Who says police don't have a sense of humor? While we don't endorse products, we do appreciate a recent donation by the Ring company. They graciously donated several cameras which we have been able to give out in cases of domestic violence and repeated porch thefts.

Cameras can be a crime deterrent and have value as evidence to solve crimes. Good lighting, locked doors and windows, a good neighborhood network, and not leaving packages on the porch are also good practices to help deter crime.

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.
