Beaverton Police is proud of our innovative accomplishments and community based policing profile. We believe that plays a significant role in our being voted the safest city in Oregon and one of the safest cities on the west coast.

Part of any successful departments plan must and should include partnerships. We have been fortunate to forge some strong and long term relationships that allow us to take advantage of and share in resources and expertise. Our multi agency co-ops include:

Interagency Gang Enforcement Team (IGET). The mission of IGET is to aggressively track, monitor, and document gang affiliates, as well as investigate gang related criminal activity. One Beaverton Officer is dedicated to this interagency team, along with one Hillsboro Officer, three deputies, one sergeant, five corrections deputies, and a corrections sergeant from the Washington County Sherriff’s Office.
Metro Gang Task Force (MGTF). The task force is made up of personnel from the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms (ATF), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and six police agencies in the Metro area, including the Beaverton Police Department. Beaverton dedicates one detective to the Task Force. Participation on the Task Force enhances the departments continuing efforts to address gang issues, and complements its involvement with the Washington County IGET.

TriMet Transit Police Division. The TriMet Westside Transit Precinct combines forces from the Beaverton and Hillsboro police departments and the Washington County Sherriff’s office. A BPD sergeant and two officers are assigned to the Westside Precinct and one BPD officer is assigned to TriMets Central Operations. The Westside Precinct of the transit police will continue to address community issues and transit violations occurring on light rail trains, buses, and TriMet properties west of the Washington Park/Oregon Zoo Light Rail Max Station.

Westside Interagency Narcotics (WIN) Team. The WIN team enforces drug laws and targets low to mid-level drug traffickers in and around Washington County. The department dedicates two officers to this thirteen member team that combines the efforts of the Beaverton, Hillsboro, and Tigard police departments, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, the FBI, and the National Guard. The team also works closely with other narcotics task forces in the area, as well as various federal agencies.

“Innocence Lost” Human Trafficking Task Force. The Task Force consists of local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies and victim-based advocacy groups that combine resources and expertise on the issue of human trafficking. The Task Force evaluates the nature and extent of human trafficking in our area, conducts investigations, and develops intelligence for potential cases. A Beaverton Detective divides his time between the Task Force and local investigations.

Northwest Regional Computer Forensics Lab (RCFL). One Detective is dedicated to the RCFL which is a computer forensic laboratory devoted entirely to digital evidence. Investigations of crimes such as terrorism, child pornography, internet crime, fraud and identity theft, crimes of violence, and theft or destruction of proprietary information or property are supported by the RCFL. Participants include federal, state and local law enforcement personnel.
