Klamath County, Oregon – Sheriff Chris Kaber took to social media to announce his decision not to run for a new term as the Sheriff of Klamath County. This decision marks the end of a significant chapter in local law enforcement history, as Kaber has been a stalwart figure in the community, serving in law enforcement for nearly four decades.
In his statement, Kaber expressed his intentions clearly, stating, “I intend to complete the term you elected me to which ends in January 2025. I do not plan to file for re-election. I will have served my state and county in law enforcement for 37 years when my term ends and am looking forward to the next role God has for me.”
Kaber revealed that his son, Sergeant Ryan Kaber, has thrown his hat into the ring for the Sheriff position. Chris Kaber offered his full support and endorsement to Ryan, stating, “Another Kaber has entered the Sheriff race. I can highly endorse and recommend Sergeant Ryan Kaber to you for the next Klamath County Sheriff. He’s grown up in law enforcement, watching and learning, and following me into the field. He took time and pains to educate himself and master the job. I believe Ryan will be a better Sheriff for Klamath County than I have been or could be in the future, he will proudly represent Klamath and the employees of the office better than any other candidate in the running.”
