Portland Police Officers will partner with a pre-selected child/youth to shop for their selection of clothing, school supplies, or toys for Christmas.

YSD officers form partnerships and build relationships with youth that are impactful and sustainable. YSD officers teach youth good citizenship values and work to help schools increase their graduation rates.

Ensuring school safety is the highest priority for YSD officers. Their main mission is to provide a school environment that is free of crime, the fear of crime, intimidation and disorder, so that school staff and students can achieve their education goals without distraction.

The School Resource Officer (SRO) works closely with school staff, students and parents and is included in every major discussion related to school safety and disorder. The primary activities of the SRO are problem solving, education, mentorship, and crime prevention.

SRO's have chosen children they have come in contact with, whose families are in need of assistance this holiday season. Each of the 40 youth selected will receive a $100.00 Target gift card to spend on a gift that they otherwise would not have been able to give or receive.

YSD invites members of the community to attend this event to see SRO's and staff in action. The Portland Police Bureau encourages the community to get to know the SRO's, ask questions, and talk with the officers about what is happening in and around our schools.

For interested media, Captain Tashia Hager will be at the Heroes and Helpers event, available for interviews.

Demonstration Events Conclude in Downtown Portland -- Six People Arrested (Photo) - 11/17/18

On Saturday, November 17, 2018, during protest events near Terry Schrunk Plaza and Chapman Square Park, six people were arrested.

The General Services Administration, the federal agency responsible for Terry Schrunk Plaza, approved a permit for a group to use the plaza today. As part of the General Services Administration permit, the permit holder had the authority to determine who could and could not enter the park while the permit was in effect. In preparation for today's permit, the Federal Protection Service erected fencing around the perimeter of Terry Schrunk Plaza.

There was also a demonstration in Chapman Square today. Prior to today's events, PPB closed a portion of Chapman Square under Portland City Code 20.12.190(B). The area closure was an attempt to use an existing tool to facilitate a peaceful event while minimizing the opportunity for groups to clash violently. The intention of the closure of this portion provided a cushion between the two groups so differing opinions could be voiced, but the potential for violence reduced.

During today's events, there were multiple assaults reported, as well as projectiles thrown at demonstrators and officers. Officers observed sticks, glass bottles, lit road flares, bottles filled with a substance believed to be urine, and gopher gas used as projectiles.

"The Portland Police Bureau spent considerable time planning for today's demonstration and counter demonstration," said Chief Danielle Outlaw. "We used significant resources and attempted to keep opposing groups apart, both when they were in the parks and as they traveled through downtown. Our goal was to keep all people in the community safe."

At this time, the Police Bureau is aware that the following riot control agents and less lethal impact munitions were used in response to the violent and assaultive behavior of the crowd and after the crowd failed to disperse in response to police orders:

* Rubber Ball Distraction Device http://www.defense-technology.com/products/tactical-devices/stinger-rubber-ball/stinger-60-caliber-rubber-balls-w-safety-clip-1152900.html#start=1 or http://www.defense-technology.com/products/tactical-devices/rubber-ball-blast/rubber-ball-blast-grenade-inert-1012946.html#start=1

Throughout the afternoon and evening, the Portland Police Bureau provided information and updates on Twitter, including photos of the weapons and items seized throughout the day: https://twitter.com/PortlandPolice

The Police Bureau is aware that several instances of criminal behavior were filmed and broadcast on a various media platforms. These crimes may include, but are not limited to: Disorderly Conduct, Assault, Theft, and Reckless Burning. Investigators will be conducting follow-up which may lead to arrests at a later time. If you were the victim of a crime during this protest event, you are encouraged to file a police report.
