Community Policing



Run, Hide, Fight
Help the Police Help You

Being prepared, having a plan, becoming familiar with your surroundings and reporting suspicious or unusual situations should be a part of everyone’s daily landscape. Recent events in our nation and beyond prompt reminders that safety is a shared responsibility.  The national average response time for law enforcement in an emergency situation is eight minutes. How ready would you be if confronted with a situation which could compromise your or your family’s safety? 

The department recommends you become familiar with the Run, Hide, Fight safety presentation. It is unlikely you will ever need to carry-out the suggested actions. However, simply being aware of the impactful steps could save a life. Create an age-appropriate discussion afterward with family members as well. 

What may be the most important part of violence prevention is the steps taken beforehand. If you see something-say something! Notify law enforcement quickly. Resilient communities begin with prepared individuals. Help the police help you. Be an informed citizen.

Graffiti

Reporting Graffiti Vandalism
To report graffiti vandalism,
please contact Police Dispatch at 503-629-0111.

Graffiti Ordinance In Effect
The purpose of this ordinance is to encourage prompt removal of graffiti after the incident is reported to the Tigard Police Department. It also discourages graffiti from remaining in place for extended periods of time, which can also encourage additional graffiti. 


Please know that it is not our intent to victimize you twice as a result of your victimization. It is however, essential to the welfare of our entire community to have graffiti removed as promptly as possible. To this end, the City will be pleased to work with you and try to make it as easy as possible.

It is important for you to know that failure to remove the graffiti after the 14 days notice can result in a civil infraction. The fine for this violation can be imposed up to a $100 fine per day, until the graffiti is removed. Naturally, we would not welcome this action of enforcement, and sincerely anticipate that residents affected will take the proper steps to eradicate the graffiti. 

We have contacted local paint stores to help make this cleanup effort as easy as possible. The following businesses have agreed to offer discounts on paint purchased to diminish the effects of graffiti vandalism:

Miller Paint 10115 SW Nimbus Ave, Tigard 503-968-9525
Home Depot 14800 SW Sequoia Pkwy, Tigard 503-639-3500
Lowe's 12615 SW 72nd Ave, Tigard 503-624-2644

In the event you seek their generous offer of discounted paint, please be prepared to provide the store with the Tigard Police case number associated with your incident.

Need to Report Vandalism? If you need to report graffiti vandalism to your property, please contact the non-emergency police dispatch at 503-629-0111.

What is Mediation?
Mediation is a negotiation process where a neutral third party, a mediator, helps parties work together to resolve conflict. The mediator doesn't solve problems, but does help parties work together toward a mutually beneficial resolution. The parties have complete control throughout the process, jointly seeking the best possible resolution, while preserving important relationships. Because parties take responsibility for their own solutions, they are more likely to keep their agreements.

The Dispute Resolution Center does not handle disputes in which there is a pattern of violence or physical abuse between parties, when a party is impaired by drugs or alcohol, in cases where a person cannot adequately represent him or herself, where one party refuses to willingly participate, or where a party is unwilling to negotiate in good faith.

Self Defense
Class instruction and demonstrations will allow you to decrease your vulnerability and give you a new sense of confidence and personal power. Class activities and discussions are designed to help women identify their risks, evaluate their strengths, and explore their options for dealing with the threat of sexual violence.

Physical self-defense is most effective when vulnerable areas of the body are targeted. Some of the skills taught will include multiple strikes to vulnerable areas, as well as escapes from choke holds, body grabs, wrist grasps, and defense techniques from the ground.

 Community Tip Line
Tip Phone
Did you know that citizens in the community are considered "the eyes and ears" for the police? Police officers cannot be everywhere at any given time. As a result, police rely on citizens to advise them of suspicious situations or activity they observe. The police can also benefit from community input during an investigation. There are times when witnesses may be able to provide valuable information in conjunction with a criminal investigation. For that purpose, a tip line has been created at the Tigard Police Department. At your request, the source for your information can remain anonymous.

Citizens can either phone 503-718-COPS or email tips@tigard-or.gov with information. For further information, please contact Tigard's Public Information Officer Jim Wolf at 503-718-2561 during normal business hours.

The "tip line" resource is not suited for everything. Please use the non-emergency telephone number for police dispatch to report crimes "not occurring now" such as graffiti, damage to public property, stolen property, etc. That number to call is 503-629-0111.

For emergencies and crimes "occurring now" always call 9-1-1.
