Oregon Public Safety Academy Hosts Take Our Kids to Work Day (Photo) - 04/27/17

The Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST) hosted a number of activities at the Oregon Public Safety Academy in Salem today as part of a national event, Take Our Kids to Work Day.

More than four dozen boys and girls participated in today's events at the Academy. The children were of family members and friends employed at the Academy in a variety of roles including public safety trainers, police officers, firefighters, regulatory specialists, and trades such as electricians, plumbers, food services, etc.

The day's activities began with a "roll call" during which all of the children were given a "briefing" on an "investigation" they were going to be assigned to assist with. The investigation would provide clues at each location which would eventually allow them to close their case. The clues would bring the children to various locations within the agency so they can see the various careers that exist at the Academy. Participants also visited the Academy fire station where they helped extinguish a simulated car fire and at the end of the day were able to meet Trooper Jeff Frietag of the Oregon State Police and his K-9 drug detection partner Keno.

DPSST Director Eriks Gabliks said "the goal of our event is two-fold. First, to give the children of our staff the opportunity to find out more about what their parents do. Second, to get boys and girls thinking about what type of careers they might be interested in when they grow up. Waiting until they are out of high school is too late. The motto of our day is that any boy or girl can do any career they want when they grow up."

Background on Take Our Kids to Work Day from Wikipedia - Take Our Daughters To Work Day was created in New York in the summer of 1992 by the Ms. Foundation for Women. The first celebration took place on Thursday, April 22, 1993 and has since been celebrated on the 4th Thursday of April every year in order for the 37 million children, parents, schools in over 3.5 million workplaces across the country, in addition to participants in over 200 countries around the world, to plan ahead for the annual event. The day has generally been scheduled on a day that is a school day for most children in the United States, and schools are provided with literature and encouraged to promote the program. Educators are provided with materials for incorporating career exploration into school curricula on the day before or after the event. The program was officially expanded in 2003 to include boys; however, most companies that participated in the program had, since the beginning, allowed b oth boys and girls to participate, usually renaming it "Take Our Children to Work Day" or an equivalent. The program's official website states that the program was changed in order to provide both boys and girls with opportunities to explore careers at an age when they are more flexible in terms of gender roles. The Ms. Foundation also states that men who have hosted children have benefited from being seen as parental figures in addition to their roles as professionals, which can contribute to combating gender stereotypes as well.

Oregon Fallen Law Enforcement Officers' Memorial, May 2 at 1 pm (Photo) - 04/17/17

The Oregon Fallen Law Enforcement Officers' Memorial Ceremony is a significant event that the Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST) is proud to host each year in partnership with Oregon C.O.P.S. and Oregon's various statewide law enforcement associations.

The State's fallen law enforcement officer memorial ceremony will be held on Tuesday, May 2, 2017 at 1 PM at the Oregon Public Safety Academy in Salem. We ask that you please place this important date on your calendars and attend this event which honors our fallen.

The memorial honors 183 fallen Oregon law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty since the 1880s. This includes officers from city, county, state, tribal and federal law enforcement agencies who have served as law enforcement officers, corrections officers, and parole and probation officers.

The Oregon Board on Public Safety Standards and Training (BPSST) approved the addition of one officer's name during the 2017 ceremony. It is the goal of the Board to honor and remember the sacrifices of all of Oregon's fallen officers and the families they left behind. Below is information on the officer being added.

Sergeant Jason Goodding of the Seaside Police Department will be honored during this year's state ceremony. His name was recently etched into the Memorial under the watchful eye of law enforcement honor guard members.

Sgt. Goodding was 39 years of age and on patrol with the Seaside Police Department when he was shot and killed on Friday, February 5, 2016, at approximately 9:20 pm in the 300 block of Broadway while taking 55-year-old Phillip Ferry into custody on a warrant tied to an earlier assault on a police officer. Authorities said Ferry fired one shot at Goodding, a 13-year Seaside police veteran. Another officer with Goodding returned fire. Goodding died later Friday at a Clatsop County hospital.

Sgt. Gooding, a thirteen-year veteran of the Seaside Police Department, is survived by his wife and two daughters.

The Governor's Law Enforcement Medal of Ultimate Sacrifice was presented to Sgt. Goodding's family by Governor Kate Brown during the memorial ceremony on February 12, 2016.

Seaside Police Sergeant Jason Goodding (DPSST# 43017) is the 183rd Oregon law enforcement officer to has died in the line of duty since the first was recorded in the 1880s.

We hope that your schedule will allow you to join us on this special day. If you have any questions, or need additional assistance, please let us know.
