The Oregon City Council recognized police officer Tad Dominski on Aug. 14 for his fast action during a July traffic stop.
On July 31, what started as a routine traffic stop became a more serious matter for the officer.
Oregon Police Chief Darin DeHaan said Dominski had stopped a 23-year-old man for a traffic violations but soon became suspicious because his passenger was a 15-year-old girl from Freeport.
He contacted the girl’s parents and learned that they did not want her to be with the man. Her father came to Oregon and picked her up.
