4 juvenile burglars arrested after foot chase from Boones Ferry Primary - 11/23/14
On 11-22-14 at about 6:30 pm deputies with the Wilsonville Police Department responded to an alarm at Boones Ferry Primary School located at 11495 SW Wilsonville Road. Information was received from the alarm company (which monitors sounds within the building)that voices could be heard inside as well as the activation of the alarm system.

Arriving deputies located four juvenile suspects exiting the school. The juveniles ran, but all four were apprehended after a foot chase.

The subsequent investigation revealed that one of the suspects had climbed onto the roof of the school and made entry into the school and then let the remaining suspects into the school. The suspects stole property from the school and were found in possession of that property when they were apprehended.

The juveniles, three of whom are 14 years of age and one 13 years of age, all live in the area. They were taken to the Clackamas County Juvenile Reception Center and turned over to the custody of the Clackamas County Juvenile Department, each charged with Burglary in the Second Degree.

Facilities personnel from the West Linn Wilsonville School District responded and made the building secure.

The Wilsonville Police Department is a contract with the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office.

CORRECTED LINK: Sheriff's Office deputies participate in 'No Shave November,' raise money to fight cancer (Photo) - 11/19/14
[UPDATE: Corrected link for "No Shave November" ( http://www.no-shave.org/ ) below.]

November is Men's Health Awareness Month ( http://us.movember.com/ ). People across the country are recognizing this important effort is by growing out their facial hair, as part of the "No Shave November" ( http://www.no-shave.org/ ) campaign.

At the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office, this hasn't been an option -- because CCSO grooming standards do not allow deputies to wear beards...

... until now.

STRICTLY for the month of November, and as part of a coordinated effort to raise awareness about men's health issues -- including the kinds of cancer that only affect men -- Sheriff Craig Roberts decided to relax CCSO's grooming standards in order to allow uniformed members of the Sheriff's Office to participate.

"Of course, the public still expects us to maintain our professional appearance," said Sheriff Roberts in an Oct. 29 email to all Sheriff's Office personnel, "so if you choose to participate, make sure to keep your beard trimmed and neat.... Don't look to ZZ Top or 'Duck Dynasty' for inspiration."

The goal of "No-Shave November" is to raise cancer awareness by growing facial hair. During November, participants are encouraged to donate money they'd usually spend on shaving to educate people about cancer prevention, save lives, and aid those fighting the battle.

"Use your new look of facial hair to help start a conversation about cancer -- and mention that early detection is key," wrote Undersheriff Matt Ellington in a follow-up email.

The Sheriff's Office has a No-Shave November Team at http://www.no-shave.org As of Tuesday, Nov. 18, the team ranked 19th in team fundraising overall, with 103 members and $3,370 raised -- well over its $3,000 goal -- with funds going to the American Cancer Society. Participants are also encouraged to get a cancer screening during the month of November.

Here is the Sheriff's Office TEMPORARY relaxed grooming policy for the month of November 2014. The policy will return to its previous terms promptly on Dec. 1, 2014.
_________

FACIAL HAIR

Personnel may elect to have a beard or goatee. Beards and goatees will be neatly trimmed and at no time be longer than one inch when extended straight out from the skin surface.
A beard is defined as hair grown covering the face line in a continuous pattern from sideburns, along the cheek line, covering the chin and connecting with a mustache.
A goatee is hair that is grown in a continuous pattern including the chin and mustache but does not extend along the cheek line and does not connect to sideburns.

The dispute escalated to a phyisical altercation in the bar and during that fight Mr. Christopher Wilborn introduced a knife and stabbed the victim.

The victim has injuries which do not threaten his life.

'Deployed Vet Drive' care-package event (New Photos) (Photo) - 11/14/14
Update:

Through generous donations the Sheriff's Office was able to fill over 80 boxes with goods to send to our troops serving overseas. Over half a ton of items were boxed up, labeled and sent out by volunteers. We took video of the event and are happy to share it with members of the media. A link to the location of the video has already been emailed out.


On Friday, Nov. 14, 2014, the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office will host the "Deployed Vet Drive" -- a media event in which volunteers assemble care packages for deployed soldiers.

Among these deployed soldiers: four of our Sheriff's Office deputies serving in the Guard and Reserve.

There will be numerous planned interview opportunities -- including members of the deployed deputies' families, Clackamas County Sheriff Craig Roberts, and Rep. Shemia Fagan (D-Clackamas). (Attendee list subject to change.)

