In the wake of deadly attacks in houses of worship in other cities in the United States and around the world, local and federal law enforcement agencies, in partnership with the One Congregation One Precinct (OneCOP) initiative, will present a joint special seminar for faith communities.

Representatives from the Portland Police Bureau, U.S. Attorney's Office, FBI, Oregon State Police and the Multnomah, Clackamas and Washington County Sheriff's Offices will present the seminar this Sunday, June 30, 2019, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Congregation Neveh Shalom in Portland. This is located at 2900 SW Peaceful Lane, Portland, Oregon, 97239.

The seminar will present information designed to support and update existing house of worship security protocols and preparedness measures. All senior faith leaders, congregational security, and congregational members in Multnomah, Clackamas and Washington counties are encouraged to attend. The seminar will include a robust question and answer period.

It is important to note that this this seminar is being offered for information and preparedness purposes only and is not responsive to any active or known threats to area congregations.

This seminar is free and designed for senior faith leaders and congregational members. Those who would like to attend should RSVP with the OneCOP office at (404) 605-7000.
