Hillsboro Police Conducting Follow Up Investigation Into Dog Case - 03/03/14
This release updates the media coverage and news presented from an animal case involving A Washington County Animal Control Officer and a dog at large on NW Garibaldi St.
It is important at this stage of the investigation to point out that the person under investigation is an employee of Washington County Animal Control, not Hillsboro Police Department and any inquiries regarding his employment status and/or history, training, experience, or animal control policies and procedures should be directed to Washington County.
The Hillsboro Police Department has assigned a Detective to conduct a thorough investigation to determine whether a crime was committed and we encourage people who actually witnessed the incident to contact Detective Cheryl Banks at 503 681 6175.
This case has generated a lot of media attention and we ask that only people with direct knowledge of the incident contact us, as the numerous other phone calls we have received have served only to delay the investigation.
As the investigation progresses HPD will send updates.
