News Release
PPB and PBOT Partner to Address Public Safety and Livability Issues (Photo) - 09/23/21

Over the last month, Central Precinct's Neighborhood Response Team (NRT) has partnered with the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT)'s Parking Enforcement on two occasions in the 6400 Block of NW Front Avenue to conduct joint enforcement missions. This location had generated significant community complaints to both agencies.

Over the course of these two missions, Officers made seven arrests, recovered six stolen cars, recovered one firearm, towed one vehicle for further VIN inspection and assisted PBOT in towing 20 cars which had been identified and tagged as “abandoned" or were parked in posted "no parking any time" areas. Additionally, at least one person was referred to housing, case management or other social service resources.

This work is part of a continued effort to partner with other City bureaus in order to ensure public safety and livability issues are addressed appropriately. Central Precinct Public Safety Specialists were involved in these missions as well and proved to be a significant and important resource.
