The Independence Police Department recently entered a Memorandum of Understanding contract with Oregon State University to assist with law enforcement services during home football games. OSU covers all the costs associated with our officers, and only those not scheduled to work in Independence can participate. Moreover, our officers gain experience in crowd management applicable to the exciting events we see in Independence.

Our team, along with Polk County Sheriff’s deputies, had a blast keeping the Dam safe and look forward to continuing this partnership.
