Do you live in S.E. Portland? Are you fed up with some of the happenings going on in your neighborhood? Would you like to find out what is being done to improve the area? Do you want to listen to what is going on in the city? Wouldn't it be nice to actually sit down with the police force and talk with them person-to-person and express your concerns?
Well, you're in luck. The Lents Neighborhood Livability Association has graciously arranged a morning to sit and have "Coffee with a Cop."
On Wednesday, March 2nd, from 9am-10am, you can carve out an hour to come and meet Commander Erica Hurley, Captain David Abrahamson, and Lieutenant Robert Quick with the Eastside Precinct. They will be at the Mocha Express at 1951 Southeast 82nd Avenue, which is near the Portland Community College Eastside Campus, near S.E. Division Street and 82nd Avenue.
During this coffee hour, you can sit with these members of the Eastside Precinct and have an ear to hear your concerns about your neighborhood.
The meeting also provides you with information about who you can contact to express your specific concerns. You may find that the police are not always the best people to contact.
The Lents Neighborhood Livability Association and the Eastside Precinct will give you additional resources to help address and even solve neighborhood problems.
If you have a free hour and you'd like to join "Coffee with a Cop," you don't need to make a reservations. Arrive on time and be a part of the solution for your neighborhood and work with your community to make a more livable place to live.
