F.A.Q.

 How do I report a crime or get police services?
    If you have an emergency dial 911. For non-emergency police services call 503-629-0111 any time. For police records information or other Tigard police business call 503-639-6168 everyday from 8 AM to 11 PM.

 How do I get a restraining order?
    You need to contact Washington County Circuit Court. They are located at 145 NE Second Avenue in Hillsboro, Oregon. For additional information you may contact them by telephone at 503-846-8767.

 I see graffiti. What should I do?
    The Tigard police department is aware of the problems graffiti is causing in our community and we work diligently, on a daily basis, to get it cleaned up as quickly as we can. At one time we considered implementing a "reporting form" on this web site for reporting graffiti and other crimes but decided against it as these types of incidents need to be tracked through normal reporting channels, such as our dispatch center. To report graffiti, please call the non-emergency dispatch number at 503-629-0111. If you observe it being done - then call 911. Read more about Tigard's Graffiti Ordinance.

 How do I get a Concealed Handgun Permit?
    You will need to contact the Washington County Sheriff's Office to obtain a permit. For additional information please call 503-846-2761.

 How do I obtain a Business License?
    All businesses doing services in Tigard are required to pay a business license fee to the City. Information and fee schedules can be obtained at Tigard City Hall located at 13125 SW Hall Blvd. For information regarding Business Licenses, call 503-718-2487 or visit the Business License page.

    Yes. Licenses may be obtained through Washington County Dog Control. This agency enforces all animal ordinances within the City of Tigard. You may telephone their office at 503-846-7041 to learn about services they provide.

 How can I find out if there is a Neighborhood Watch Program in my area?

    Crash Notification Requirement for Injury/Damage
      Effective Date: January 1, 2010

    SB 314 requires any driver involved in an accident, resulting in the death or injury of a person or property damage in excess of $1500, to give notice of the accident immediately to a police officer or law enforcement agency by the quickest means available. In addition, SB 314:

    • Requires each driver involved in an accident to report if damage requires the towing of any of the involved vehicles from the scene.
    • Allows the Department of Transportation to increase the cost of damage that requires notification every five years based on any increase in the Portland- Salem Consumer Price Index.
    • Exempts law enforcement officials performing a lawful intervention technique (PIT maneuver) or accidents occurring with a person committing a criminal offense. The measure also exempts operators of snowmobiles, Class I all-terrain vehicles or Class III all-terrain vehicles.
    SB 314 stipulates that a driver or occupant (when the driver is unable to report) that fails to report an accident to a police officer or law enforcement agency based on the provisions of the law commits a Class A traffic violation.
