Press release date: Mon Jan 25th, 2010
WEST LINN - The West Linn Police Department will host an open house at their facility Tuesday evening, January 26, 2009 from 5:00pm until 8:00pm. The station is located at 22825 Willamette Drive in West Linn. This is an opportunity for residents to tour the current facility and meet the officers.
The West Linn Police Department is in the old City Hall Building built in the 1930's. Originally the second floor was the City Hall, and the first floor contained a Post Office, grocery store and meat market. Over the years, as the city grew they took over more of the building. When the new City Hall was built on Salamo Road the West Linn Police took over the entire building.
The City only owns the "footprint" of the building, however, all the parking is on Mill property. The current building lacks many of the modern amenities of a police station including lack of emergency power, showers, and adequate evidence processing areas.
The City of West Linn is in the process of designing a new facility to meet current and future needs.
