News Release from Oregon State Police - Statewide
Posted on FlashAlert: December 31st, 2014 3:56 PM
In early September 2014, OSP Fish & Wildlife troopers from Central Point investigated a report of a trophy bull elk killed off Lake Creek Road; only the head was taken with the rest of the elk carcass left to waste.

Additionally, troopers received reports of several deer carcasses in the same area which had only the heads removed also. Rewards were offered from several sources totaling over $15,000.00. The Oregon Hunters Association, Humane Society of the United States, and The Cascade Ranch all offered reward monies.

After receiving tips from callers OSP Troopers identified two men believed to be responsible for taking the trophy bull elk and four buck deer. The elk and deer antlers were recovered and both men were issued criminal citations to appear in the Jackson County Circuit court.

AUSTIN BURKETT, 19, from Eagle Point, was cited for Unlawful Take of Deer (2 counts), Unlawful Take of Elk, and Waste of Wildlife (3 counts).

CHRISTIAN D. COCHRAN, 19, from Eagle Point, was cited for Unlawful Take of Deer (2 counts), Aiding in a Wildlife Crime, and Waste of Wildlife.

Trooper Josh Nugent is the case officer form this case. Anyone with more information is asked to please call (541) 618-7973.

Today at about 2:10 p.m., deputies with the Marion County Traffic Safety Team responded to a single vehicle crash in the 12600 block of Donald Road NE. The driver and passenger were negotiating a corner, when their Nissan Frontier lost contr ol, struck a tree and then rebounded back across the roadway.

Deputies believe the passenger was ejected after the collision with the tree and the driver had to be extricated by fire personnel. The passenger was transported by ambulance to Salem Hospital with what are being described as serious injuries. The driver was flown via Life Flight to OHSU with critical injuries. Donald Road is currently closed while deputies conclude their investigation. Deputies do believe speed is a factor in the crash.

Because of the seriousness of the injuries sustained by both parties involved in the crash, the Sheriff's Office will not be releasing the names of the driver and passenger until all family notifications have been made.

RecycleRight App offers recycling tips for Christmas trees and more

RECYCLERIGHT APP OFFERS RECYCLING TIPS FOR CHRISTMAS TREES AND MORE


News Release from City of Vancouver
Posted on FlashAlert: December 31st, 2014 3:12 PM
Vancouver, Wash. - Out with the old year! In with the new RecycleRight App, with tips on where to take those needle-dropping Christmas trees, unwanted electronics, clean block foam and more.

The City of Vancouver, Clark County and Waste Connections of Washington have partnered to provide residential customers with a handy resource for recycling, reusing and disposing of no-longer-needed items. The new RecycleRight App for smart phones and tablets is available for free through the Apple iTunes or GooglePlay stores. To access it fast, visit the City's website at www.cityofvancouver.us/recycling and click on your app store button. A web-version of the Recycling A-Z wizard is also available there, making it easy for everyone to use.

You'll find a variety of options for recycling cut Christmas trees as the holiday season draws to a close.

Vancouver residents who subscribe to the optional yard-debris service, as with yard-debris subscribers throughout much of the county, may place cut trees that are 5-feet-tall or less, for no charge, in or next to their yard debris carts on their next yard-debris collection day. Trees taller than 5 feet must be cut into smaller pieces. Please note that customers whose have exceeded their 96-gallon limit on yard debris will be charged a one-time fee of $3.15 for pickup. In addition, for residents who don't have yard-debris service, setting out a cut tree at the curb for collection will result in an additional charge of $6.38 or more, depending upon size of the tree, and the tree will be treated as garbage, not recycling.

Natural Christmas trees also may be recycled at the locations below. Please call before going to check hours or get answers to questions:

- Central Transfer Recycling, 11034 N.E. 117th Ave., (360) 256-8482. $1 per tree, up to three trees.

- West Van Materials Center, 6601 N.W. Old Lower River Road, (360) 737-1727. $1 per tree, up to three trees.

In addition to the various options shown above, a variety of nonprofit organizations work to collect and recycle cut Christmas trees for a nominal fee.

For more information on the RecycleRight App, Christmas tree recycling and other ways to reuse, reduce and recycle, call 360-619-4120 or visit www.cityofvancouver.us/solidwaste.

Downloadable file: Fish_Truck_Spill_1.JPG
Oregon State Police troopers are continuing the investigation into Tuesday Afternoon's crash on highway 126E near milepost 11, in Cedar Flat; just east of Springfield.

