Molalla Police Department News

This week is National Telecommunications Week. We want to thank our dispatchers at Clackamas 911 - CCOM, along with dispatchers throughout the nation. We don't always get to see them, but they are the calm voice on the other side of the radio when we need them most. THANK YOU!

The Molalla High School Leadership team stopped in today to thank all the officers for the job they do. Sgt. Chris Long was presented with a sign and treat bags with inspirational thoughts on them. It means so much to the officers to receive such positive feedback, especially from young people. The sign and goodies were put in our break room. THANKS AGAIN!!! We love our community.

National Night Out 2018 This year, NNO will be held on Tuesday, August 7th from 5pm – 7:30pm located at Sally Fox Park (near library). The Molalla Police Department has organized this city-wide event starting in 2005. It’s with great excitement we are going to once again organize this amazing event and be back at Fox Park. As in years past, the theme of NNO for Molalla is Child Safety and Welfare. All participants are to have displays/demonstrations/handouts relating to that topic. We do not allow vendors or individuals to sell products or their services while at the event. However, participants may have business cards or handouts with contact information on it to promote their services/business at a later time. For example; if you were a clown, donating your time to be at NNO, you could pass out your card to interested parties, but your main purpose in being there is to entertain the children. Some of the current participants are; Molalla Fire Department, Molalla Communications (w/free bike helmets), CCSO Sheriff’s Posse, Clackamas County Animal Control, OR Dept. of Forestry (w/Smokey the bear), National Guard, school busses, Molalla Public Works (w/equipment), and many more! We are asking for help filling booths/displays meeting the previously described conditions. Everyone who participates does so on a voluntary basis, there is no compensation. Our crowds in the past have been as large as 700-800 people. Here is a specific list of who or what we are in need of: • Clown/balloon animals/face painter to provide free services to the general crowd. * Food vendors willing to donate a portion of the proceeds to our local Police Youth Fund. • Other groups that may want to help promote Child Safety and Welfare. Anyone wanting to have a table or participate needs to contact Ronda Lee with the Molalla Police Department to discuss the details. Prior approval is required.
