There's no call too small for the men and women of the Lake Oswego Police Department

SUBMITTED PHOTO: DAVE ARPIN - Representatives of the Lake Oswego Police Department and members of the Citys IT staff gathered Tuesday afternoon to celebrate the return of the Police Log to the pages of The Review. The LOPD transitioned to a new computerized dispatch system earlier this year that did not allow the department to create a daily record that included summary information about the calls made by officers. That quickly changed, though, after the City and The Review reached out to law enforcement agencies around the metro area that had dealt with similar issues and found a solution. Much of the credit goes to dispatch supervisors, the LOPDs Records Division and the Citys IT department; those who gathered Tuesday include (from left) Sgt. Earl Hall, Julia Warren, Mike Hogan, LOPD Chief Don Johnson, Derrick Berg, Wes Pay, Erika Roberts and Chief Technology Officer Chip Larouche.

5/9/18 9:57 a.m. ODOT reportedly told a concerned motorist not to worry about a loose grate in the roadway on Highway 43, but she wasn't convinced.

5/10/18 8:43 a.m. Uplands Elementary continues to be a hotbed of dog rage as angry neighbors confront owners who walk their pets on school grounds without a leash. In the morning, a man in his 50s reportedly became quite vulger before wrangling his pooch and heading toward Country Club Road.

5/10/18 3:38 p.m. A man in a green sedan reportedly stopped along Kruse Oaks Boulevard and told people that he was a CIA agent.

5/10/18 7:10 p.m. In the midst of a heated argument inside their van, a woman reportedly accelerated and then slammed on the brakes while her husband was switching seats — an obvious and deliberate attempt to make him fall, he told police.

5/10/18 7:58 p.m. When a resident of Galen Street arrived home and got out of her car, a deranged squirrel chased the frightened woman into her garage and then refused to leave. The menacing varmint hightailed it for Kingsgate Road when it heard the woman call police, but she asked for extra patrols in the area anyway because, well, there's just no telling who the squirrel might go after next.

5/11/18 10:17 a.m. Not to be outdone by the angry squirrel, a homeowner on Maple Circle asked for police help with an injured goose in her front yard that she said was being overly aggressive.

5/11/18 5:24 p.m. A homeowner on Indian Creek Drive has been putting cones in front of his house to keep people from parking there, but a caller told police that's causing traffic problems during pick-up and drop-off times at Lakeridge Junior High.

A few hours later, another man locked himself in the Shell gas station restroom down the street in what employees described as an ongoing issue. No arrests were reported in either bathroom break.

5/12/18 11:34 a.m. Two customers of a store at 3 Monroe Parkway got into a heated argument, with a woman claiming that a man had taken a picture of her 14-year-old daughter. He vehemently denied the accusation, but a passerby called police just in case.

5/12/18 1:49 p.m. The man claiming to be a CIA agent returned to the Mormon Temple on Kruse Oaks Boulevard, prompting another call to police from irritated church employees. The white man, who claimed to be investigating the church, was described as being in his 60s, wearing a red sweater and black pants.

5/12/18 8:13 p.m. When a neighbor complained about a noisy party on Second Street, one of the celebrants — a man in his 40s with a shaved head and plenty of tattoos — asked him not to call police because he had been to prison and had several oustanding warrants for his arrest. The neighbor, who was already concerned about hours of alcohol consumption and possible drug use, chose to ignore the request and summoned officers anyway.

5/14/18 4:37 a.m. A resident of Cascara Lane heard what sounded like a loud crashing sound inside her house and then thought she continued to hear more strange noises, so she called police. Officers quickly responded, only to find that all was OK.

5/14/18 9:01 a.m. Shortly after his neighbors moved away, a resident of Kilkenny Street discovered that his cat was missing. The brown-and-gray tabby would never leave voluntarily, the man said, leading him to believe that his former neighbors may have taken it with them.

5/15/18 11:56 a.m. Not only was a motorist changing his tire in a handicapped spot on South State Street, a caller told police, but the AAA tow truck sent to help him was parked in a handicapped spot, too.

5/15/18 12:15 p.m. A woman called police from her bedroom to report that her landlord was using cameras hidden all over her house to spy on her. She knows this, she said, because she just overheard a conversation in which the landlord talked about watching her sleep the night before.

5/15/18 2:37 p.m. An injured deer was reportedly running back and forth in traffic near the intersection of McNary and Jefferson parkways. The animal seemed to be getting around OK, a caller said, but it had almost caused multiple accidents.

5/15/18 5:19 p.m. Staff at the Mormon Temple on Kruse Oaks Drive tried for two hours to calm an "emotionally explosive" woman before calling police for help. The woman, who had driven to the temple and tried to go inside, was not stable enough to drive, a security officer said, and staff did not want to let her drive away.

5/15/18 5:41 p.m. Two young boys were reportedly playing on the railroad tracks near Boones Ferry and Pilkington roads, with no adults in sight.

5/16/18 8:03 a.m. A woman received a text message from someone who used a long-distance number to solicit sex. She didn't look at the embedded photo, the woman told police, but she still felt uncomfortable and wanted to talk with an officer about it.
