Portland Police add patrols to synagogues following the shooting that killed 11 at a synagogue in Pittsburgh that killed 11.

The Police Bureau works with the FBI's Joint Terrorism Taskforce, to learn of any new threats to the community.

They say they are currently not aware of any threats.  

"The Police Bureau is aware of the concern and sadness incidents such as the one in Pittsburgh have on the community in Portland," said Chief Danielle Outlaw. "Our officers are reaching out to leaders of Jewish houses of worship in the City of Portland and will be present to provide security and a sense of safety as community members come together to grieve and begin the healing process." 

The Portland Police Bureau wants the community to know that all threats of violence need to be reported to law enforcement and will be thoroughly investigated.