The event is set for Nov. 14 from 8 a.m. to 12 noon at the Public Safety Training Center (12700 SE 82nd Ave., Clackamas, OR 97015). It will also showcase two important new initiatives:

1. The Sheriff's Office's new Military Employee Support Program (MESP); and

2. LC 1068, the "Veterans' Pay Bill" drafted by Rep. Shemia Fagan and endorsed by Sheriff Roberts for the 2015 legislative session. LC 1068 will limit the financial hit that public safety officers have to take when they are called up for active military duty.

CARE-PACKAGE, CHECK DONATIONS WELCOMED FROM PUBLIC:

CARE-PACKAGE DONATIONS:

The Nov. 14 event will feature volunteers assembling care packages to send to deployed members of the Guard and Reserve. From now through Nov. 14, the Sheriff's Office is accepting donations from the public in a donation box at the Public Safety Training Center (12700 SE 82nd Ave., Clackamas, OR 97015).

A list of requested donation items is at the end of this release.

FINANCIAL DONATIONS:

Members of the public can also mail checks supporting this effort to a separate address:

CCPOBF
attn: Deployed Vet Drive
P.O. Box 678
Clackamas, OR 97015

Safeway, Bill Call, and Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Three Rivers Post # 1324 have also partnered with the Sheriff's Office to contribute to the donation effort.

For more information about attending this special event and setting up interviews, contact PIO Sgt. Nate Thompson.

ABOUT THE MILITARY EMPLOYEE SUPPORT PROGRAM:

On July 29, 2014, the Sheriff's Office launched the Military Employee Support Program (MESP). It helps establish a support mechanism for Clackamas County Sheriff's Office employees who serve as citizen soldiers in the nation's Guard and Reserve Units.

This includes financial and logistical support of families of CCSO employees deployed overseas by the Guard and Reserve. This support can include:

- Financial help to make up for income shortfalls during training/deployment
- Errands/chores
- Care packages
- Family care
- Gift certificates
- Child/youth programs
- Assistance in adjusting to civilian law-enforcement environment when returning to duty

A Military Employee Support Program fund was also established through the Clackamas County Peace Officers' Benevolent Foundation (CCPOBF). This fund will create a pool the Foundation can draw from to provide support for deployed CCSO employees and their families. Donations to the fund can be made by mailing a check to:

CCPOBF
attn: Military Employee Support Program
P.O. Box 678
Clackamas, OR 97015

Please make the check payable to CCPOBF and put "Military Employee Support Program " in the memo line. Donors will receive a donation receipt using this method. The CCPOBF is a 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit foundation. To learn more about the CCPOBF, visit www.ccpobf.org

ABOUT LC 1068, THE 'VETERANS' PAY BILL'

The Military Employee Support Program is one way to help. Sheriff Roberts is also working with State Rep. Shemia Fagan to introduce LC 1068 -- a bill for the 2015 Oregon legislative session that allow sheriffs' offices and other public-safety offices to supplement their employees' pay when the employees are on active duty with the Guard and Reserve.

"This adds no additional cost to my payroll," said Roberts. "I've already budgeted for my deputies' full salaries."

As reported by KOIN 6 in October (http://koin.com/2014/10/17/fagan-public-employees-should-get-reservist-pay/ ):
______

In some cases, Fagan said state employees' pay can be cut in half [by deployment], and for that reason, she is introducing legislation that would repeal the current law keeping employers from offering differential pay.

"I'm excited for how this is going to affect firefighters, police officers, sheriffs all over the state to be able to actually continue to support their families at a level that's sustainable while they're out serving our country and the military," said Fagan.

Fagan said she thinks her bill is a win-win for all and has promised to fast track it for early next year [2015] in Salem.

"I expect it to pass unanimously through the Capitol," she said.

Search and Rescue Teams located lost teen hikers on Mt. Hood - 11/09/14
The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office is happy to announce that two lost teenage hikers were located Sunday morning on Mt. Hood after and extensive search that started on Saturday Night.

The Sheriff's Office learned that two teenage hikers began their hike at the entrance to the Top Spur trail head which is located in a very desolate area off E. Lolo Pass Rd, in Rhododendron. The teenagers hiked to the Snow Dragon Ice Caves on the Sandy Glacier when one lost his backpack down an embankment. The teenager hiked down to get the pack and became separated from his friend.

