PPS Schools Start Tomorrow: PPB to Conduct Extra Patrols in the Coming Weeks (Photo) - 08/26/15
The Portland Police Bureau and the Portland Bureau of Transportation are partnering to keep Portland's students safe as they return to school this week.

Portland Public School students are scheduled to go back to school on Thursday, August 27, 2015. Other local school districts, as well as private and charter schools, will begin classes during the next two weeks.

To ensure student safety and increase awareness of the start of the school year, the Portland Police Bureau will be conducting high visibility patrols around all schools as part of its annual "Back to School" safety campaign.

Beginning this week, many students will be walking and riding their bicycles to school. Congestion in school zones will increase, especially during the busy morning and afternoon drop-off and pickup times.

The Portland Police Bureau Youth Services Division, Traffic Division, Central Precinct, North Precinct and East Precinct will be providing a highly visible police presence in and around local schools.

Dozens of officers, including Photo Radar Units, will be enforcing traffic laws in these zones to reduce the number of crashes in school zones and to create a safe environment for students returning to school.

There will be emphasis placed on traffic safety and traffic education for the students, bicyclists and drivers of motorized vehicles during the morning hours when students arrive at their schools and in the afternoon hours when the schools dismiss their students.

Hours of enhanced patrol will vary but generally will be between 7:45 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. then again from 2:30 p.m. until 3:30 p.m.

Drivers should be aware of two schools that have relocated to previously closed schools: Franklin High students are temporarily being relocated to Marshall High (3905 SE 91st Ave). Marshall has been closed for several years and drivers may not be recognize this school zone. Portland Police will be providing extra patrols in this area.

In addition, expect increased traffic on N. Flint due to Faubion School's temporary relocation to Harriet Tubman. During school drop off and pick up hours, people who regularly bicycle on North Flint should consider using North Vancouver and Williams. Please use extra caution in this area.

The Portland Police Bureau has partnered with the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) to increase awareness as school begins.

They bureaus offer these safety tips:
* If you're driving, obey the 20 mph speed limit in school zones
* Be vigilant and courteous to children crossing the street.
* If you're a parent, consider walking or biking to school with your students where possible to reduce congestion, improve safety and provide young people with needed physical activity.

Remind your child to:
Never walk while texting or talking on the phone
* If texting, move out of the way of others and stop on the sidewalk
* Never cross the street while using an electronic device
* Do not walk with headphones on
* Be aware of the surroundings

Finally, watch for school buses. Remember if yellow or red lights are flashing and the stop arm is extended, traffic must stop.

This year marks the 13-year anniversary of Shop with a Cop, where police officers and 240 kids spend a morning together shopping for back to school clothing. Participating kids are identified by the Boys and Girls Club of Portland, and are selected based on their financial need and outstanding volunteer efforts in the community. These kids have worked very hard to earn this opportunity.

New this year, celebrity shoppers Mayor Charlie Hales and Portland Timber's Captain Will Johnson will join the event.

The Portland Police Bureau Sunshine Division, Fred Meyer, and new partner, Camp Rosenbaum, are funding the program and have generously donated more than $36,000 for Wednesday's event. In addition to the cash donation, Fred Meyer provides a significant discount off clothing purchased at the event and a backpack with school supplies for each child.

"No one was ever so happy to see more than 100 cops before" said Sunshine Division's officer, Matt Tobey. "It's a great opportunity for the Bureau and Sunshine Division to show the community the positive aspects of community policing. This organization and these officers care about giving these kids a positive experience and the tools they need to feel good and perform well in school."

The Sunshine Division funds the "Shop with a Cop" event through its Izzy's Kids program. Izzy's Kids, which began in 1981 in honor of longtime board member Isabel Hoyt, provides funds so that Portland police officers can take children in need shopping for new school clothes. The Izzy's Kids program operates year-round and will pair an additional 300+ kids with an officer, for a unique, one-on-one shopping experience throughout the remainder of the school year.

Members of the media are invited to attend. For more information on this event, contact Executive Director, Kyle Camberg at 503.577.6852 or kyle@sunshinedivision.org

Fraud Alert: Scammers Claiming to be Law Enforcement on Phone Threatening Arrest for Missing Court (Photo) - 08/04/15
The Portland Police Bureau has been made aware that several Portland residents have received phone calls from a person claiming to be a police officer and threatening to arrest people for missing court if they don't pay a fine over the phone.

The recent scammers are "spoofing" their phone number so that caller ID makes it appear that the call is originating from a Portland Police facility.

Other scammers have claimed to be holding someone in custody unless thousands of dollars are paid over the phone.

Callers typically instruct the victims to purchase re-loadable cards and call them back with the numbers.

Similar scams have been reported in the past year where callers claim to be with a utility or other government agency.

These scammers will often target older community members and/or residents for whom English is a second language.

The Portland Police Bureau reminds you to be aware that:

* The Portland Police Bureau or any other legitimate law enforcement agency does not call community members seeking payment for outstanding traffic citations or warrants.

* The Portland Police Bureau does not call individuals and demand money from community members under any circumstances.

* Individuals claiming to collect debts may try to instill fear in potential victims to persuade them to forward money.

MoneyPak/Green Dot and Vanilla Reload have online tools to allow purchasers to request a refund if the scammer has not yet cashed the card.

For more information, please visit https://www.moneypak.com/refundrequest.aspx for MoneyPak/Green Dot and https://www.vanillareload.com/index.php/refund for Vanilla Reload.

If you are a resident of Portland and fall victim to these scammers with financial loss, you are encouraged to file a report by calling the Portland Police Bureau's Non-Emergency line at 503-823-3333.

Tips to help avoid becoming a victim to this scam include:

* Never give personal or financial information to an unsolicited caller or email.

* Be suspicious of callers who demand immediate payment for any reason.

* Utility companies and government agencies will never contact you for payment by GreenDot, MoneyPak or Vanilla Reload.

* Remember that anyone who has the number on a prepaid card has access to the funds on your card.

* Never wire money, provide debit or credit card numbers to a stranger.

The Oregon Judicial Department (OJD) advises that courts may use an independent collection service to collect unpaid monetary judgments and fines. If someone believes they are being scammed regarding an alleged unpaid traffic citation or other court-imposed financial obligation they can:

* Ask the collector (caller) for information specific to the alleged warrant or unpaid traffic citation. The caller should have the court case number, date of ticket and vehicle license number.

* Verify the debt or confirm other details by calling the OJD collections hotline at 1-888-564-2828.

* Use OJD Courts ePay to directly pay money owed to state courts for most traffic citations, civil fees or criminal fines (For more information go to http://www.courts.oregon.gov/OJD/OnlineServices/ePay/Pages/index.aspx.

If you receive a similar call, disconnect without providing any information or taking any instructions from the caller. Contact your local law enforcement agency. You may also file a complaint with the Oregon Department of Justice Consumer Protection Office via the Consumer Hotline at 1-877-877-9392 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., or complete an online Consumer Complaint Form anytime at http://www.doj.state.or.us/consumer/Pages/complaint.aspx
