The Clackamas County Peace Officers Benevolent Foundation and the Gladstone Baskin & Robbin’s Ice Cream Shop are partnering to raise funds for the Foundation’s 9th Annual Shop with a Cop event. Every $100 raised means one more kid can Shop with a Cop! in December.

Throughout the month of October on every Tuesday from 5:00 pm to 10:00 pm there will be at least one Police Officer or Deputy Sheriff scooping ice cream for customers. The price of the ice cream will be discounted during these hours.
Donation buckets will be available in the store throughout the month of October.
The Baskin & Robbins is located at 19510 SE McLoughlin Blvd, Gladstone, Oregon.
Stop in on a Tuesday during the hours above and get some special service for a great ice cream treat from Baskin & Robbins and watch some Cops Running Cone!
The concept of a Clackamas County Law Enforcement Memorial, to honor those Clackamas County Peace Officers killed in the line of duty, started in 2004 with the completion and dedication of four metal memorial benches, which are currently located at the Sheriff’s Office North Station.
The Memorial will be located in the front plaza area of the Sheriff’s Office Brook’s Building. It will feature a back-drop of iconic Mt. Hood, a landmark which is seen from all parts of Clackamas County.
The Clackamas County Peace Officers Benevolent Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit, began fund raising under the mission “To educate the public about the work and profession of law enforcement.”
Two bronze sculptures were commissioned from artist Rip Caswell in Troutdale. The first depicts a police duty belt and hat. The second is a full size sculpture of a police working dog. A total of $55,000 was raised and spent on these quality art pieces which will be an integral part of the memorial.
LRS Architects have donated their services to draw up the plans for the memorial. Their total donation to this project is estimated at $15,000.
P&C Construction has donated their services to create the Budget Estimate and will oversee the construction of the project. Their total donation to building the memorial is estimated at $20,800.
Construction can begin as soon as the estimated cost of $120,000 is raised.
At present (May 11, 2015), $44,000 has been raised. $76,000 is still needed.
Tentative completion date is May 15, 2016, National Law Enforcement Memorial Day which is during National Police Week..
Seven names will be on the memorial; all died in the line of duty:
Police Officer George J. Hanlon, Oregon City Police Department, April 23, 1906.
Sheriff John R. Shaver, Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office, April 30, 1906.
Sergeant James H. Worrell, Milwaukie, Police Department, December 31, 1953.
Deputy Sheriff Jimmy L. Shoop, Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office, November 7, 1981.
Deputy Sheriff William D. Bowman, Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office, September 12, 2000.
Chief Daniel K. Duncan, Lake Oswego Police Department, May 20, 2010.
Reserve Police Officer Robert A. Libke, Oregon City Police Department, November 4, 2013.
One police working dog was also killed in the line of duty and may be included on the memorial.
Donors of $10,000 or above will be engraved as patrons for the Clackamas County Law Enforcement Memorial. At present, there have been three donors in this category: Bill & Dolores Call; Clackamas Federal Credit Union; and General Growth Properties.
All donations are to be made to the CCPOBF with LE Memorial in the memo line. Donations to the CCPOBF are tax deductible and a receipt will be given to donors promptly. The CCPOBF is not deducting any administrative fees, so 100% of donations will go to this project.
