The Police Department is served by eleven sworn Officers, one Executive Assistant/Evidence Technician and one Code Enforcement Officer.  The Tillamook Police Department proudly serves our residents, visitors and those who work here, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  We are responsible for enforcing all city laws and ordinances within the Tillamook City limits.  

The front office, located at 207 Madrona Avenue, is open between the hours of 7am-4pm, Monday through Thursday.  For your convenience, there is a secure prescription drug drop box located inside the lobby door, donated, and maintained by, the Med-Project. 

In addition, Police Department personnel work with the Tillamook County Sheriff’s Office, Oregon State Police, Tillamook County 911 District, Tillamook Fire District, and other first-responders in beneficial mutual aid relationships.

The foundation of our police department is built upon the principles of ensuring we are People 1st, Mission Centered, and Trauma Informed.  We believe in working hand in hand with our community to ensure a safe environment for all built upon the principles of trust, transparency, and collaboration.


The Office of the Chief provides the overall direction of the department.  The Police Chief oversees public information and outreach, finance, and administration (e.g., strategic planning, budgeting, policy, payroll, accreditation, purchasing, and grant management), the Chaplain program, and labor relations.


Our Patrol Officers are the backbone of the Police Department and are the most visible.  These highly trained officers handle day-to-day calls for service, emergencies, and criminal investigations.  Our Patrol Officer’s are committed to providing a safe and livable community by enforcing laws and utilizing and coordinating patrol and other resources to proactively reduce the opportunity for criminal activity.


Our Officers are highly trained professionals dedicated to public safety.  We hold ourselves to a very high standard, seeking the best training and equipment to enable us to respond to emergencies and complex situations in the most effective, trauma informed and caring manner possible.

Officers take a trauma informed and position of empathy when resolving matters through community partnerships and collaboration with trained clinicians, advocates, and other agencies.  Officers are committed to preserving the peace and protecting the public by seeking long term solutions for the issues that affect livability within our community.


Your Officer’s patrol 24/7 with overlapping shifts.  Each shift is staffed by officers with a variety of specialized skills and is supervised by a Sergeant.  Sergeants oversee each patrol shift and are responsible for critical incident management and the daily operations of the Patrol Division.  Sergeants are responsible for coordinating and directing the overall operation of patrol and they report directly to the Chief of Police.
