Tigard Police Department News

We hope everyone had an enjoyable and safe weekend. Amidst St. Patrick's Day celebrations, Tigard Police were very active in the effort to ensure safety within the community. A small part of the recent activity occurred early Saturday morning when a Tigard officer arrested a motorist who failed to take the responsible steps to NOT drive after consuming intoxicants. Most likely the suspect arrested may now be thinking Irish I would have taken a taxi! Remember, drive sober or get pulled over. Moreover, thanks to observant citizens who reported suspected drunk drivers on the roads throughout the weekend. In other activity, Tigard Police arrested a man who ran from a single-vehicle crash near Greenburg Rd. and Center St. which damaged public property. A K-9 track assisted officers in locating the suspect who was later taken to the Washington County Jail. He was charged with numerous offenses including Reckless Driving and Fail to Perform Duties of a Driver. Rounding out the weekend, a Tigard Officer arrested an Oregon City man who stole merchandise from a Washington Square retailer a bit earlier in the week. During the ordeal, the suspect, and an accomplice, assaulted an employee upon being confronted outside of the store. A foot chase ensued which included loss prevention and mall security. Both suspects got away. A Tigard officer investigating the incident recovered some of the suspect’s property left behind, including a backpack, which contained a stolen handgun. The same officer was later able to identify one of the fleeing suspects and ultimately arrange for the suspect to turn himself-in. The twenty year-old suspect was later lodged in the Washington County Jail and charged with Theft II, Robbery III and Unlawful Possession of a Firearm in addition to the two outstanding warrants. Remember, Tigard Police are working for you 24/7. We are the guardians of the community and never take your trust for granted. Thank you for your continued support.

Beginning today and continuing through Saturday (3/17), Tigard Police will have extra officers on the road looking for suspected DUII. This is part of a NHTSA sponsored program providing grants to local law enforcement to beef-up patrol in the overall effort to help keep our roads safe-especially at times when alcohol may be more likely present such as holidays or events such as St. Patrick's Day. Let's all do our role in helping to keep celebrations happy for all the right reasons. Please do not drink and drive.

We recently shared a statement prepared by the Tigard-Tualatin School District, along with the Tigard, Tualatin and King City Police Departments. The message reflects the committment of those involved regarding the effort to provide a safe school environment for all children. You can read more here: http://www.tigard-or.gov/police/index.php

We are hanging out at Tualatin High for the Chris Herron Project presentation and substance abuse prevention resource fair this evening. Thanks Tigard Turns the Tide for organizing this event

Today, Tigard Police Chief, Kathy McAlpine, had the opportunity to personally thank a good Samaritan who came to the aid of a Tigard officer earlier in the week. Kent Willey was invited to Tigard City Hall and met with numerous Tigard Police officers and staff and was met with a standing ovation. Mr. Willey received a Tigard Police commemorative coin and a certificate which contained a quote from Sir Robert Peel...the police are the public, and the public are the police."

The challenges of police work are ever present. What may begin as a routine call for an officer can quickly escalate into a potentially dangerous situation without notice. Often police enter into a situation with little to no knowledge of the person(s) involved. The unknown can quickly turn into an undesirable confrontation, and at times, result in significant consequences. Closer to home, what started out as a quite ordinary Monday afternoon at the Tigard Public Library, quickly turned into a fast-paced effort drawing-in several police officers and a good Samaritan citizen to the rapidly evolving situation. A Tigard officer was called to the location on a report of a man causing concern to library staff. Upon arrival, the officer attempted to contact the suspect who was pointed out by a library employee. The officer asked the suspect if they might talk outside the library. Once they exited, the suspect began to engage the officer in a physical altercation, which quickly brought both men to the ground, all this occurring while the officer attempted to use his radio to call for additional officers. A man about to enter the library, observed the officer struggling to subdue the suspect. The citizen quickly joined-in to assist the officer and take control of the suspect. During the rapidly evolving struggle, both the officer and good Samaritan sustained minor injuries. Once the additional officers arrived, the suspect was taken into custody and later lodged in the Washington County Jail on multiple charges including assault, resisting arrest and more. We would like to expressly thank the citizen who selflessly rushed-in to help our officer. This action exuded courage and genuine concern. Tigard Police officers are well-trained professionals who are often placed into unsafe or threatening situations, and while doing so, place priority to ensure the safety of everyone else around. We all thank you for your continued support. Sincerely, the women and men of the Tigard Police Department.

Working to maintain safety and peace often goes round the clock. Tigard Police had a very busy Saturday evening and overnight shift. Tigard officers located and arrested 3 motorists for DUII-one of which was a sixteen year-old who had nearly twice the blood alcohol level limit. Attempts to keep Tigard roads safe for everyone is just one thing of many that your Tigard Police Department strives to do. Add to the evening a 9-1-1 call reporting a strong arm robbery. Tigard officers, along with a K-9 track, conducted a search for evidence and to locate the suspect, who remains outstanding. The graveyard shift rounded out with an officer who sustained minor injuries while attempting to subdue a threatening and intoxicated person who left a bar and was interfering with traffic along Pacific Highway. All this and more while most Tigard residents rested comfortably knowing their police department was there if needed. We thank you for your trust and confidence knowing we will always be ready to provide the necessary professional, compassionate and equitable assistance to everyone. It's in our DNA.
