In order to assist Forest Grove’s more vulnerable population, and in support of Governor Kate Brown’s most recent Executive Order regarding social distancing, the Forest Grove Police Department will begin offering a prescription pick-up and delivery service.

Effective March 25, 2020 the Forest Grove Police Department will pick up life preserving prescription medication and deliver to private residences within Forest Grove from either the Bi-Mart, Safeway or Cornelius Walgreens, Cornelius Fred Meyer and the Cornelius Virginia Garcia Wellness Center pharmacies. Cornelius Walmart Pharmacy is available by mail.pharmacies. This program will be effective for the duration of the governor’s executive order, currently set to expire on April 28, 2020.

In order to participate, a resident of Forest Grove would be required to contact the Police Department between the hours of 8am to 4pm Monday through Friday at 503-992-3260. A participating resident will be asked to provide their name, address, phone number, date of birth, the prescription being requested and the name of the pharmacy. Further, the resident must complete the following prior to contacting the Police Department:

Contact the Pharmacy and order the prescription.

Pre-pay for the prescription over the phone.

Advise the pharmacy that the Forest Grove Police Department will be picking up the prescription.

Have a valid identification available when the officer arrives at your residence.

In order for the Police Department to effectively administer this program we are asking that only those who are known to be vulnerable to the effects of Covid-19, by being over 65 years of age and having a life threatening pre-existing medical condition, utilize it. Staff will always be in approved Forest Grove Police Department attire with identification, will utilize personal protective equipment and maintain social distancing for all deliveries.

The men and women of the Forest Grove Police Department want the citizens of Forest Grove to know that we are here throughout this crisis and will continue to strive to provide the best service we can.
