Quarterly Public Safety Action Committee Meetings
Quarterly Public Safety Action Committee Meetings will be held in lieu of the Public Safety Committee Meetings in October, January and April.
All residents and businesses in SW Portland are invited.
The Southwest Neighborhoods Public Safety Committee (SNPSC) has been around for years, providing members with valuable information about crime prevention and emergency preparedness.The agenda will reflect the crime-related concerns of community members in attendance and projects the group wants to pursue.
The PSAC meeting is a great opportunity for community members to meet their neighborhood officers and Central Precinct command staff. It is a forum where community members, businesses, neighborhood associations, and the Central Precinct Portland Police come together to problem-solve issues in their neighborhoods. PSAC will start at 6:30pm, with open houses 6-6:30pm to meet your local officers.
