The City of Portland’s Crime Prevention Program, which is housed under the Office of Neighborhood Involvement Bureau, provides services designed to reduce crime, increase livability, and get neighbors involved in community policing efforts. Crime Prevention Coordinators (CPCs) educate the public on crime and public safety, help neighbors problem-solve ongoing criminal and related livability issues and organize community members into Neighborhood Watches, Foot Patrols and other groups that improve and advocate for the safety of their neighborhoods.

Some of the problems that CPCs help address include drug houses, street drug dealing, prostitution, problem parks, problem liquor outlets and neighborhood “hot spots”.

For more information, visit the City of Portland Crime Prevention website, or contact your neighborhood Crime Prevention Coordinator.
