Getting ready for tax time yet? Here's a chance to safely dispose of the papers you're sure you won't be needing to keep.

Free Document Shredding Event

The Beaverton Police Department will be offering an opportunity for you to safely recycle documents containing personal information on Saturday, December 12, 2015 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. The City of Beaverton 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.

For this reason, the Beaverton Police Department recommends and encourages citizens 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 page.

Why is a covered bike rack such a big deal at the West Slope Library? Because, it rains in Oregon.

Police dog, Jago, retires after 10 years; looks forward to chew toy

Almost derailed from a distinguished career as a K9 officer, Jago overcame an early injury and served with Officer Ken Magnus for close to 10 years on the Beaverton Police Department.

Most of Jago's career was spent finding suspects and barking an alert to his human partner, but he had his share of captures.

Team Jago retires after more than 9 years of service in the Beaverton Police Department. A well deserved retirement awaits a dog whose heart and spirit are as big as he is.

K9 Team Jago and Officer Ken Magnus Retire After 9 Years, 9 Months and 17 Days of Service to Beaverton

Jago joined the Beaverton Police Department on December 22, 2005 at the age of 14 months and his last day of service was November 9, 2015. Jago and Officer Magnus had 122 captures, serviced 2,929 calls for service and spent 383 hours on K9 related calls.

Jago was diagnosed with arthritis that could have been career ending about a year after he started. Officer Magnus never lost faith in Jago and with the support of the Police Department he found a treatment that showed promise in helping him. Jago received a stem cell treatment that involved taking his stem cells, having them processed at a lab and then injected into his affected joints. This treatment was successful and Jago went on to win an agility contest a year after his treatment.

Jago and Officer Magnus were an amazing team and provided such a service to Beaverton and the surrounding communities. Jago will now have to adjust to being a dog and not a Police K9. Jago will continue to live with his partner and best friend Officer Magnus. Officer Magnus has moved on to other duties as a Beaverton Police Officer.

Jago and Officer Magnus were both recognized this evening during the Beaverton City Council meeting for their years of service. Jago enjoyed his retierment gifts that were given to him by the Mayor.

Thank you Jago and Officer Magnus.

In Oregon, small classes come at suburban districts' expense

An interesting read from Betsy Hammond, school's reporter. Explains somewhat the disparity in class sizes across the state. But does class size really determine a student's ability to learn?

Did you know, Oregon has some of the largest class sizes in the country?

Democratic Oregon Gov. Kate Brown was undoubtedly told by Democratic pollsters to stop blaming the police and federal investigators for the sustained violence in Portland. Are you Oregon voters nuts?
Smart move. 👀
How can I cancel my annoying "free" newspapers that come to my driveway each week, including 2 issues of the Oregonian? I have called multiple times, and each time I have been told that they would cancel me, but I still get the papers. I simply pick up the paper and carry them directly to the trash can. But I am over 70 years old, had recent major back surgery (I am now supposed to bend over for a few months), and it is not pleasant to do this especially on rainy days. Help!