Preliminary investigation indicates that at approximately 2:50 p.m., a westbound Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) fish delivery tanker driving on highway 126E was loaded with 11,000 Chinook salmon smolts and water and headed to the Row River near Cottage Grove where they were to be released. The fish were being transferred as a result of low water concerns at McKenzie Hatchery caused by floodgate malfunctions at Leaburg Dam, which provides water to the hatchery.

As the driver, identified as RAY C. LEWIS, 45, of Umpqua Oregon, was negotiating a curve the vehicle went off the roadway and crashed into a power pole and some trees. The truck overturned and spilled its contents at the roadside. All of the fish being transported died as a result of the crash.

LEWIS suffered facial and scalp lacerations and was transported to the hospital for treatment of other unknown injuries. Alcohol is being investigated as a contributing factor in this incident and additional investigation is pending. OSP is being assisted by the Lane County District Attorney's Office (LCDA).

Further inquiries regarding the fish transfer should be directed to Rick Swart, Public Information Officer for ODFW, at 971-673-6038 or Rick.Swart@state.or.us.

OSP was assisted at the scene by the Oregon Department of Transportation, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, and McKenzie Fire and Rescue.

Deputy Retiring After 32 Years of Service (Photo)

DEPUTY RETIRING AFTER 32 YEARS OF SERVICE (PHOTO)


News Release from Marion Co. Sheriff's Office
Posted on FlashAlert: December 31st, 2014 8:54 AM
Downloadable file: K_Rau.jpg
Downloadable file: IMGP0693.jpg
On December 31st, after thirty-two years of law enforcement service, Marion County Deputy Kevin Rau is hanging up his duty belt for the last time.

Deputy Rau began his law enforcement career in the Army in 1982, where he also served as a military policeman. He moved to the Oregon Department of Corrections in 1988, serving as a corrections officer and a K9 handler. He arrived at the Sheriff's Office in 1994. During his 20 year career with the Sheriff's Office, Deputy Rau served as a patrol deputy, school resource officer, public information officer, training coordinator, negotiator, K9 handler and civil process server.

But it was in 2005 that Kevin settled into the role that fit him best. After experiencing a steady rise in calls related to mentally ill people and an estimated 25% jail population with a diagnosed mental illness, the Sheriff's Office began seeking ways to best handle mental illness-related calls. The first step was to provide deputies with knowledge about various mental health conditions: the symptoms, the tendencies and the best way to approach and assist individuals with these illnesses. In 2006, we launched a 40-hour crisis intervention training (CIT) program, led by Deputy Rau.

The training focuses on best practices in handling calls involving mentally ill people and locating services to address their complex issues, while attempting to avoid unnecessary incarceration. The information is presented by field experts, law enforcement professionals, as well as mental health services consumers. As of 2014, we have completed our 14th session of CIT training, bringing the total trained personnel to nearly 400 officers and deputies from 23 agencies in the region. CIT is based on a model that has become the standard for mental health crisis intervention training across the country.

In 2010, we further solidified partnerships around this issue, with the creation of a Mental Health Task Force, made up of law enforcement agencies in Marion County, the District Attorney's Office and the Marion County Health Department.

That same year, the Crisis Outreach Response Team (CORT) was formed to unify the response and processing of the volume of calls involving people with mental illness. Deputy Rau applied for and was assigned to the team. CORT is a law enforcement/mental health collaborative outreach team that attempts to identify those citizens (based on police reports) who are having frequent contact with police and who also have an apparent mental health concern. The goal of CORT is to divert those people away from using emergency services and toward health, mental health, alcohol and drug treatment, and peer support services. In 2013, CORT reviewed more than 2,000 police reports from agencies in Marion County and attempted to offer services to more than 370 individuals.

Expanding the capabilities of the Mental Health Task Force, in 2014, the Mobile Crisis Response Team (MCRT) was formed to add an immediate response component to what CORT was already doing. MCRT pairs a law enforcement officer and a mental health professional who can respond directly to police calls for service, where there may be a mental health concern. The ultimate goal of MCRT is the same as CORT: to reduce the criminalization of mental illness and to reduce the potential for these incidents ending in tragedy.

Sheriff Myers added, "Kevin was a critical component in developing a system within Marion County that fits our diverse needs and addresses the issue of mental health and incarceration. His service to our community will not soon be forgotten and we wish him well in his retirement."

