For over 15 years, public safety stakeholders have met monthly as Multnomah County’s Local Public Safety Coordinating Council (“LPSCC”) to coordinate their policies and operations and to collectively address issues critical to public safety. The Council, co-chaired by Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler and Multnomah County Chair Deborah Kafoury, also directs the work of several subcommittees and smaller workgroups that focus on emerging issues within the justice system, such as youth violence prevention, law enforcement agency alignment, pre-trial supervision, and mental health services in the justice system.
