Published

A multi-agency public safety mission was held on Friday, March 8, in the communities of Fairview, Troutdale and Wood Village. Organized by the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO), the mission primarily focused on retail theft and traffic safety.

Police officers from the Portland Police Bureau and Gresham Police Department assisted MCSO deputies.

The mission resulted in 43 traffic stops and 10 arrests. Deputies confiscated one handgun, and altogether, the team recovered $2,174.43 of stolen merchandise.

“What makes this public safety mission unique is the level of collaboration from the Portland Police Bureau and Gresham Police Department," Multnomah County Sheriff Nicole Morrisey O’Donnell said. "Their officers joined our deputies, leading to a more impactful and successful mission. We’re grateful for their partnership and support of east county.”

In 2023, the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office conducted 60 individual public safety missions across the county, focusing on speed and seatbelt enforcement, crosswalk and school zone safety, distracted driving, car theft, gun violence, safety and security on TriMet platforms, buses and trains, and human trafficking.

The Sheriff's Office will continue to conduct these public safety missions into 2024.

“We are committed to creating safe and thriving communities in Multnomah County and our contract cities of Maywood Park, Fairview, Troutdale and Wood Village," Sheriff Morrisey O'Donnell said.
