Welcome to the Port of Portland Police Department. We are law enforcement professionals, working together in an agency that values and fosters high ethical standards, technical proficiency and good police work.

Through all the challenges and changes to airport policing, one thing remains the same: our dedication to providing a safe, trouble-free airport environment for the traveling public and other airport visitors.

As we strive to update our skills, knowledge and abilities in response to national and international events, we will continue to keep our sights on the needs of the airport and the surrounding community.

Although most of our duties are related to Portland International Airport and the surrounding area, the department also participates in several community outreach efforts. We host tours of the police department for youth groups; our explosive detection K9 teams frequently conduct presentations and demonstrations for area schools, community groups and civic organizations; and our officers support various summer camp activities.

Please take some time to explore our Web pages and learn more about the department. Feel free to contact us if we can be of any service to you.

We hope you enjoy your time at Portland International Airport, gateway to the wonders of Oregon and Southwest Washington.

Phil Klahn
