Service Coordination Team Graduation February 15 at 9:30a.m. at City Hall (Photo) - 02/14/18

The Portland Police Bureau Behavioral Health Unit's Service Coordination Team (SCT) has scheduled a graduation on Thursday, February 15, 2018, from 9:30 a.m. -- 11:00 a.m., in City Council Chambers at Portland's City Hall, located at 1220 Southwest 4th Avenue, 2nd Floor.

The Service Coordination Team is a Portland Police Bureau program that provides housing and addiction treatment to individuals with chronic arrests. Through the coordination of law enforcement and community providers, services work to address the root cause of criminal activity and offer real, long-term, attainable solutions to aid individuals in changing their lives.

Thursday, the SCT will be honoring 46 graduates who have been working for approximately nine months to a year. The graduates are from Central City Concern's Housing Rapid Response and NISA programs, the Central City Concern Outpatient Treatment programs, and several other addiction treatment programs, who work in collaboration with supportive housing.

There has been approximately 250 completions of the program since inception.

Wendy Duffy, Class of 2012, will be Master of Ceremonies, Mayor Ted Wheeler and Portland Police Chief Danielle Outlaw will be making welcoming and congratulatory remarks.

Expected to attend are the new graduates, as well as SCT Alumni who will be recognized for their continued sobriety, progress and achievements.

The graduation program is a moving opportunity to see the power of change at work and the success of the Service Coordination Team's partnerships.

The Service Coordination Team is a partnership between the Portland Police Bureau, the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office, the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office, the Multnomah County Department of Community Justice, Portland Patrol Inc., Central City Concern, Transition Projects Inc., DePaul Treatment Center, Portland Business Alliance Clean and Safe, and multiple other agencies.

Refreshments will be served immediately afterward in the foyer on the first floor.

For additional information about the Service Coordination Team, contact Program Manager Emily Rochon at 503-823-3449, emily.rochon@portlandoregon.gov.
