The next training for Kenton residents interested in joining our soon to start Kenton Community Foot Patrol is coming up next month! We have already trained 13 members and would like to double this number prior to our kick off walk, which will be held in early February.
Foot Patrols are non-confrontational community groups who walk in designated areas and help observe and report a host of issues including crime, suspicious activity, and maintenance issues. The biggest goal of a Community Foot Patrol is to connect neighbors, build a stronger sense of community and safety, and work directly with Portland Police, Crime Prevention, and other public safety agencies.
When: Thursday, February 2nd
Time: 7:00pm – 9:00pm
Where: North Portland Neighborhood Services Office / Kenton Historic Firehouse – 2209 N.Schofield St.
Foot Patrol member are asked to donate 1-3 hours a month walking in their neighborhoods and we need as many volunteers as possible to make this group a success.
Please bring a government issued form of identification.
