Stephanie Herro was hired on August 15, 2019, as the Portland Police Bureau's first-ever Homeless Community Liaison. In this new role, she is the primary interface between the Police Bureau and the homeless advocacy community, including social service, governmental or law enforcement agencies. The Liaison is charged with developing an action plan for police response to the homeless community and collaborates with the Bureau's Training Division to develop ongoing training for officers regarding contemporary best practices for communicating, policing, and providing services to the unsheltered community.
The Liaison is not a direct responder to the community regarding the issues around those in the homeless community. The City's One Point of Contact online reporting system provides a single place to report issues surrounding urban campsites.
