Portland has a long history of community involvement in neighborhood based crime prevention. One of the best ways to decrease crime in a community is for people within the neighborhood to be connected and communicate with each other. The Community Safety Program works to provide education and trainings to the community to increase livability and reduce the fear of crime in the City of Portland.
