    BRG HistoryThe Beaverton Resource Guide (BRG) is a free monthly community paper written, edited and published in Beaverton, by Beaverton residents and for the businesses and people of Beaverton, Oregon, USA. Cedar House Media published the rst edition in April of 2011 featuring local businesses, community news, and the Farmers Market. That rst issue was 16 pages. Today, the paper is 32 pages and sponsored by a diverse cross section of public and private community organizations.

    BRG GoalsBeaverton has so many positive attributes and many go unnoticed. The BRG is our way of giving back to the community by highlighting what makes our city a great place to live, work and shop. With a focus on small, local businesses, wed like to encourage our neighbors to rst visit nearby stores and give them a chance before moving on to businesses outside our community.

    BRG AdvertisingWith our unique layout, colorful design and exclusive community content, our readers are beyond loyal. Not only do they want to know "What's Happening in Beaverton This Month" but they also agree with our philosophy of: "Shop Local - Give Local - Stay Local."

Our papers are located in convenient and high trafc locations ready to be picked up by those who love Beaverton. With low rates, targeted distribution and a willingness to provide more value than what you pay for, you'll nd that we're just as interested in stretching your advertising dollar as you are!

    Message from the ChiefCitizens Academy

    In 1993 the Beaverton Police 'HSDUWPHQW LPSOHPHQWHG LWV UVWCitizens Academy. The Academy was designed to increase under-standing between the Department and its community through educa-tion and interaction. This has been accomplished by acquainting citi-zens, through a 12 week free class, with law enforcement, the commu-nitys role in the criminal justice system and providing increased

    understanding of the tasks police RIFHUVIDFHLQWKHLUGDLO\ZRUN

    We feel that with better under-standing, it becomes easier for SROLFHDQGFLWL]HQVWRQGUHDOLVWLFsolutions to neighborhood prob-lems related to crime, fear of crime and neighborhood decay.

    Currently, in its 47th session, the Beaverton Police Department Citizens Academy is one of the many ways in which we are striv-ing to develop a sense of coopera-tion to achieve our goal to provide a safe and security community for all Beaverton citizens.

    If you are interested in applying for the next Citizens Academy, or would like additional information, please visit our website at www.beavertonpolice.org or contact 2IFHU'D1HVKLD%DUNOH\DW WRREWDLQDQDSSOLFDWLRQ
