The Police Department works with the community to prevent and suppress crime, serve people sincerely and professionally, build valued partnerships, and honor justice through fairness. To actively and effectively serve the community, we adhere to principles of integrity, loyalty, and a progressive spirit.
It’s my pleasure to welcome you to the City of Hillsboro Police Department’s website. Take a look around, explore, and learn more about your police department and its operations.
Since our founding in 1876, we’ve grown from a single town marshal to a full-service police department committed to all of the aspects contributing to safe and equitable public safety in Hillsboro. Each member of this department, from nearly 200 full-time employees to over 150 community-based volunteers, shares a common sense of professionalism and dedicated service to our community.
We’re committed to working with our community in partnership. It’s not a one-size-fits-all approach to community policing; we’re looking at all facets of the diversity of Hillsboro and developing our outreach approach to be inclusive of all community members. Through this approach, our goal is to build bridges between our department and historically underserved and underrepresented populations within our community.
We welcome open dialogue with all members of our community. We don't just serve the community; we're part of the community. Our community is growing, and so is our police department. With this growth comes change and increasing diversity, and we are committed to building a workforce reflective of our community and its ever-developing needs.
We hope you find what you’re looking for about our department here, but, if you don’t, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
