  • ‪Officer Walz was flagged down by a community member who turned in an abandoned juvenile squirrel to us. Officer Walz is enroute to Dove Lewis with it now. ‬
  • We had a great time welcoming students back to school at Vernon Elementary School!
  • It is with heavy hearts we share that Officer Grant Shirahama passed away suddenly after a medical issue, while off-duty Friday. Grant was a valued officer in our Youth Services Division. May his family feel the strength and love from all PPB and those he touched.
  • Officers had the opportunity to give out cold treats to kids at @ohsudoernbecher! Thanks for having us stop by! 👮🏻‍♂️🍦
  • On Wednesday August 15, 2018, the Sunshine Division partnered with Fred Meyer and Camp Rosenbaum to fund the annual "Shop with a Cop" event at the Gateway Fred Meyer store, located at 1111 Northeast 102nd Avenue. 
This year marks the 16-year anniversary of 'Shop with a Cop', where Portland Police Bureau officers, Multnomah County Sheriff's Office deputies, and up to 275 kids spend a morning together shopping for back-to-school clothing. Participating kids are identified by the Boys and Girls Club of Portland, Jewish Family & Child Services, Healthy Birth Initiative, and Multnomah County Youth and Family Services Division and are selected based on their financial need. 
The Sunshine Division, Fred Meyer, and Camp Rosenbaum, have partnered to fund the program and generously donated $34,000 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 and toiletries for each child. "Shop with a Cop and the Izzy's Kids program is a great opportunity for the Portland Police Bureau and the 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," said Sunshine Division's Bureau Liaison, Officer Matt Tobey. 
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 officers for a unique, one-on-one shopping experience throughout the remainder of the school year. The year-round Izzy's Kids program is generously funded by the Reser Family Foundation, Richard R. Burns Estate, and loyal private donors.
  • Thanks to everyone who came out to National Night Out last night. PPB members were at many events across the city and we had a great time visiting with our community members. #nno2018
  • ‪Our thanks to Wanda who was handing out roses to officers to brighten their day. It certainly put a smile Sergeant Burley’s face.
  • Meet Nolan, the Traffic Division's newest recruit!
  • Officer Young rescued 9 spotted geckos from an abandoned downtown camp. The cute little critters are now with Multnomah County Animal Services.
