Police Bureau Updates Council on Problem Solving Initiatives

August 01, 2006 00:00



On Wednesday, August 2, 2006, at 10:15 am, in the City Council Chambers, Portland Police Chief Rosanne M. Sizer and a host of community leaders will present a progress report on Community Oriented Policing Strategies to City Council. The Portland Police Bureau’s report details community policing activities funded through a special City Council appropriation last year and again this year.

The COP strategies were developed to address specific crime and livability problems in targeted communities. The Police Bureau, with several community partners and social service agencies, used traditional and non-traditional community policing approaches that combine community involvement and problem-oriented policing principles.

“I applaud the creativity that officers and community members brought to this effort,” said Chief Sizer. “It is important to me that we stay committed to building relationships with the communities in Portland and to focusing our resources in a coordinated way on problems that negatively impact neighborhood livability.”

Copies of the Community Oriented Policing Strategies report will be available at the Council session, or on the Police Bureau website at
