On October 11, 2001, the District Council of Trade Unions (DTCU) informed the City of Portland of its intent to strike on October 22, 2001. In the event that the strike does occur, some services will not be available. However, it is important to emphasize that the strike will not affect Police Officers, Detectives, or the Bureau of Emergency Communication (9-1-1 dispatch).

Among the services impacted by the strike:

* Precincts will be closed to the public. * Information and Referral will be closed and the telephone lines will not be answered. * Crime victim photography services will be reduced. * Requests for police records, including police reports will be significantly delayed. * Release of towed or impounded vehicles will be delayed. * The Property Room will be closed to the public, and release of property to the public will not be available. * Prisoner booking will be delayed, which may cause temporary jail closures. This is because DTCU represented employees, who currently assist in prisoner processing, will be on strike.

Portland Police Bureau Chief Mark A. Kroeker would like to assure Portland’s citizens that the Portland Police Bureau will continue to respond to all calls for services.
