TRIMET OFFICERS ARREST MORE THAN 130 IN SWEEP OF DOWNTOWN BUS MALL

On eight separate occasions since June 30, 2005, officers from the Portland Police Bureau’s Transit Police Division have been conducting livability missions in the Downtown Bus Mall. Since beginning the missions, officers have made more than 130 arrests, including arrests for Possession and Distribution of a Controlled Substance and numerous arrest warrants. Officers have also excluded 47 people from either the Drug Free Zone or the TriMet system during the missions.

Since beginning the mission, several individuals and businesses have told officers that they have seen a marked improvement in the area and an overall reduction in the fear of crime.

Multnomah County Parole and Probation has been assisting the Police Bureau with this mission, which will continue through the summer.
