Crime in the neighborhood

At least five PKW residents had items stolen from their front porch the night of May 13, 2015.  The stolen property ranged from flower pots to outdoor furniture.

While crime is relatively rare in our neighborhood, it is important that it is reported to the authorities as soon as possible.

Peterkort Woods is located in unincorporated Washington County.  Your police services are supplied by the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.  The WCSO divides its patrol area into 14 districts.  PKW is located in the 20 District.  It is also located within the Enhanced Sheriffs Patrol Districts (ESPD).

Staffing in these districts is determined in part by the number of reported crimes and calls for service in each district.

If you see a crime occurring, call 911.  If you need police or fire anywhere in Washington County and it is not an emergency, call 503-629-0111.
