It is a little over 25 minutes long and is in both color and in black and white. It presents information from the 1930’s through the 1980’s about the history of some parts of MCSO operations. Segments include Poor Farm operations, the construction of Rocky Butte Jail in 1939-1944, Larch Mountain Road construction, the creation of the anti-protest Emergency Squad in 1963, the River Patrol, a 1966 plane crash search and rescue, and the motorcycle division and trick team.

Documentary films

The provenance of this movie is unclear. It was transferred to the County Archives by the Sheriff’s Office but may have been produced by the Oregon Historical Society for Multnomah County. It is in color, silent, and lasts a little over eleven minutes. It is not dated but probably was made in the late 1940’s. The movie primarily documents the activities related to the Multnomah County Hospital. The first minute and a half appears to have scenes from the Poor Farm/Edgefield. The remainder shows the exterior of the hospital and grounds, medical records, reception, patients in bed, kitchen and food preparation and delivery, charting, patient tests and procedures, surgery, equipment sterilization, and the baby ward.

The County Sheriff's records include administrative records maintained by the County Sheriff or their administrative staff.
