Officer Christopher Kilcullen

28 04 2011

The Eugene Police Dept. hired Chris Kilcullen as a police officer in March 1998. During his 12-year career with EPD, Officer Kilcullen received more than 85 commendations. Those commendations repeatedly cited Officer Kilcullen’s exemplary professional demeanor and positive interactions with the public he served, even in the most stressful circumstances.

Chris Kilcullen was appointed to the EPD Rapid Deployment Unit in 2003 and earned an Advanced Certificate as a Certified Police Officer in 2004. In May 2004 and again in June 2008, he was awarded EPD Employee of the month for having the highest activity level of any EPD patrol officer, based on the number of investigations, arrests, traffic citations and field interviews officers complete.

Officer Kilcullen served in the Special Operations, Traffic Enforcement Unit since 2005. He was a long time member of the EPD Negotiation Team from 2002 to 2011 and in 2008, he joined the Crisis Intervention Team and is credited with saving many lives as a member of that team.

Officer Kilcullen had a Bachelor of Arts in sociology and psychology. Before joining the EPD, he worked in youth social services, was a radio disc jockey, and worked as a recreation activity leader.