Kevin told me that in his retirement, he plans to continuing teaching CIT to police officers and deputies at the Department of Public Safety Standards and Training. He added that for Christmas his wife got him a miter saw and a work bench. Kevin stated, "Honey, message received!"

News Release from American Red Cross - Cascades Region
Posted on FlashAlert: December 30th, 2014 4:33 PM
The outside thermometer reads 32 degrees but it feels much colder - way below freezing! That's due to cold east winds and the wind advisory that is in effect this evening.

- Minimize travel; if travel is necessary, carry a disaster supplies kit in your vehicle.
- Bring pets/companion animals inside; move other animals or livestock to sheltered areas.
- Make sure pet/animal drinking water does not freeze.
- Dress in layers of lightweight clothing; wear mittens/gloves and a hat.
- Wear waterproof, insulated boots/shoots to keep your feet warm and dry, and to maintain your footing in ice and snow.
- Keep all fuel-burning equipment vented to the outside.
- Download the Red Cross First Aid mobile app (http://www.redcross.org/mobile-apps/first-aid-app) to recognize and know what to do for frostbite or hypothermia.
- Check on and help neighbors/elderly who may need special assistance.
- Never use a generator, grill, camp stove or other gasoline, propane, natural gas or charcoal-burning devices inside a home, garage, basement, crawlspace or partially enclosed area.

Commercial Trucks Using Back Roads to Bypass Interstate 5 Scales (Photo)

COMMERCIAL TRUCKS USING BACK ROADS TO BYPASS INTERSTATE 5 SCALES (PHOTO)


News Release from Marion Co. Sheriff's Office
Posted on FlashAlert: December 30th, 2014 3:50 PM
Downloadable file: Truck Stop
In the fall of this year, Sheriff Jason Myers and the Board of Commissioners were made aware of a potential problem related to commercial truck traffic in and around the city of Woodburn. Community members and City of Woodburn Officials indicated that they believed commercial trucks were exiting Interstate 5 prior to port of entry scales and using arterial roads (Boone Ferry Rd and Settlemier Rd.) to travel around the scales and then back onto the interstate.

After hearing the complaint the Sheriff's Office Traffic Safety Team (TST) in conjunction with Marion County Public Works Department began to count the amount of commercial truck traffic in the area. From this count officials determined that semi trucks were using Boones Ferry Road, but they could not determine if the trucks were being used by local farms or drivers bypassing the scales.

Based on the count, Sergeant Todd Moquin formulated a Traffic Safety Team enforcement plan to begin stopping truck traffic in the area. "What we found from these stops really concerned us," stated Sergeant Moquin. In a 30 day period, deputies with TST intermittently began working in the area, 14 stops were made and over a dozen citations were issued to commercial vehicles. Several of these vehicle drivers admitted to bypassing the commercial scales.

"This poses several safety issues for commuters in this area and causes damage to county and city roadways not designed for commercial traffic. These drivers generally go around scales to either avoid required rest periods, their trucks are overweight or the trucks have malfunctioning equipment. Regardless of the reason, bypassing a scale allows trucks and their drivers to go uninspected posing safety risks to motorists. This is a problem that we will continue to address from an education, engineering and enforcement approach," said Sergeant Moquin.

The Traffic Safety Team is currently working with Marion County Public Works, the City of Woodburn, Oregon Department of Transportation and the Oregon Truckers Association to educate drivers and work on a long term solution. Sergeant Moquin added, "We are getting the word out and working collaboratively with our community partners to identify a more permanent solution."

Sergeant Moquin stated, "While we explore this problem as a collective group, TST will continue to be in the immediate area and issuing citations to drivers found avoiding the scales."

Woodburn Mayor Kathy Figley appreciates the work the Sheriff's Office is putting in, confirming what she and the Council suspected.

"We recognized there was a problem and a potential risk for increased accidents, along with excessive road damage," she said. "I am thankful for the hard work and expediency Sheriff Myers and his team have worked in helping resolve this issue."

City Administrator Scott Derickson said the City is concerned about public safety impacts caused by illegal truck traffic.

"The City will continue to press for increased enforcement and public education in our effort to resolve the issue," he said. "I am grateful for all the help we have received from the County and Sheriff's Office."

The Oregon State Police wants to remind everyone to be prepared for winter driving conditions and to slow down. Two recent near-miss crashes act as reminders of the hazards of wi nter driving.

