Chief's Message

Chief of Police Kent Barker

Welcome to the Tualatin Police Department web page. This page provides general information about our team at the Tualatin Police Department.  It is my hope that the information we provide will help you become more familiar with how our department operates and the services we can provide.

The men and women of the Tualatin Police department are dedicated to the safety of our community and excellence in customer service.  Our team consists of 38 sworn officers and an additional 8.5 professional staff members providing excellent support to the department.  In addition to our paid staff, our team is supplemented by dedicated volunteers who volunteer their own time in the capacity of reserve officers, office assistants, and chaplains.

Our team would not be complete without the support from our community.  Members of our community have generously supported our efforts to keep the City of Tualatin a safe place to live and work.  As we continue to work together and develop future partnerships, we will continue to be successful with our fight against crime.

As the Chief of Police, I will continue to listen to the needs of our community, evaluate crime trends, and respond in the most efficient and effective manner possible with our available resources.  I am always open to new and innovative ideas to improve police services.  If you have any comments or ideas you would like to share with our team, please feel free to call me or email me at the office.  My office number is 503-691-4800 or you can email me at


Kent W. Barker,

Chief of Police
