Stacy Jepson Named Interim Beaverton Police Chief

BEAVERTON, Ore. – Stacy Jepson has been named as the city’s Interim Police Chief. She will begin her assignment effective Jun. 6, 2022. 

Chief Jepson comes to the city by way of the Eugene Police Department where she has served as their Deputy Chief since April 2019. Before that, she spent 21 years serving the Hillsboro Police Department holding the ranks of police officer, detective, sergeant, lieutenant, and commander of the patrol division. 

“With more than 26 years of policing experience, including exceptional leadership within our surrounding communities, we are fortunate to have such a qualified leader joining the city,” said City Manager Jenny Haruyama. “I have every confidence that Chief Jepson’s experience within the region and knowledge of our area will greatly benefit staff and our community.” 

Chief Jepson has a strong background in working at the regional level and developing strong relationships with community stakeholders, including leading the regional Tri-Met transit police team for several years. 

She is committed to the principles of 21st Century Policing and has been a long practitioner of transparency, constitutional policing, police legitimacy and procedural justice. She has devoted most of her career to being a leader and champion of Police Officer wellness and Critical Incident education and post care. 

Chief Jepson is a member of both the International Association of Chiefs of Police and the Oregon Association of Chiefs of Police. She is a graduate of the FBI’s 450th Executive Leadership Institute, the Oregon Executive Development Course, The West-Point Leadership Exchange, and currently holds an Executive Police Certification with the Department of Public Safety Standards & Training. 

Chief Jepson currently lives in Washington County where she is raising her three sons, with her wife, Megan. 

“It is an absolute honor and unique responsibility to serve as the Interim Chief of Police for the City of Beaverton,” said Chief Stacy Jepson. “I have spent much of my career policing in this area and working closely with the Beaverton Police Department. They are amongst the finest law enforcement professionals and I couldn’t be more excited to have this opportunity to serve as their next chief. I look forward to joining the city’s leadership team and learning how to best serve the needs of the city, the police department, and the entire Beaverton community.” 

Earlier this year, Beaverton Police Chief Ronda Groshong announced her retirement, effective May 2, 2022. Efforts are currently underway to assess long-term recruitment approaches. 

The Beaverton Police Department has a $39 million budget and supports nearly 200 employees. The department logs roughly 90,000 annual calls for service.
