The Oregon Police Division is committed to excellence through partnership with the community that builds trust, reduces crime and creates a safe environment. Through education, enforcement and prevention, we will improve the quality of life by practicing our core beliefs of Integrity, Professionalism, Fairness and Teamwork. The Oregon Police Division employs 47 sworn and 14 civilian employees. The Department serves a community of approximately 20,000 residents spanning an area of 28 square miles along the Lake Erie shoreline.
As a medium size department, each officer must develop a wide range of skills and is encouraged to pursue preliminary investigations, traffic enforcement and other specific duties where the situation merits. Because of the multitude of tasks performed, each officer becomes well rounded in all facets of law enforcement.
The Division maintains an investigations, vice/narcotics and juvenile bureau. In addition, a special response team is highly trained and capable of providing a specialized police response to dangerous or high risk situations.
