Vehicle Safety Belt and Child Safety Seat Campaign Underway Soon In Tigard (Photo) - 08/16/19

The Tigard Police Department will once again participate in a nationwide traffic safety effort to enforce Oregon seat belt laws. The campaign will also include a focus on child safety seats, which play an ever more important role to keep children safe while riding in vehicles. Oregon State Police, sheriff’s and local police will all be working to increase proper safety belt and child car seat use during the statewide traffic enforcement blitz beginning on August 19th and continuing through September 1st. The two-week long effort will work to ensure motorists respect, obey and understand the importance of using seat belts and child safety seats when applicable. Tigard Police officers will be focusing enforcement at various times and days throughout Tigard. This effort is made possible through dedicated federal funding providing overtime opportunities to carry out the program which is managed in Oregon through ODOT.

The 2017 crash data from ODOT shows lack of safety belt or child restraint use was a factor in 22% or 64 of a total 285 motor vehicle occupant fatalities. Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for children ages one through twelve years of age. It is estimated that car seats may increase crash survival by 71% for infants under one year old and up to 59% for toddlers aged one to four.

Many child car seat fitting stations will host special events during National Child Passenger Safety Week set for September 15th through the 21st, with certified technicians on-hand to assist families with selection and use of car seats and boosters. Information regarding safety clinics as well as guidelines and correct usage for child safety seats can be found at www.oregonimpact.org

Tigard Man Arrested Following Afternoon Shooting (Photo) - 08/16/19

On Thursday, August 15, 2019 at approximately 6 p.m., Tigard Police were notified that a man allegedly had been shot and was requesting medical help. Police quickly responded to an area near Greenburg Rd. and Center St. where the victim was waiting. Upon arrival, the 41-year-old victim was assisted until emergency medical personnel arrived and transported the injured man to a local hospital via ambulance.

 

Shortly after, Tigard Police were on scene gathering evidence and witness statements which ultimately sent them to the 11700 block of Greenburg Rd. There, Tigard Police took a 61-year-old Tigard man into custody. Glenn Howard Fischbuch was charged with Attempted Murder, Assault and Unlawful Use of a Weapon. Fischbuch was later lodged in the Washington County Jail and is awaiting arraignment.

 

The shooting victim was treated and released from the hospital several hours later that same evening. Investigators believe the incident stemmed from a dispute between the two men who were acquainted. The investigation is continuing. Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to contact Tigard Police at 503-718-COPS (2677) or tips@tigard-or.gov
