Name: Randy Hancock
Title: Lead Worker/Deschutes County District Inspector
Organization: Oregon Liquor Control Commission
Stakeholder Group: Enforcement
I am an Oregon native, growing up in the Portland area. After travelling around the states while pursuing my education, I landed back in Oregon. I graduated from Portland State University with a BS in Psychology, adding emphasis in the Criminal Justice program. I first moved to Central Oregon in 1997 where I started my career in public service. After a brief return to the Portland area in 2002, my wife of 21 years and I returned to Bend in 2009 to raise our family.
I am an Inspector with the OLCC where I have worked over the last 5 years; including 2 years in a Lead Worker capacity and 2 years as an instructor. My duties include enforcement of Oregon Liquor Laws and Administrative Rules, which involve educating licensees (and our community) about the issues, problems, and concerns related to underage/binge drinking.
My previous work includes about 7 years as a Child Support Case Worker/Agent for DOJ and the Multnomah County DA’s Office, about 3 years as a Charities Investigator for DOJ, 2 years as a licensed Private Investigator, and 2 ½ years as a Reserve Police Officer for the City of Bend.
In my spare time I enjoy snow skiing with my wife and our two kids, as well as golf and fly fishing with friends when time and weather permit. I am a bit of a movie/music buff and occasionally try my hand at amateur carpentry; focusing on decks and sheds. I am currently working on my Master’s Justice Studies with concentration in Public Administration which I hope to have completed in 2019.
