K-9 Drug Enforcement

Our Drug Enforcement K-9 "Tony" has just started his career searching for illegal drugs.  Donations to this fund support the Tualatin Police Department K-9 program expenses.

Purchase a toy K-9 "Tony"

When you buy a plush "Tony" for $20, net proceeds provides operating support to the Tualatin Police Department programs.

To purchase online using a debit or credit card or paypal, click on the read purchase Tony button.

We can't ship your toy.  However, you can pick up at the Tualatin Police Station during regular business hours - just show your dated paypal receipt.  If you can't make it during business hours, we can hold your "Tony" for pick up after hours at a volunteer's home.  Send us an email if you need a special pickup arrangement.

 

Thank you for supporting the Foundation and our incredible K-9 program.

Purchase Tony

Shop with a Cop - Back To School

The purpose of the event is to foster positive relationships between underprivileged youth and police officers.  Children who are in the age group of K - 8th grade will be selected each year during the pre-school season to shop at one of the local area stores to purchase clothing and supplies for the school year.  Each child is given a small amount of money to spend, normally $50-$100.  Each child is assigned to each police officer, who then escorts them around the store and assists in selecting appropriate items for child. After shopping, the children will eat lunch with the police officers.

 

This is a nationally known program throughout the United States.  This provides an opportunity for police officers to engage young people in a positive environment and helps build relations with community members

 

 

Shop with a Cop - Winter

The purpose of the event is to foster positive relationships between underprivileged youth and police officers.  Children who are in the age group of K - 8th grade will be selected each year during the holiday season to shop at one of the local area stores to purchase gifts for members of their immediate family.  Each child is given a small amount of money to spend, normally $50-$100 depending on the size of the child's immediate family. Each child is assigned to each police officer, who then escorts them around the store and assists in selecting appropriate gifts for each family member. The children are told, and understand, that the money is not for personal use and must only be spent on family members. After shopping, the children will eat lunch with the police officers.

 

This is a nationally known program throughout the United States.  This provides an opportunity for police officers to engage young people in a positive environment and helps build relations with community members that are unable to enjoy the holidays due to financial restraints.

Community Outreach

 TUCPF participated in a new event the department organized with Horizon Church and Esperanza Church called Faith in Blue. This was an open house at the Tualatin Police Department focused on outreach to the Latino community including great food and a chance to sit on a police motorcycle.

Turkeys Not Tickets

 

During the holidays, the Department picks out a very special day.  Tualatin Police Officers hand out turkeys instead of tickets for minor traffic violations.  Drivers are reminded to drive carefully while receiving a welcomed addition to their holiday meal.

Staff Heath Screening

 

The first program offered in-depth health screening for employees of the Tualatin Police Department through a program called Sigma Tactical Wellness Program. This screening is vital, given average lifespan of a police officer is only fifty-seven years and they are 45% more likely to experience heart failure. TUCPF agreed to cover the $100 out-of-pocket costs for each participant.
