Building personal relationships with the citizens they serve

In Lake Oswego we are fortunate to have a police department devoted to ensuring the community’s safety on a daily basis.  In an effort to change the conversation about law enforcement in today’s world, the Police Department is continuing their campaign #youandblue.  The campaign debuted last year and after over-whelming success, it continues this holiday season.  It’s designed to celebrate the partnership between citizens and law enforcement.  The community is invited to take to social media to share photos with the Police Department and include the hashtag #youandblue.  Citizens are encouraged to make a connection with our officers - introduce yourself, have a conversation and get to know our Police team.  You might be surprised to learn that there are expert fisherman, woodworkers, chefs, runners, and even former college football players in the department. 

The kick off for #youandblue will take place at the annual Lake Oswego Christmas Tree Lighting Festival on November 24.  If you miss the kick off, you have more opportunities to join the celebration - the campaign continues through December 31.  Police Officers will be present at numerous holiday events and activities, including Tinseltown Trolley on December 2 and 3, the Jingle & Swing Holiday Concert on December 16, and more. 

The Police Department hopes #youandblue will celebrate the unity between law enforcement and community members and continue to enhance the quality of life for all Lake Oswegans.
