The theme for the campaign, which began last year, is: “For every Portland police officer, there is a story. Join us and write the next chapter.” Having employment information on transit is a first for the Portland Police Bureau. The campaign will involve a TriMet bus that can be circulated on a number of routes throughout the community. The campaign will also include benches at various bus stops throughout the community. The images reflect the diversity of Portland Police Officers and Command personnel.
“We need quality police officer recruits who want to serve Portland and be part of our community policing efforts,” Police Chief Derrick Foxworth said. “I know there are many people right here in Portland who fit the bill and it is our job to get in front of them in their daily lives and make them visualize themselves as Portland Police Officers.”
The Bureau’s website at www.joinportlandpolice.com will be prominently displayed in all transit advertising. The website has also been expanded to assist potential candidates in the hiring process.
The Bureau’s community partners included TriMet, Lamar Advertising and Portland Community College.
