grand Jury for allegedly stealing thousands of dollars from the Jefferson County Law Enforcement Association.
Sheriff Adkins had this to say, “On September 12, 2019, I was made aware of the theft of the Jefferson County Law Enforcement Association money and immediately placed Jennifer Goelze on paid administrative leave and requested the assistance of the Oregon State Police.”
Adkins added, “She was the Treasurer of the Association, I trusted her, all of the employees at the Sheriff Office trusted her…”
After the Oregon State Police completed their investigation, Ms. Goelze resigned on September 23, 2019.
