Black Butte Police Department Installs Drug Drop Off Unit
The Black Butte Ranch Police Department has recently installed a drug drop-off box.

The Black Butte Ranch Police department completed the grant application in early May and received our box last week.
Homeowners are encouraged to drop off excess and unwanted prescriptions, including over-the-counter medications.
Items that will be accepted include:

Special Olympics Law Enforcement Torch Run Fund Raiser $1,000 Goal
The 30th Annual Oregon Law Enforcement Torch Run is fast approaching! This year the Oregon Law Enforcement Torch Run has expanded many of the routes and will be covering over 600 miles around the state.
The Law Enforcement agencies in Central Oregon have collaborated to conduct a Law Enforcement Torch Run the Special Olympics in our area! In the last two years we have had about 50 runners participate in the Central Oregon leg.
Black Butte Ranch PD has been the lead agency in the coordination of this run locally. Although several of us have participated in the run we have not done a good job of fundraising. This year, to raise money and help us celebrate 30 years of the Oregon Law Enforcement Torch Run we are setting a goal of raising $1,000 for the Central Oregon Law Enforcement officers, family members and Special Olympians running in the Central Oregon Law Enforcement Torch Run.
Again this year Officer Kelvin Lettenmaier, Officer Steve Vuylsteke and I will be joining our fellow runners in carrying the torch for this cause.
Donations can be made directly to the Black Butte Ranch Police Department
