West Linn Police Department News

In the coming weeks, you will see the West Linn Police Department on mountain bikes patrolling the parks for off-leash dogs. There has been a growing demand from the citizens for increased enforcement of the City’s leash law and we are committed to providing that service. West Linn Municipal Code 5.250: Running at large definition: Off or outside the premises belonging to the person having the control, custody or possession of the dog while the dog is not under the complete control of such person by means of an adequate leash, or is within a vehicle of such person. Off Leash areas: The only area in the City of West Linn where it is legal for a dog to be off leash is the “Off Leash” field near the main parking lot of Mary S. Young Park. The off leash area is clearly marked with signs and is the only place in the park where dogs may be allowed off leash. All dogs must be leashed on all beach areas, trails and sport fields. Please go to the City of West Linn website link for specific information regarding West Linn Municipal Code 5.250. https://westlinnoregon.gov/police/dogs-large-leash-law

West Linn Police Sgt. Jake Howell was awarded the Lifesaving Award on May 14 at the City Council meeting for his actions following a shooting outside the Clackamas Town Center on March 29. Howell and his TRIMET detail partner, Portland Police Bureau Officer Samson Ajir, were the first to arrive on the scene and immediately began treating the victim, using their training in combat casualty care. The officers packed the wounds, and applied other life saving techniques for about 15 minutes until they were relieved by medical personnel. “Based on Howell’s quick and assertive actions the victim survived and was transported to a local hospital,” said Interim Police Chief Neil Hennelly prior to presenting Howell with the award.

Sadly, it’s that time of year again when scammers attempt to trick honest people by posing as IRS employees. Please remember that the IRS has stated that they will not contact you by telephone or email and threaten you with arrest unless you immediately get a prepaid gift card or transfer them money. Checkout the links to the IRS and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) that deal with these and other scams. And check in with friends and family members that you believe may be susceptible to these con artists. https://www.irs.gov/privacy-disclosure/report-phishing https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/features/scam-alerts

Today we celebrated six years of service with the West Linn Police Department from Elizabeth Carson-Hall as an Administrative Assistant. We also recognized seven years of service from Jani Grant (not pictured because she's shy) as a Record Specialist. Interim Chief Hennelly presented both ladies with certificates and WLPD Challenge Coins. We could truly not function as a department without the hard work and dedication these two provide day in and day out. Thank you both!

Please continue to call in suspicious vehicles/persons in Mary S Young Park. In recent months, there has been an increase in thefts from vehicles at this location. On 04/13/18, a park volunteer called in a suspicious vehicle that appeared to be “casing” both parking areas at Mary S Young. When police arrived, the vehicle departed. A West Linn PD Officer followed and stopped the vehicle. The male driver ran from the stop location but was quickly apprehended. The driver was arrested on a Parole Board warrant as well as Attempt to Elude and Driving While Suspended (Misdemeanor). The female passenger was on felony probation for Possession of Methamphetamine. Neither live in the area and they did not have an explanation why they were visiting the park.
