COVID19 and GOVERNOR'S RESPONSE:  Update as of February 2021

  • POLICE CLERICAL-RECORDS:  The police department’s main office is open for business, Monday - Friday, from 8AM to 5PM. However, the lobby is closed for access but citizens can speak to the staff with a telephone just outside the lobby door. The public can also call the main number (360)834-4151 Monday through Friday, during normal business hours. The public can also send emails to: police@cityofcamas.us 
  • OFFENDER WORK CREW: The Camas Offender Work Crew program (fieldwork) will resume operations as of March 9, 2021.
  • CODE ENFORCEMENT:  The Code Enforcement Officer is working normal hours, Monday - Friday, 8AM to 5PM.
  • TRAINING:  All non-essential travel and training will be canceled, with certain exceptions made by the Chief of Police.
  • COMMUNITY ROOM:  The Police Department’s community room is closed to the public. No new reservations are being taken until further notice.
  • POLICE RESPONSE:  The Camas Police Department is still responding to all calls for service and will continue to respond in-person to calls where there are life safety issues or if the call for service cannot be handled over the telephone. Public safety is of critical importance and every effort will be made to ensure a swift police response where necessary. When possible, for non-emergency requests, officers may be contacting members of the public or doing follow-up by telephone. When officers do make person-to-person contacts, they will attempt to employ social distancing techniques. All criminal investigations will continue.
  • While we do not have a telephone reporting system, citizens can work with officers over the telephone to file a variety of police reports rather than reporting the incident in person.
    • Citizens may still call 311 and ask to speak with a Camas Police Officer if they need to file a police report. 
      This should only be used for NON-EMERGENCY situations.
    • The 911 number should be used for all other purposes.
    • We are suspending all civilian ride-a-longs.
    • Officers will be advised to limit non-essential contacts with members of the public.
    • Most police attendance at public events will also be canceled and rescheduled for a later date once the social distancing recommendations by the CDC are lifted.
    • We are also planning for the possibility that our staffing may be impacted if our personnel become ill. We plan to keep patrol functions as a top priority should this occur.
    • We are also increasing the cleaning and sanitization of our workspaces, vehicles, and other equipment.
