Officers perform community policing continually throughout their day, but sometimes we highlight some of the more interesting or significant events:
A recent geocaching event was held at the SW Portland Community Center. Officers gave away its first set of 27 PPB trackable path tags to the community members who have attended 4 or more of our monthly meetings, which started in December.
Gang Enforcement Officers along with Traffic Officers took some kids from the Boys and Girls Clubs to a recent Portland Trail Blazers game. Everyone had a great time and the Blazers won!
Spring Break Youth Basketball Camp:
North officers took part in a week long basketball put on by Straight Away Service and the Miracle club. At the end of the camp, officers brought the mobile precinct and had a barbecue—the smell must have been great, because community members stopped by and ended up staying for a bite.
