East Precinct’s Neighborhood Response Team continues to conduct missions to address crimes that affect livability, including retail theft. On Tuesday, March 21, 2023, East personnel, along with PPB’s Air Support Unit, K9 units and the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office Transit Police, provided directed patrols around businesses in the Menlo Park neighborhood in the areas between Southeast Stark Street and Northeast San Rafael Street, and between Northeast 117th Avenue and 126th Avenue.
This mission brought a high visibility presence in the area, and officers visited multiple businesses while Transit Police were highly active and visible along the MAX line at 122nd Avenue.
Multiple drivers of vehicles eluded police and occupants inside the vehicle eluded on foot. With the assistance of the Air Support Unit, police were able to apprehend 100 percent of these eluders.
The mission contacted 32 subjects and 30 vehicles, resulting in 26 arrests (15 for felony charges and 17 for misdemeanor charges). It also included:
-17 Felony warrants serviced
-15 Misdemeanor warrants serviced
-6 Vehicles eluded
-7 Subjects eluded on foot
-3 Stolen vehicles captured
-3 Vehicles towed
-2 Illegally possessed firearms seized
The day started with an early morning roll call with members of the Menlo Business Association. This is an example of community policing at its best with community members working with law enforcement to help make the community safer.
