Narcan doses discovered missing this week: 0


Case #: 230076
Date: 2023 02 20
Time: 2030
Description: Damage to Property
Location: Grove Lot

Notes: A student arrived at 28 West to report that there had been an unsuccessful attempt to steal the license plate off of their vehicle. The student had installed anti-theft bolts, which showed signs of tampering. Additionally, the license plate was bent from an attempt to forcibly remove it from the vehicle.

Case #: 230077
Date: 2023 02 21
Time: 1627
Description: Damage to Property/Theft of Motor Vehicle/Clery Act Reportable Incident
Location: East Lot

Notes: A CSO responded to a report of a vehicle break-in in the East Lot. The CSO met with the vehicle owner who stated that they had returned to their vehicle to find that the ignition switch had been removed from the vehicle. The CSO encouraged the owner to report the damage to the Portland Police. Approximately six hours later, another CSO checking on the vehicle observed that the driver’s side door lock had been drilled out. This matched a pattern seen in prior situations in which after the door lock was removed, the vehicle was stolen. Dispatch contacted the vehicle owner and recommended that they remove the vehicle’s battery so that the vehicle could not be stolen before the owner had a chance to have it towed away for repairs. The vehicle owner did so.

CS Survey Responses:

Every week Community Safety requests survey responses from those who've had interactions with a member of the Community Safety team. These responses are always collected anonymously with the option for the responder to leave contact information if they would like for a member of Community Safety management to contact them, and are used internally for departmental performance tracking. Community Safety has opted to publish these survey results for transparency and community accountability. *Names and pronouns mentioned in survey responses will be redacted to protect the privacy of individuals.

In addition to surveys sent directly to those who have interacted with Community Safety, the Reed community is always encouraged to independently complete the survey regarding Community Safety's performance.
