February 25th hundreds of Portlanders will be taking the Polar Plunge to support Special Olympics Oregon. We need your help!! We raise funds to support Special Olympics Oregon so that 13,000 athletes can participate in the games year round, at no expense to themselves. Join the “Portland Police Plungers” team or if you are too chicken to plunge, just make a donation.

Portland Police Increasing Outreach to Address Safety Concerns in Immigrant and Refugee Community January 30, 2017 15:20 Today, Monday January 30, 2017, Portland Police Bureau Chief Mike Marshman stood with community members, including those from our immigrant and refugee community, to provide reassurances to people struggling with uncertainty and fear. At today's news conference, Chief Marshman shared a statement he sent to all members of the Portland Police Bureau: On Friday January 27, 2017, President Donald Trump signed an executive order restricting travel to the United States from seven countries in what is being described by many as a Muslim ban. This action has spread fear and uncertainty to our refugee and immigrant communities served by the Portland Police Bureau. I want you, the members of the Portland Police Bureau, to be a source of reassurance to the community. We must be diligent in our efforts to the community who now more than ever might see us as a source of fear. We must be the ones who reach out first to all whom we serve and be able to answer their questions and provide clarity on what our role is in regard to immigration. That means giving assurance that we are not an extension of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). We follow and enforce Oregon law. We do not enforce federal immigration laws, under Oregon Revised Statute (ORS) 181A.820 https://www.oregonlaws.org/ors/181A.820 I further ask that you continue to provide extra patrol around mosques, Islamic schools and community centers as another layer of protection for those in our community who may be experiencing fear and anxiety, especially after an attack in Quebec, Canada on Sunday. While we have no known threats locally, our presence may provide reassurances to those in fear. Over the past few months, I have received many heartfelt thanks from the immigrant and refugee communities describing their positive encounters with Portland Police officers. Although these communities have a heightened sense of fear and uncertainty, I am confident we will continue to be an agency they can turn to for safety and security.

#Repost @billy_lee_steele ・・・ A statue of K9 Mick, was placed in front of our K9 office. Mick paid the ultimate price when he was shot and killed while pursuing a burglary suspect in 2014. Mick saved numerous lives that day. We will have a formal dedication in the near future after the memorial is finished.
