Dear officer who pulled me over tonight:

Usually getting pulled over results in me doing the ugly cry... And trust me, it's a RARITY that I get pulled over. I just so happened to be driving home fro...m work at an ungodly hour tonight. You were very courteous when you pulled me over despite the hairs on my neck standing on end at the thought of you stalking my jeep for a few blocks. You see, I was kind of cringing at the thought of that one officer (can't remember his name) that is notorious for jumping to conclusions and being overly rude... He kind of reminds Scappoosanites of that one outcast deputy off of Sooper Troopers that attacks a fast food worker during the credit reel... remember??? You, on the other hand, notified me that my brake lights were out, patiently waited for me to find my necessary documents, didn't force me to step out of the vehicle when I notified you that I had a CHL permit, and didn't give me a power trip. You go, man in blue! Gold star for you! The icing on the cake was that you gave me a warning and didn't impede traffic in pulling me over. Thanks for looking out for my safety, as well as yours. I just might carry on my grandmother's tradition in making cookies for cops because of your demeanor. Good night!

We had the most corrupt individual serving as the Police Chief here in our quaint little town until 2-1/2 to 3 years ago. This Police Chief truly belongs in prison. He was finally fired and is now run...ning around free in public: huge travesty. Now it appears perhaps our new one is no better. My husband got arrested 6-7 years ago in a local restaurant/bar for attempting to defend our daughter from two people inside this establishment whom had put her into tears repeatedly by showing up where she worked and harassing her to the point of putting her in tears at her work place because they did not like her. First of all: you don't do this. Next you go threaten issuing a ticket to the repeat offenders. None of this was done. When these two individuals came into the eatery and sat about 5 feet from my husband knowing full well their little scheme. Then they mouthed off to my husband. Well: things went down hill quickly. They lied, got other people to lie, had my husband arrested for disturbing the peace (which got dropped). Strangely looking into the story these two individuals just happened to have multiple charges for dealing drugs in our county. We also happen to be business owners getting talked talked down to the way police think it proper to do so around here? We are the victims here not anyone else. Now we experience someone stealing expensive packages from our place of business when delivery companies such as UPS refuses to follow simple instructions and use the bell or call us (we are in a 360 degree secured area that has no public access to keep precious customer business related items safe) and require this. the sign is right on the door laminated and in 2 inch tall letters in red ink to catch their attention. The lead remark just happened to come from the very officer that arrested my husband during that event and he stated "your the guy we arrested at the restaurant" to which my husband replied: yes, help me understand how this has anything to do with 6-7 years later and stolen packages? They talked down and disrespectfully so badly to my husband that he had to walk away. They flat refused to file our police report and flat refused to provide an officer who would remain unbiased 6-7 years later. In the professional world this would warrant immediate termination of someone being so disrespectful, as a supposed professional, bringing up something entirely irrelevant as a way to make you feel belittled. To make you feel like a "lesser than valued tax paying citizen" in order to spare them the time of doing their job. If this is the finest we got? Were screwed. See More

Thank you so much for having officers escort children across the highway on their way to school, and your presence around the schools in the morning. Both have made a noticeable difference in how peo...ple are driving in those areas. Thank you for keeping our kids safe! See More

Last night, at real close to midnight, a car came severly close to slamming in to the back of us. We were in left lane, passing another car on the right of us. We will call this driver " The IDIOT ...MORON" and a bunch of $&!^#*/(@) other words, switched lanes and decided to run up on the back of the car we were passing and about took him out too. What do you know, a cop was behind him. Yaaaaaayy!!!
As the officer attempted to pull him over, The Moron about caused a 3 car pile up for an inproper lane change now putting the officer in danger. I have never been so tickled in my life to see flashing lights when he pulled "THE IDIOT, MORON" over !!!! Thank you so much for keeping us safe Officer. You are extremly appreciated!!! I would love to shake your hand. Our daughters and one of their frinds were also in the Jeep. If the driver wasn't drunk, I will truely be surprised. Maybe just stupid. Can't thank you enough. I pray for you all to return safely to your families. Keep up the good work! Amen.

The Scappoose Police Department is proud to assist Karly Packineau with her senior project in collecting new books for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in Randall's Children's Hospital. Please bring your new books for donation to the Scappoose Police Department.


Hello, my name is Karly Packineau and I am a senior at Scappoose High School and a member of their National Honor Society. As part of my Senio...r project for N.H.S, I will be holding a fundraiser to collect new books that will be distributed to babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Randall Children’s Hospital.

This fundraiser holds a special place in my heart, as the NICU at Randall’s took care of my baby brother who was born 8 weeks early. It is my hope that I can help put a smile on the faces of other families that are going through the same experience that my family went through three years ago.

I will be running the fundraiser from March 2-March 23.

Thank you very much for your help with my project and putting a smile on families in the NICU.
