Community Safety Training: PPB’s Community Safety Presentation
Friday, October 29, 2021 (9:00 AM - 11:00 AM)
Community members and businesses often reach out to the Portland Police Bureau to ask for guidance on how they can manage challenging interactions with community members who may be escalated, in crisis, or possibly impaired by drugs and/or alcohol.
Questions frequently asked are:
What resources are in the city to help people who may be escalated, in crisis, houseless, or impaired by drugs and/or alcohol?
What are my legal rights and obligations as a community member?
What are my legal rights and obligations as a business owner or employee?
What are some considerations when deciding how to deal with a challenging situation and whether or not to intervene?
Finally, attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions or discuss specific challenges faced by them or their business.
