NEWS RELEASE:

Bend Police Department Service Changes

 

The Bend Police Department strives to provide the highest level of service to the community.  Three changes to service are being implemented to advance this commitment. As always, the Bend Police Department will continue to strive for excellence and will continue to look at new ways to better serve the citizens of Bend.

 

As of today, investigations for all “hit and run” motor vehicle crashes will be conducted.  Previously, the agency reduced this service due to staffing levels and call volume.  Officers will now respond to and investigate even the most minor “hit and run” crashes, such as “hit and runs” that occur on premises open to the public (parking lots) where there is limited or no suspect information.

 

A fingerprinting service is also now available to the community, at the Bend Police Department. Many employers require this documentation for background checks and our agency is excited to help assist the public with this process. We will begin offering this new service on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1-4pm.  If you would like additional details regarding cost or to schedule an appointment please call (541) 322-2960.

 

The Bend Police Department makes every effort to investigate all crimes, to include thefts, and attempt to recover property for victims. To assist in the recovery process you can take a proactive approach by documenting serial numbers of your valuables, even your bicycle has a serial number. Over the last month, there has been an increase in bicycle thefts. To assist in the aid of recovering a stolen bike the Bend Police Department highly encourages you to register your bike within the City of Bend. You can do this at a variety of local bicycle shops or department stores (including Walmart and Fred Meyer) that we have partnered with or community members can always register their bicycles during business hours at the Bend Police Department.
