Police Department Divisions

The Lake Oswego Police Department (LOPD) is a full-service police force whose mission is to cultivate an exceptional quality of life for everyone in our community.

The Police Department carries out its mission through six divisions with activities that range from criminal investigations and traffic law enforcement to animal control and education programs. The Department also fields two K-9 teams, provides two school resource officers, and operates a 911 emergency dispatch center.

The Police Department’s Communications Division (LOCOM) provides 24-hour-a-day emergency and non-emergency call answering and dispatching of services for police, fire, and medical emergencies in Lake Oswego, West Linn, and Milwaukie.