1 - On December 28, at around 7:10 p.m., two Oregon State Police troopers working a crash scene on I-84 near milepost 356 were outside their patrol car with emergency lighting activated when a car approached at too high of a rate of speed for the conditions and lost control. The car struck the patrol car causing damage to both. Both the driver of the car and the troopers were uninjured during the crash however, the patrol car had to be towed from the scene.

2 - On December 29, at around 9:47 a.m., Oregon State Police troopers responded to a two vehicle, non-injury crash involving a school bus on highway 101 near milepost 205 in Douglas County.

Preliminary information indicates a red, 2012 Ford Fusion, was travelling southbound and passing a school bus from Newport carrying 24 students and three coaches to a basketball tournament in Coos Bay. The roadway was wet and covered with hail and as the Fusion was completing the pass it lost control and hit the front corner of the bus. The Fusion left the roadway and went down over the embankment; coming to rest about 150 feet later after striking trees and other debris. None of the occupants in the school bus were injured. The driver of the Fusion, identified as DOROTHY M. HENDERSON, 74, of Florence, and her passenger were assisted by the Reedsport Fire Department Rope Rescue Team; they sustained minor injuries during the crash.

OSP was assisted by the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT), Reedsport Fire Department, Gardiner Fire Department and Mast Bros. towing.

This morning at 7:02 AM Portland Firefighters were called to a fire alarm at a residential high-rise building in downtown Portland (255 SW Harrison St.) When firefighters arrived they received reports from residents noting smoke in some of the hallways. The incident commander called for additional units to respond to the scene.

Firefighters began searching for the source of the smoke and working to evacuate residents. Due to the extreme cold residents were sheltered in the buildings lobby. Fires in high-rise buildings require a very specialized response with additional personnel. Due to increasing smoke and the number of residents fire commanders called for a "Second Alarm" bring more personnel and equipment to the scene.

The fire was located in an electrical vault on the 21st floor. Firefighters were able to hold the fire at bay using specialized extinguishers but the fire couldn't be extinguished until electricians could cut power to the unit. As soon as the fire was located and isolated firefighters began working to remove smoke from the building.

Residents were let back into their apartments as soon as the situation was deemed stable and safe. The vault affected floors 21-23 and those units will be without power until it can be repaired. The power company shut down the affected vault and firefighters were able to extinguish the fire. Fire investigators and the power company have determined that the cause of the fire was electrical and damage estimates are at $100,000 so far.

This fire is a good reminder that residents should immediately evacuate a building when the fire alarm sounds. Plan your escape route before an emergency and avoid elevators.

On Monday December 29, 2014, at 9:58 p.m., East Precinct officers responded to Southeast 119th Avenue and Market Street on the report that a vehicle crashed into a median and two males were stumbling outside the car in the Mill Park Neighborhood.

As officers were en route, the caller reported that the males got back into the car and were driving away westbound on Market Street and pulled into a driveway just West of Portland Christian Grade School.

An officer arrived in the area and could see two males running, then reported that they were throwing bottles of beer. None of the bottles struck the officer, who coordinated arriving cover units into the area.

Both males were located in the area and arrested by officers. A search of the vehicle revealed several car stereos and a rifle.

No officers or suspects were injured during this incident and the circumstances leading to the crash remain under investigation.

Updates will be provided on Tuesday.

News Release from Portland Police Bureau

On Tuesday December 30, 2014, at 3:37 a.m., a North Precinct officer responding to the report of a stolen car spotted a similar vehicle at Northeast 82nd Avenue and Webster Street.

As the officer attempted to stop the vehicle, the driver sped away northbound on 82nd Avenue, toward the Portland International Airport. As the pursuit neared the airport, several officers, including officers from the Port of Portland Police Department, attempted to stop the vehicle by using a Pursuit Intervention Technique (PIT), and later a box-in.

The suspect was able to maneuver the vehicle around the patrol cars, damaging two of them in the process, as he continued driving westbound on Northeast Cascades Parkway near Alderwood Road, driving on the sidewalk and damaging a third patrol car and a hotel shuttle van.

Port of Portland Police were able to effectively deploy Spike Strips to deflate the tires of the suspect vehicle, but the suspect continued driving on a frontage road to 82nd Avenue. Officers again attempted to PIT and box-in the vehicle, but the suspect was able to drive out of the attempted stops, damaging a fourth patrol car. The suspect drove into a fenced parking lot where he exited the vehicle and ran away.

