Mike Crebs Assumes Command of East Precinct

August 05, 2005 00:00


On August 25, 2005, 46-year-old Michael A. Crebs will assume command of the Portland Police Bureau’s East Precinct. Commander Crebs, a 13-year veteran of the Portland Police Bureau, is currently the Commander of the Transit Police Division. He’s a former captain of the School Police Division as well as the Training Division where he helped shepherd the Police Bureau through the Taser pilot program and implemented the first Citizens Police Academy in more than 4 years.

Prior to joining the Police Bureau, Commander Crebs had eleven years of law enforcement experience with the Mid-Valley Police Department and the Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Office in Utah. Commander Crebs chose to continue his career in Portland after a nationwide search of law enforcement organizations. He stated that he chose the Portland Police Bureau because of its strong commitment to Community Policing, and is excited about going to East Precinct, which has strong community involvement.

“Commander Mike Crebs has proven to be a strong leader in community policing,” says Chief Derrick Foxworth. “For example, while assigned to the Transit Police Division, Commander Crebs formed the first citizen advisory group to Transit Police. I am confident that he will join with the leaders of the many East Precinct neighborhood associations, citizens advisory groups and others to continue the numerous neighborhood livability and crime prevention missions that have successfully reduced the rate of residential burglary in East Precinct.”
