Media Ride-Along Policy

Portland Street Response does not allow members of the media to participate in ride-alongs with our mobile crisis response team.

Protecting the confidentiality of our clients is not only required by law and our medical practice licenses, but it is paramount in creating trust within the community that we serve.

The community members we respond to in mental health crises and/or living in vulnerable and unsafe situations are not able to offer consent.

While we appreciate media interest in our work, we will attempt to offer other ways to access these stories, either via our team members or community partners. We also offer inside vehicle response b-roll in case you need this sort of footage for your story.

Thank you for understanding our need to put our clients first.


The b-roll below is available for your use.
