Public Safety

Information

"Portlanders have a right to feel safe. I am committed to investing in programs that improve public safety in an urgent and strategic way, while also supporting reformed policies and practices to rebuild trust and accountability," -Mayor Ted Wheeler 

In 2021, the City had a historic $62 million surplus within the Fall Budget Monitoring Process. Mayor Wheeler announced on November 2 his proposal to invest over $7 million to improve public safety.

"These funds are an opportunity to stabilize our city and can act as a bridge while we wait for longer-term investments to take shape," Mayor Wheeler said.

City Council voted to approve the Mayor's proposed Fall Budget on November 17. The investments in public safety  align with the framework that guides the community safety plan to Refocus, Reform, and Restaff as we work to improve our effectiveness, transparency, and accountability.
