Community Safety

A Holistic Approach

The Community Safety Program organizes and supports partnerships to build safe communities that are connected, inclusive, and engaged.

Our city is safer, stronger, and more vibrant when all Portlanders can participate and work collaboratively and creatively on public safety. We support neighbors to work with each other, with the City, and with community in addressing a broad range of interconnected public safety solutions, such as emergency preparedness, personal safety, community advocacy, active transportation, and more.


We asked Portlanders- What does community safety mean to you?

Check out their answers in this video!
