Mission Statement: "The mission of the Ontario Police Department is to create a safer Ontario by protecting our citizens, enforcing laws and building trust in partnership with our community. We strive to serve with integrity and professionalism while ensuring fair and impartial treatment for all."

 

The Ontario Police Department is located in City Hall at 444 SW 4th Street in Ontario, Oregon.  The police department provides services to the citizens of Ontario 24 hours a day, seven days a week. 
 

The Ordinance Control Division is comprised of Code Enforcement Officer Dallas Brockett and part-time Assistant Code Enforcement Officer Bil Carter.  The Ordinance Division handles dog issues, weeds, garbage, abandoned vehicles and building codes.  To submit an online code enforcement complaint, please click on the following link for the on line portal.

The Ontario 9-1-1 PSAP (Public Safety Answer Point) Center was consolidated to Malheur County July 1, 2014.  All 9-1-1 calls as well as non-emergency calls for service are answered at the Malheur County 9-1-1 PSAP and dispatched from that location to the appropriate responding agency.
 
The Police Support Specialist is currently a part-time position and works Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. with a half hour lunch break.  This position is currently responsible for police records which includes report distribution, uniform crime reporting, sex offender registration, vehicle and property releases, social media, as well as various data entry tasks.
 
Through the front desk at city hall, we issue authorization for parades, yard sales, bike registrations, and dog licensing.  We work with the Oregon Liquor Control Commission and their application process for business liquor licenses as well as alcohol permits and licenses for other events taking place in our community.  The police department also provides public services such as fingerprinting, child safety seat education, bicycle registration, crime prevention education and rape prevention education.
 
The Ontario Public Safety Citizens Board is a community group that meets once a month to discuss events happening in our community and to learn about the different tools used by our staff to enforce the laws and ordinances of Ontario. The community is always welcome to attend.  Check our calendar for dates and topics.
