TUCPF Programs Requiring Funding

 

 

K-9 Medical Retirement Fund

Our Drug Enforcement K-9 "Tony" has just started his career searching for illegal drugs.  Net proceeds from sales of a toy "Tony" will go toward a fund to pay his and other Tualatin's K-9 retirement medical expenses.

Purchase a toy Tony and Support the K-9 Medical Fund

When you buy a plush "Tony" you support the real deal. Net proceeds will provide medical support for our beloved K-9 Tony when he retires from service and rejoins civilian life.

Purchasing your own "Tony" dog online using a credit/debit card or paypal account is easy! Just click red button. 

To 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.

 

We are unable to ship.

 

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

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 - 6th 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 - 6th 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.

 

 

Ballistic Shields

Ballistic shields provide protection for officers when dealing with volatile situations.  The shields provide additional protection to the body armor worn by officers.  The shields protect against bullets fired from handguns. 

Women's Self Defense Course

 

Tualatin Police Officers will instruct women 14 and older to participate in a free personal safety class.  This is a hands-on class that empowers women with tools to maintain personal safety and to successfully confront and survive potentially dangerous situations.

The course will be a focus on situational awareness and how to defend yourself against an attacker intending to sexually assault you.

 

Overnight Crisis Emergency Stay Support

Approximately once or twice a month, patrol officers encounter individuals who need a place to go.  Sometimes it is a domestic situation where no crime has been committed but the parties would benefit by being separated for a while.  At times, they have nowhere else to go or there are no personal resources to pay for a motel or hotel.

 

The officer on the scene uses his/her discretion at the time to determine if the voucher is appropriate.  If so, the officer will request a voucher from a shift supervisor.  The officer may or may not have to transport the individual needing help.  The shift supervisor will verify that there is space available and confirm a space at the facility. The officer also gives the individual contact information for Washington County resources.
