Portland Street Response Pilot Program Expands

(Portland, OR)  --  The Portland Street Response pilot program is expanding its service area.  Under the program, paramedics and mental health counselors respond to calls where police aren't needed.  They had been using fire department boundaries in the Lents neighborhood, but they've determined using police bureau boundaries would work better.  The general area is from Southeast Division to Clatsop and 62nd Avenue to Powell Butte.  The expanded area will allow them to respond to more calls.
