The Garfield County Sheriff Department in Pomeroy graciously allowed us to store our bicycles overnight (in with the locked up stolen bicycles). Pomeroy is both the county seat and only city in Garfield County. The county population of 2266 makes it the least populous county in Washington. Spending time with the Officers was an illuminating insight into the concerns, efforts, and workings of law enforcement. There are 9 full-time officers in the County Sheriff’s Department.
