53 neighbors use Nextdoor - do you?

Fifty-three people living in Boise have joined a new social network called Nextdoor, which is designed to connect neighbors. It's a free service, similar to Facebook, but based on neighborhood.

From the company website: "Nextdoor is the private social network for you, your neighbors and your community. It's the easiest way for you and your neighbors to talk online and make all of your lives better in the real world. And it's free. Nextdoor’s mission is to use the power of technology to build stronger and safer neighborhoods."

Workshop Information:

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.

Sponsored by: Northeast Coalition of Neighborhoods, Central Northeast Neighborhoods, and North Portland Neighborhood Services
