Alternatives to calling the Portland Police Bureau
A Mt Tabor neighbor shared with the group* this website that has a list of When You Need Help contacts, which can be used before, after, or instead of calling the police:
Don't Call The Police: Community-based alternatives to police in Portland, Oregon.
Don't forget there is also 211 Info, which also has contact information for When You Need Help.

Note from Laura: For some reason, WIX (our website and blogging platform) does not show the blog post publication date (unless you peer at the URL). This seems to be a thing or trend with website and blog designers and content creators, i.e. not telling readers when the site's pages or posts were updated or published, but it's very annoying so: this blog post was published on 2/6/2022
