Free Child Safety Seat Clinic - 06/13/18

 

On June 16, 2018, Beaverton Police Department, along with Safe Kids Coalition of Washington County and Kuni Auto Center, will be offering a free child safety seat clinic. The clinic will run from 9:00 AM to 11:30 AM at the Kuni Auto Center located at 3725 SW Cedar Hills Blvd. Beaverton, OR 97005.

Motor-vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death nationwide for children ages 1-12. In 2015, 1,353 children under age 9 were injured in Oregon traffic crashes; six children died. It's estimated that car seats may increase crash survival by 71% for infants under 1 year old, and by up to 59% for toddlers ages 1-4. Booster seats may reduce the chance of nonfatal injury among 4- to 8-year-olds by 45% compared to safety belts used alone.

For more information about the proper fit of a child safety seat please visit https://www.nhtsa.gov/equipment/car-seats-and-booster-seats.

No appointment is necessary so please just drop in. Arriving early is recommended as we sometimes have more vehicles than we can accommodate during the event timeframe. Each car seat check will take approximately 30 minutes.

Free Document Shredding Event - 06/06/18

Beaverton Police Department will be providing a free document shredding event on Saturday, June 9, 2018, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. This event will be held at the Sunset Presbyterian Church located at 14986 NW Cornell Rd. Portland Oregon 97229.

Identity theft and fraud crimes continue to be of great concern for all of us. Beaverton Police Department would like to help you avoid becoming a victim of identity theft and fraud, by keeping your personal information away from the hands of identity thieves. One of the methods identity thieves use to steal your information is combing through recycling and garbage for sensitive information that has been thrown away.

Beaverton Police Department recommends and encourages the community to use a shredder (preferably cross-cut) for sensitive documents, such as credit card statements, financial statements, pre-approved credit card offers, old IRS tax forms, bank checks, household bills, and other documents that may contain sensitive information.

Shred-it will be on site with two commercial-sized shredding trucks for this event. Items no larger than staples and paper clips may be attached to the papers. Because of the popularity of this event, each vehicle will only be allowed three banker style boxes of documents to be shredded. This event is not for business documents. It is for personal documents only that contain personal information that if thrown out could lead to identity theft.

Service will be on a first come, first served basis and limited to the capacity of the commercial-sized shredding trucks from Shred-it. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause should the capacity be reached. Participants are encouraged to donate canned food to the Oregon Food Bank at the shredding event. Volunteers will be on site to accept these food donations.

Please do not contact Sunset Presbyterian Church with questions about this shredding event. All information related to this event is posted on the Beaverton Police Department’s web page and Facebook page.

Average BAC in May Alcohol DUIIs was .15% - 06/04/18

 

The Beaverton Police Department is participating in a yearlong National Traffic Safety Campaign again in 2018. The focus of this campaign is taking impaired drivers off our streets, keeping Beaverton a safe city to travel and live.

Officers were out on targeted patrols for impaired drivers during the month of May and made 28 DUII arrests. During the month of June, officers will continue their efforts to take impaired drivers off the streets of our no refusal city. This High Visibility Enforcement (HVE) detail was paid for by grant funds. Out of the 28 arrests, 6 people refused to take a breath test and a warrant for a blood draw was granted. Out of the people who were arrested for an alcohol related DUII and provided a breath sample, the average blood alcohol content in their blood was .15%.

10 Of the 28 DUII drivers in May crashed their car prior to being arrested. 15 Intoxicated drivers, which included the 10 traffic crashes, were found by citizens calling the police and 13 intoxicated drivers were found by our patrol officers performing self-initiated activity. Drunk driving, impaired driving or buzzed driving all have the potential to claim lives and often will result in jail time. The men and women of the Beaverton Police Department ask you to please use a designated driver or find another sober ride home.
