Tualatin Police will deliver prescriptions to Durham residents

The Tualatin Police Department wants our community members to know about prescription delivery services available to you.  During this time and importance of social distancing we understand many community members still have a need for critical medical prescriptions.  The pharmacies located in Tualatin all have their own delivery services whether it be Script Drop from Fred Meyer and Safeway, Walgreens Express Delivery at Walgreens or the independent courier service at Northwest Compounders Pharmacy.  Setting up delivery through your pharmacy will ensure you will still be able to obtain your needed medications.

We also want to let you know that Tualatin Police is ready to help if you are in need of a prescription and are not able to pick it up or have it delivered.   If you make payment arrangements with your pharmacy and they agree to release the medication to the police on your behalf they will go to your local pharmacy, pick up your prescription and deliver it to you.  You can contact The Tualatin Police Department at 503-691-4800 from 8:00AM-5:00PM Monday-Friday and a department member will facilitate the pickup and delivery of your prescription.
