PORTLAND OREGON - THE NEW DEADWOOD: WHAT TO DO?
- Patrol and be observant – Document vandalism (Criminal Mischief)
- Ask persons in the areas about past or recent criminal activity.
- Build rapport by hanging out when you feel welcome – building rapport may involve handing our food, water, cigarettes, but not money. Echelon Protective Services will reimburse you. Let us know and keep receipts.
- Document when you are not welcome – photograph aggressive parties for background follow-up. Don’t engage people when you are not welcome, just document the incident and notify management.
