Portland’s crime prevention services are offered through the Office of Neighborhood Involvement and are designed to get neighbors involved in community policing efforts. The Crime Prevention Program focuses on preserving public safety and enhancing neighborhood livability to meet the needs of each neighborhood or business area.
The program assists neighbors in problem-solving projects relating to issues such as drug houses, youth gangs, graffiti, street drug dealing, prostitution, problem parks, problem liquor outlets and neighborhood “hot spots”.
For more information, visit the City of Portland Crime Prevention website, or contact your neighborhood Crime Prevention Coordinator.
