November 3rd, 2013. That’s when Oregon City Police Officer Robert Libke was shot and killed while responding to a house fire on Linn Avenue.
Now his memory is being preserved with a new $16 million dollar headquarters.
Captain Sean Davis with the Oregon City Police Department explained the new buildings purpose as a state of the art facility and a beacon for the community for years to come.
The Oregon City police hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony last night to dedicate the new Robert Libke Public Safety building.
Officer Libke’s wife and daughter were in attendance – but due to Covid 19 restrictions the ceremony was aired on the city’s YouTube channel