Multiple officers, including a Police K-9 Unit, coordinated an area search and successfully apprehended the suspect. Further investigation found that the car was not related to the original stolen car call, but was a different, unreported stolen car.

The suspect, 24-year-old Andrew Eric Kunkel, was booked into the Multnomah County Jail on charges of Unlawful Use of a Motor Vehicle, Possession of a Stolen Motor Vehicle, Attempt to Elude by Vehicle, Attempt to Elude on Foot, and four (4) counts of Criminal Mischief in the First Degree.

Kunkel will be arraigned on Wednesday December 31, 2014, in Multnomah County Court.

Neither Kunkel or any officers were injured during this incident.

Salem, Ore. (Dec. 30, 2014) - Salem Fire Chief Mike Niblock announces the formation of the Salem Fire Foundation (SFF).

At its first board meeting in December, SFF elected: President, Danny Bisgaard; Vice President, Susan Moore and Secretary-Treasurer, Ray Sagner. Also serving on the board: Gerry Frank; William "Bud" Pierce, MD; Alex Rhoten and Niblock. Advisory Board Members include Janet Taylor; Kirk Walker, MD; Alison Kelley; Terri Walker, OD; Salem Police Deputy Chief Skip Miller; and Salem Fire's EMS Coordinator Jennifer Pratt.

Serving as staff and consultants include Mary Louise VanNatta, Executive Director; Ryan Collier, Attorney and Chuck Swank, Financial Management.

Sudden cardiac arrest kills more than 383,000 Americans each year. When sudden cardiac arrest occurs, the heart stops abruptly, without warning. For every minute that elapses, the chance of survival diminishes by 10 percent.

Niblock hopes the SFF will improve survival rates in the event of a cardiac arrest. Says Niblock, "Salem currently has a save rate of 37.5 percent for a witnessed sudden cardiac arrest - the Salem Fire Foundation wants to see that number climb above 65 percent."

In order to reach this save rate, the Salem Fire Foundation is focusing on three major outreach activities:

*Automatic External Defibrillators (AED's) - Installation in all marked Salem Police vehicles (60 AED's) and an additional 50 AED's are needed for targeted public access locations. Early defibrillation with a shock by a defibrillator is the most effective means of resuscitation from all types of sudden cardiac arrest.

*Community Wide Citizen CPR and AED Training Classes - Early bystander Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) training in conjunction with Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) activation can improve the chances of survival 2-3 fold. Hands only CPR and AED training classes are available the first and third Saturday of each month. Call 503-588-6245 to schedule your training now. Cost $15.00 per person.

*PulsePoint APP - The free PulsePoint smart phone app alerts CPR-trained bystanders, to a cardiac emergency in their immediate vicinity as well as mapping the closest Automated External Defibrillator (AED).

Niblock adds, "In order to accomplish these goals, community support is needed. This is important. It can't wait. Lives depend on it."

Milwaukie citizens to receive letter of commendation. (Media invited to attend.)

MILWAUKIE CITIZENS TO RECEIVE LETTER OF COMMENDATION. (MEDIA INVITED TO ATTEND.)


News Release from Milwaukie Police Dept.
Posted on FlashAlert: December 30th, 2014 9:52 AM
On 08-05-14, Kelsey Zionskowski was severely injured when she was struck by a vehicle while standing on the sidewalk on Mcloughlin Blvd near SE River Road.

On 01-06-15, the Milwaukie Police Department will be recognizing 5 citizens for their quick and compassionate actions during the incident. James Gustafsson, Lance Stewart, Hailey Manson, Patricia Malone, and Sally Hendron, all witnessed the incident and immediately took action to help Ms. Zionskowski. Each took an active role in caring for Ms. Zionskowski until emergency personnel arrived on scene.

This was an incredibly traumatic scene; even trained first responders were emotionally affected. Under these circumstances it would have been easy for a citizen to simply call 911 and then leave. However, these citizens put their own discomfort aside to help a fellow human being under extraordinary circumstances.

The ceremony will be held on 01-06-15, at 7:00 p.m., at Milwaukie City Hall during a City Council Meeting. The address to City Hall is 10722 SE Main Street, Milwaukie, Oregon, 97222.

Please contact the Milwaukie Police PIO if you will be attending.
