Rep. Lori Chavez-DeRemer (OR-05) has announced that she has invited Portland Police Officer Jordan Zaitz to attend the State of the Union Address as her guest. Officer Zaitz is a 19-year-veteran of PPB and currently works as a Neighborhood Response Team officer at East Precinct. In her role, she has had a tremendous impact on the community of East Precinct and was honored with PPB's Mark Zylawy Distinguished Service Medal late last year.

"It was great news to hear that Officer Zaitz had been selected for this honor," said Chief Chuck Lovell. "Officer Zaitz is a hardworking and distinguished officer who works daily to give the best customer service to everyone she encounters, regardless of who they are or how she contacts them. She shows compassion and care for victims, suspects and community members."

"Officer Jordan Zaitz embodies all of the qualities of a true community policing officer," said East Precinct Commander Erica Hurley. "She truly cares about the Portland Police Bureau, her fellow officers and the community she serves. I am honored and blessed to have her working at East Precinct."

A few years ago, Zaitz and the PPB filmed a ride-along video, which focuses on her responsibilities and experiences: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cKpkUXaOegU
