The Portland Police Bureau is dedicated to protecting and serving the people of Portland. We will continue to do so during this public health emergency. This is a quickly evolving situation that requires PPB to do our part to limit exposure without interrupting the high level of service provided to our community. It is necessary that we maintain a healthy workforce so that we may continue providing emergency services when called upon. We have identified certain operational measures that can be temporarily modified for the community and our members.
It is important to note that PPB remains answering all calls for service. Our number one goal and priority is to respond as quickly as possible to life-threatening emergencies. We are currently taking all calls for service, yet we are encouraging other forms of reporting to follow social distancing guidelines. PPB members will continue to respond in-person to calls where there is a life safety issue or if it is a call that cannot be taken online or by phone due to the nature of the call.
The following operational guidelines are in effect:
News Releases from PPB
