HILLSBORO, Ore- Washington County District Attorney Kevin Barton has launched a new campaign aimed at protecting area businesses from shoplifters. The district attorney's office has created shoplifting warning signs and is in the process of distributing these signs to area business owners free of charge.

DA Barton understands that area businesses already face a number of challenges and believes theft should not be among them. This office will prosecute shoplifters to the fullest extent of the law to send a clear message that this behavior is not tolerated in Washington County. 

If you'd like to request a sign, please email us.
