Our prayers go out to the families of the five Police Officers murdered and the seven others wounded last week in Dallas. The Officers were on the street that night to protect the very core of American rights and values and their lives were ended or changed by a senseless act of cowardice.
Over the last week, the Lake Oswego Police Department received an outpouring of support from our own community - from letters and emails, to phone calls, to sharing of food, to handshakes and smiles you have honored us and given us hope as we continue our work in our community. We are so very thankful for your support and encouragement as we work to protect the citizens of Lake Oswego.
I am proud of every member of the Lake Oswego Police Department and the work they do for you every day - their willingness to risk their lives to keep you safe is a measure of their character that we can never take for granted.
With gratitude for our cops and for our community,
Don Johnson, Police Chief
