Recent months have brought distressing news about a variety of unrelated sexual offenses in North and Northeast Portland, including a serial flasher, public groping, and sexual assault.
This may have been weighing on your mind and leaving you with a lot of questions. How can I protect myself and my children? What do police do about these kinds of cases? Why do sex offenders do these things? Don’t they have to register? Is there anything I and my neighbors can do? How do I talk to my child about this?
Drop by to ask questions of experts such as: police officers and detectives, probation and parole officers, self-defense teachers, sex offender treatment providers, rape victim advocates, crime prevention coordinators, and more.
Experts will be tabling between the hours of 6:00-9:00pm, ready to answer your questions and pass out handouts. Foot Patrol informational session at 7:00pm.
