Chief Derrick Foxworth said, “I look at the open houses as mini public safety fairs, where police can provide important information, while also discussing crime and neighborhood livability concerns with people who live in that precinct. I'm hopeful that Portlanders will take some time out on a sunny summer day to come by and say hello.” He hopes open houses will become and annual tradition.
Over the last year, Portland Police Precincts have implemented outreach efforts aimed at crime prevention and building relationships with the community. Through special missions targeting crime by neighborhood, to providing information in writing to citizens, to knocking on doors to talk with people about what is happening on their street, the Police Bureau and the community have noted the reduction of reported crime in some cases.
Below is a list of the open house schedule.
