Thank you, Tigard PD, for taking time out of your day to wish this gentleman a very happy 100th birthday!Wishing this special man a VERY Happy 100th Birthday! 🥳🎉

Paul Herberholz has lived in Tigard for many decades and has no shortage of stories to tell! We were invited to join with his family and friends on Saturday for a special birthday parade to celebrate him!

He's a WWII veteran who was awarded the Purple Heart and was sent to Hiroshima three weeks after the atomic bomb was dropped. Even at the young age of 100, he's still able to live independently and take care of himself.

We could feel the love and support for Paul this weekend! Check out this Tigard-Tualatin Times article to read more about him: https://pamplinmedia.com/ttt/89-news/….

What a sweet gesture from these two children! Salem PD, you are appreciated!Yesterday, June 23, officers responded to the report of an injured deer at Wallace RD and Bassett DR NW. Upon arriving, they found the deer at the northwest corner of the busy intersection trying to get across but couldn't due to passing cars.

The officers stopped all traffic allowing the deer to get across the street. It headed toward the park without issue.

When it was all done, the officers were approached by two children and given an envelope containing a Dutch Bros coffee card. The mom explained to the officers that the kids had saved their own money to buy the card.

However, more important was the handwritten note which is pictured below and the personal thanks each child gave the officers.

Because of the heavy call load in the city, the officers had to hurry along even though they wished they could have stayed longer to chat. So, the officers asked to share the story and image so the boys could remember just how much their kindness is appreciated. This family provided a bright spot for these officers.

The Oregon Association Chiefs of Police was founded in 1953 with the intended purpose of enhancing the professionalism of Law Enforcement in Oregon. The founding Chiefs envisioned creating an association that would promote training and information sharing to facilitate the professional growth of Chiefs of Police, command staff, supervisors, line officers and support personnel. The Oregon Association Chiefs of Police rapidly became a leader both on the state and national level in the effort to enhance the profession.
