This morning the City of Portland hosted a meeting of business leaders to discuss safety issues. Mayor Hales and Assistant Police Chief Day were responsive to the concerns expressed regarding the Portland’s apparently growing homeless population and the need to reach out to minority populations. Portland is looking for housing options for Portland’s homeless and just hired its first Somali police officer, Mayor Hales pointed out. Here are some photos I took of the event.
