LAKE OSWEGO - On Monday, August 21, 2023, at about 6:31 p.m., a pedestrian was crossing the street on 2nd Street at B Avenue when she was struck by a vehicle. The pedestrian, a 73-year-old Lake Oswego woman, suffered life-threatening injuries and was transported to Oregon Health & Science University Hospital (OHSU) where her condition was last described as critical but stable.
We are excited to share that one of our newer officers, Eryn Berry, graduated from the basic police academy on Friday, August 11, 2023. Graduation was the culmination of 16 weeks of training at the Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST) basic police academy in Salem, Oregon, where she got her start learning the basics of policing. Officer Berry will now continue her field training where she will build upon the concepts and skills learned at the academy.
Are you interested in becoming a police officer? Are you already a police officer but are looking for a different opportunity? We'd love to hear from you. We are currently looking for lateral or entry-level police officer applicants to fill out our ranks. There are lots of opportunities for specialty assignments where you can do things that pique your interest, like detectives, motorcycle officers, school resource officers, K-9, adult resource officers, training, and more!
Come be a part of our full-service agency and help make a difference in our community!
