(Portland, OR)  --  Portland Police Chief Mike Reese is asking the City Council for funding that would allow the return of a traffic-enforcement night shift.  Reese wants 300-thousand dollars included in the next city budget to restore the shift, which was eliminated in the last budget.  Reese says there were 35 traffic-related fatalities in Portland in 2013.  He says bringing back the night traffic shift will have a "measurable impact" on restoring public safety.
