Police Bureau begins Ten Day Spring Break Mission

March 18, 2005 00:00

  

POLICE BUREAU BEGINS TEN DAYS OF ENHANCED PATROLS DURING SPRING BREAK

Tonight begins a ten-day enhanced patrol mission designed to provide a positive and safe environment for juveniles during spring break and improve neighborhood livability by minimizing juvenile-related crime. During the mission, the Police Bureau's five precincts, School Police Division, Drugs and Vice Division, Traffic Division, and the Transit Police Division will participate in 17 curfew missions, two alcohol-related missions, seven transit area enhanced patrol missions, and seven traffic missions.

Officers will concentrate on areas where juvenile consistently congregate or where there have been on-going problems with speed racing, vandalism, and property crime. Many of the officers involved in these missions have volunteered to adjust their shifts in an effort to minimize costs and provide enhanced police service to the residents of Portland.

The Police Bureau wishes to remind parents that several organizations including Portland's Parks and Recreation, Youth Gang Outreach, Police Activities League, and the Boys and Girls Clubs offer safe alternatives to kids during Spring Break.