The teenagers were equipped with working cell phones, some food and little water. Hood River Search and Rescue was able to put their airplane up in the air to search the area resulting in locating one of the missing teens. Through search efforts with Mountain Wave 8 Communications, Clackamas County Search and Rescue, AMR Reach and Treat (RAT Team), Portland Mountain Rescue, Pacific Northwest Search and Rescue (PNWSAR), and Hood River Search and Rescue, the teen was located and rescued who only suffered from mild exposure from the elements.

Search and rescue teams learned that there was a second missing teenager after rescuing the first one as they were unaware they had arrived as a pair and became separated. The second teen was located walking the trail, towards their vehicle.

Both teenagers are from the Tigard area and their names are not being released at this time.

The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office would like to remind hikers to always carry sufficient food, water and clothing when going for an extended hike. It's always good to have a fully charged cell phone and if available, carry a second battery as some cell phone apps and GPS functions can rapidly drain a cellphone battery. Always let someone know where you are hiking and what time you plan to be back.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: New Initiatives to Honor and Help Those Who Serve - 11/06/14
As we celebrate Veterans Day this year, it is important to remember that many brave men and women in our nation's armed forces continue serving overseas, including citizen-soldiers in the National Guard and reserves.

While I sit writing this letter in recognition of their continuing sacrifice, four members of my own organization, the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office, are currently deployed -- spending a year away from their families in harsh, dangerous circumstances to keep us safe here at home.

War is no longer a national commitment the way it was in my parents' generation. Today, less than one percent of our population serves in the armed forces, and we've asked a tremendous amount of them since the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

For that reason, I believe that we can never do enough to support those courageous few who volunteer to put their own lives on the line as members of the military.

Here at the Sheriff's Office, we've undertaken a couple of initiatives to support those serving on active duty in the military. First, on November 14 at 8:00 a.m., we're going to be bringing together members of our own organization along with volunteers from the community to box up care packages for our troops at the Public Safety Training Center (PSTC).

We would welcome you to come out and participate in this effort, and between now and then, you can drop off supplies for us to send out to them at the PSTC, located at 12700 SE 82nd Avenue in Clackamas. Type "care packages for soldiers" into an Internet search engine to get some great ideas for things they can really use. I'm also pleased to report that Safeway is stepping up to provide us with contributions from their shelves.

Next, we've established the Military Employee Support Program (MESP) here at the Sheriff's Office, to help the families of members of our organization who are deployed. This support can take many forms, including help with errands and chores around the house, child care and financial and logistical support.

This effort is being supported by the Clackamas County Peace Officers' Benevolent Foundation (CCPOBF), and your contributions can make a real difference. To make a donation, send a check to:

CCPOBF
attn: Military Employee Support Program
P.O. Box 678
Clackamas, OR 97015

In closing, I'd like to thank everyone who has ever worn our nation's uniform -- but most especially those who are deployed right now, whether they are on active duty, in the National Guard, or the reserves. At the same time, I think it is critical that we recognize and honor their families.

You may never set foot on a battlefield, but you are also making a very real sacrifice for our country. You bear the heavy burden of being separated from your husband or wife, son or daughter, for a year or more, along with all the uncertainty and stress that accompanies their military service. Thank you for your courage, your strength and your commitment.

On Wednesday, Oct. 22, 2014, the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office Domestic Violence Enhanced Response Team (DVERT) worked with agencies throughout Oregon -- as well as agencies across the country -- to arrest persons with outstanding family-violence warrants. Locally, they conducted a total of 205 arrest warrant service attempts.

By 10 p.m. Wednesday, this massive enforcement effort resulted in the arrests of 38 men and women in Clackamas County with existing family-violence-related arrest warrants. (24 were arrested by authorities; 14 turned themselves in. These figures may be updated as more agencies report in.) Arrestees have been booked in the Clackamas and Multnomah County Jails.

Local agencies that participated in Clackamas County included police departments from Canby, Lake Oswego, Gladstone, Oregon City, and West Linn, as well as the U.S. Marshals Service and Clackamas County Community Corrections.

The 12th Annual Family Violence Apprehension Detail included approximately 220 county sheriffs' offices, police departments, probation departments, and community agencies from 26 states. All agencies served outstanding arrest warrants -- with charges ranging from harassment to murder.

This collaborative effort, commonly known as the SWEEP, helps raise awareness of the problem of family and domestic violence in our communities. It also demonstrates to offenders that they will be held accountable for their violence.

In a pre-SWEEP briefing at the Public Safety Training Center, Clackamas County Sheriff Craig Roberts spoke to law-enforcement personnel and the media, along with Amanda Marshall, U.S. Attorney, District of Oregon and Jessica, a woman who shared her powerful story of escaping an abusive relationship.
