Free Child Safety Seat Clinic On April 21st, 2018 Beaverton Police Department, along with Safe Kids Coalition of Washington County and Kuni Auto Center, will be offering a free child safety seat clinic. The clinic will run from 9:00 AM to 11:30 AM at the Kuni Auto Center located at 3725 SW Cedar Hills Blvd. Beaverton, OR 97005. Motor-vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death nationwide for children ages 1-12. In 2015, 1,353 children under age 9 were injured in Oregon traffic crashes; six children died. It's estimated that car seats may increase crash survival by 71% for infants under 1 year old, and by up to 59% for toddlers ages 1-4. Booster seats may reduce the chance of nonfatal injury among 4- to 8-year-olds by 45% compared to safety belts used alone. For more information about the proper fit of a child safety seat please visit https://www.nhtsa.gov/equipment/car-seats-and-booster-seats. No appointment is necessary so please just drop in. Arriving early is recommended as we sometimes have more vehicles than we can accommodate during the event timeframe. Each car seat check will take approximately 30 minutes.

National public safety telecommunicators week. This week we would like everyone to thank all the dispatchers at Washington County Dispatch. WC dispatch fields all 911 and non-emergency calls made within our county. The men and women behind the phones take care of us all: whether it be providing CPR instructions to a distraught family member, watching the backs of our law enforcement officers and fire fighters or relaying critical patient information to a paramedic crew. Dispatchers are sometimes the forgotten first responders because we do not see them. Well, this week, we do see dispatch for the heroes they are. Thank you for being you from the bottom of our hearts.

Average BAC in March Alcohol DUII’s was .15% The Beaverton Police Department is participating in a yearlong National Traffic Safety Campaign again in 2018. The focus of this campaign is taking impaired drivers off our streets, keeping Beaverton a safe city to travel and live. Officers were out on targeted patrols for impaired drivers during the month of March and made 33 DUII arrests. During the month of April, officers will continue their efforts to take impaired drivers off the streets of our no refusal city. This High Visibility Enforcement (HVE) detail was paid for by grant funds. Out of the 33 arrests, 7 people refused to take a breath test and a warrant for a blood draw was granted. Out of the people who were arrested for an alcohol related DUII and provided a breath sample, the average blood alcohol content in their blood was .15%. 15 Of the 33 DUII drivers in March crashed their car prior to being arrested. Drunk driving, impaired driving or buzzed driving all have the potential to claim lives and often will result in jail time. The men and women of the Beaverton Police Department ask you to please use a designated driver or find another sober ride home.

Fraud Alert Please be on the lookout for fraudulent checks showing up in your mailbox. One of our employees received a fraudulent check addressed to her at the police department. How to spot a fraudulent check: 1. Examine the check. Most legitimate business checks will have one edge that is rough or perforated. 2. Look for a bank logo on the check. If there is no bank logo the check is likely fake. 3. Check for irregularities. Check for spelling or typing errors within any of the printed areas. If you spot a misspelling the check is likely fraudulent. 4. Checks that accompany letters which request the recipient to send money back in exchange for cashing the check are always fraudulent. Thing to do with a questionable check: 1. Check with your local bank to see if the check if fraudulent. 2. Contact the company who supposedly wrote the check. Legitimate businesses become victims of fraud and have their information printed on fraudulent checks. 3. Don’t cash suspicious checks without talking to your bank first. 4. Contact your local law enforcement agency.
