On Saturday April 15, 2023, East Precinct Officers conducted a Stolen Vehicle Operation (SVO). This operation was focused on numerous areas in East Precinct with a high number of reported stolen vehicles.

This operation resulted in 33 stops with 14 stolen vehicles recovered, 11 arrests, and 2 recovered firearms.

Officers from this SVO also handed out wheel locking devices to those that had their vehicle recovered.

East Precinct continues to run these operations using a data-driven and evidence-based approach to conduct less stops with better outcomes (recovering stolen vehicles).

East Precinct has partnered with OHSU’s Knight Cancer Research Institute in addressing stolen vehicles in the community.
