A Message from the Captain
The Family Services Division of the Portland Police Bureau is charged with investigating crimes perpetrated against vulnerable populations within our community. Members consist of a unique blend of sworn police personnel and civilian employees who are dedicated to serving fragile victim populations. Police officers, detectives, sergeants, victim advocates and volunteers, and other staff have been carefully selected based on their skills, level of experience, and abilities to work with victims.
The Family Services Division works closely with several law enforcement agencies, social service agencies and community-based organizations throughout the metropolitan area in order to combat crime and violence against children; senior and vulnerable adults; and families. Through these collaborative efforts, we are able to coordinate investigations and provide a comprehensive system of care.
We care about victims and work diligently to protect them while holding criminals accountable.
