The Friends of the Pearl Foot Patrol kicked off its first walk on July 8 with some 20 volunteers gathering at Jamison Square. Representatives from the Police Bureau, Office of Neighborhood Involvement (ONI) and the Parks and Recreation Bureau were also on hand. Led by ONI’s Crime Prevention Coordinator, Mark Wells, volunteers donned their colorful yellow vests and did a walkthrough of the North Pearl. The group will soon schedule routine patrols throughout the District. Additional volunteers have already filled up the next training session scheduled later in July.
Initiated earlier this year by Friends of the Pearl, a subcommittee of the Pearl District Neighborhood Association’sLivability and Safety Committee, the patrol concept has garnered much interest in the community. A Neighborhood Watch program is also in the works over the coming months.
More detailed information about neighborhood safety can be found on the ONI website www.portlandoregon.gov/oni/cp
People over 18 years old are welcome to join. For those interested in participating, please email email@example.com

A nationwide test of the emergency alert system (EAS) is occurring on Wednesday, November 9th at 11:00 a.m. P.S.T. EAS tests occur frequently at the local level, but this will be the first time the system has been activated simultaneously throughout the country. For more information, visit the FEMA website.

As trusted community volunteers, I'd like your assistance getting the word out. Please consider forwarding the attached document to your friends and neighbors, and emphasize the following:
