During this holiday season, the Portland Police Bureau will be providing extra visible presence in the downtown shopping districts, including Northwest 23rd Avenue.
This initiative is part of an ongoing effort to encourage community members to feel safe and enjoy visiting businesses in these areas.
Officers will provide extra patrols and visible presence on foot patrol, bicycle patrol, and vehicle patrol.
This community policing endeavor will also support other City Bureaus and will not use overtime.
