Oregon Public Safety Academy hosts "I Am Not Invisible" display recognizing veterans (Photo) - 04/16/19

In cooperation with the Oregon Department of Veterans’ Affairs, the Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST) is honored to recognize our women veterans across the State by featuring the “I Am Not Invisible” exhibit at the Oregon Public Safety Academy in Salem.  While there are over 28,000 women veterans throughout the State, there are still barriers in the services and recognition that their male counterparts often receive.  The “I Am Not Invisible” exhibit spotlights the many faces of this diverse and important segment of the Oregon veteran community while increasing awareness and dialogue about women veterans. 

A walk through the exhibit will open your eyes to the myriad of contributions, needs and experiences of women who have served in the military.  We invite you to take the time to visit the 20 portraits of Oregon women military veterans and read about their contributions. The exhibit will be on display in our main lobby through April 22nd.

DPSST's Director Eriks Gabliks said "we know that thousands of our state's city, county, state, and tribal public safety professionals have worn the uniform of our nation's armed services and are now continuing to serve by wearing the uniform of a law enforcement officer, firefighter, private security professional, or perhaps a non-certified position who collectively are helping to ensure our communities and residents are safe.  We are honored to host this display at the Academy to showcase the service of Oregon women who have served."

Day 1 Oregon Law Enforcement Career Fair
Day 1 Oregon Law Enforcement Career Fair
Wanted: 500 Men and Women for Law Enforcement Careers (Photo) - 04/05/19

The 2019 Oregon Law Enforcement Career Fair opened with great success with more than 500 individuals in attendance in the first two hours.

The Oregon Law Enforcement Career Fair is being held at the Oregon Public Safety Academy at 4190 Aumsville Highway SE (just off Interstate 5 and Highway 22) in Salem this Friday, April 5, 2019 and Saturday, April 6, 2019 on both days from 10 am to 2 pm.  More than three dozen agencies are in attendance from agencies around the state.

The career fair is held through a partnership between the Oregon Association of Chief of Police, Oregon State Sheriff’s Association, Oregon Peace Officers Association, the Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST) and Oregon's 208 law enforcement agencies.

DPSST Director Eriks Gabliks said "across Oregon, city, county, state, tribal and federal law enforcement agencies are looking to hire men and women from diverse backgrounds who are problem solvers interested in engaging with community members to help make communities safe.  With baby boomers retiring, there are more than 200 vacancies today and another 300 planned over the next six months as more than 1,000 currently employed police, corrections and parole and probation officers and 9-1-1 operators around Oregon reach retirement age.”

Gabliks said “we are very pleased with the turnout and interest of attendees.  The career fair allows interested applicants, and their friends and family members, to meet representatives from various agencies and find out about the various career opportunities available that range from police, corrections and parole and probation officers; 9-1-1 operators; lab and evidence technicians; crime analysts; forensic chemists; nurses; and many others.  Specialties such as K-9, explosives technicians, marine patrol, tactical, and motor patrol are also on hand to answer questions and display their equipment.”

Those who cannot attend the career fair in person can access a statewide law enforcement careers webpage OregonPoliceJobs.com  

Gabliks said “The OregonPoliceJobs.com webpage is an amazing tool that will help get the word out on what law enforcement positions both sworn and technical that are available around the state at a centralized location"

Engraving Day Oregon Fallen Officer Memorial 2019
Engraving Day Oregon Fallen Officer Memorial 2019
Engraving Day held at Oregon's Fallen Law Enforcement Officers Memorial (Photo) - 04/03/19

The families of fallen officers whose names will be honored at the State's Fallen Officer Memorial ceremony later this year gathered at the Oregon Public Safety Academy in Salem to watch the names of their loved ones etched into the State's memorial.

This afternoon's event was held in partnership with the Oregon Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.), Oregon Fallen Badge Foundation and the Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST).

The City of Bend Police Department Honor Guard stood watch as the names of four officers were carefully added to the memorial. 

The Oregon Fallen Officer Memorial is scheduled for s://6">Tuesday, May 7 at 1:00 pm at the Oregon Public Safety Academy at 4190 Aumsville Highway in Salem.

DPSST Director Eriks Gabliks said "The names of four fallen officers were approved by the Board on Public Safety Standards and Training for addition to the state memorial. The memorial honors all of the state's fallen city, county, state, tribal and federal officers.  During this year's ceremony the names of four of Oregon's fallen will be added to a memorial that already has too many.  Ashland Police Officer Malcus Williams, Bend Police Sgt. John Lawrence, and two Multnomah County Sheriff’s Deputies (Deputy Irving Burkett and Deputy Robert Ray “Bobby” Anderson) who were seriously injured in the line of duty and retired as a result of their injuries will be honored in May along with 183 fallen Oregon law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty since the 1880s." The Multnomah County additions are being added under the historic recognition process which allows fallen officers from previous years to be honored on the memorial after careful review and approval.  Gabliks said "The State's memorial, and the annual ceremony, allows us to honor the fallen and the families and co-workers left behind."

Background on the names being added to the Oregon Fallen Law Enforcement Officer Memorial

On Friday March 2, 2018 at approximately 7:25 p.m. Officer Malcus Williams suffered a major medical event while on duty and on the scene of a call. Other officers who were on scene rendered aid and summoned expedited medical assistance from Ashland Fire and Rescue. Paramedics arrived on scene and transported Officer Williams to Providence Hospital where the emergency department staff continued to work on him. Officer Williams passed away at approximately 9:00 p.m. Officer Williams is survived by his wife, Ona, and three daughters, Savannah, Georgia and Brooklyn, as well as his sisters Cindy and Amy, who is also a member of the Ashland Police Department. Officer Williams started his career with the Ashland Police Department on December 9, 1996. 

On Thursday, December 4, 2014, Sergeant John Lawrence of the City of Bend Police Department suffered a fatal heart attack following his shift in which he responded to a bank holdup alarm.  He returned home after completing his shift but collapsed three hours later. He was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.  Sergeant Lawrence had served with the Bend Police Department for 10 years and had previously served with the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office for 4-1/2 years.  The Public Safety Officers’ Benefits Office, under the United States Department of Justice, determined that Sgt. Lawrence’s death was in the line of duty under the PSOB Act 42 United States Code 3796 as the heart attack occurred 24 hours after engaging in an on-duty situation.

On March 5, 1969, Deputy Robert Ray “Bobby” Anderson of the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office was shot by a suspect in his custody.  Deputy Anderson and his partner were transporting a person in crisis to the hospital when the person lunged over the seat in the patrol car and took control of Anderson’s partner’s service weapon.  The suspect shot both deputies and a civilian who was also in the vehicle accompanying the deputies.  Both deputies were hospitalized in critical condition.  Deputy Anderson was paralyzed as a result of the shooting and his health deteriorated until his death on December 1, 1994. Deputy Anderson was 49 years of age and served with the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office for six years.

On July 25, 1982, Deputy Sheriff Irving Burkett of the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office was shot during a jailbreak attempt from the Rocky Butte Jail. Deputy Burkett was shot by an inmate with a .22 sing-action handgun in the right side of his head. Inmates began the break out at approximately 10:15 pm.  The inmates had a gun inside the jail and through a series of hostages made their way to the control center section of the jail.  Deputy Burkett heroically attempted to alert the rest of the jail that there was an escape in progress and was shot.  Six individuals were sentenced to 25 years in prison after pleading guilty to four felonies. Deputy Burkett was severely and permanently debilitated as a direct result of injuries sustained in the shooting. Deputy Burkett died from his injuries on August 22, 2003.  At the time of the incident Deputy Burkett was 63 years of age and had served with the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office for 14 years.

# # #

The State memorial currently 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 recent line of duty death of Ashland Police Officer Malcus Williams, whose name will also be added during the 2019 ceremony, and the addition of Bend Police Sgt. John Lawrence, Multnomah County Sheriff's Deputy Irving Lawrence Burkett and Deputy Robert “Bobby” Anderson, sadly will raise the number of officers honored on the state memorial to 187.

The Oregon Law Enforcement Memorial Fund raised funds to build the state memorial more than 20 years ago and hosts the annual ceremony.  For more information on the Oregon Law Enforcement Memorial Fund and the statewide license plate that is available to honor fallen law enforcement officers and firefighters please visit

The Oregon Association of Chief of Police, Oregon State Sheriff’s Association, Oregon Peace Officers Association, and the Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST) are pleased to host the Oregon Law Enforcement Career Fair at the Oregon Public Safety Academy at 4190 Aumsville Highway SE in Salem this Friday, April 5, 2019  and Saturday, April 6, 2019.  Both days will run from 10 am to 2 pm and more than three dozen agencies will be in attendance.

DPSST Director Eriks Gabliks said "across Oregon, city, county, state, tribal and federal law enforcement agencies are looking to hire men and women from diverse backgrounds who are problem solvers interested in engaging with community members to help make communities safe.  With baby boomers retiring, there are more than 200 vacancies today and another 300 planned over the next six months as more than 1,000 currently employed police, corrections and parole and probation officers and 9-1-1 operators around Oregon reach retirement age.”

Gabliks said “The event will run from 10 am to 2 pm on both days and will not only allow interested applicants (friends and family members) to meet representatives from dozens of law enforcement agencies but also find out about the various career opportunities available that range from police, corrections and parole and probation officers; 9-1-1 operators; lab and evidence technicians; crime analysts; forensic chemists; nurses; and many others.  Specialties such as K-9, explosives technicians, marine patrol, tactical, and motor patrol will also be on hand to answer questions and display their equipment.”

Both days of the two-day event will allow applicants, friends and family members interested in career opportunities to hear first-hand from those currently working in the field what to expect, what a day is like, what challenges and rewards they have experienced, what they wished they would have known when they applied, etc.

A new statewide law enforcement careers webpage is a great tool for interested applicants, OregonPoliceJobs.com Gabliks said “This is a new webpage that is an amazing tool that will help get the word out on what is available around the state at a centralized location"
