PRK-1.08 - Portland Patrol Employees Designated as Park Officers at McCoy Park

PORTLAND PATROL EMPLOYEES DESIGNATED AS PARK OFFICERS AT MCCOY PARK
Administrative Rule Adopted by Bureau Pursuant to Rule Making Authority
ARB-PRK-1.08

 
Section 1 - Rule
 
Employees of Portland Patrol Services working at McCoy Park are hereby designated as Park Officers under Portland City Code 20.04.010 for purposes of providing security services and issuing Notices of Park Exclusions, under 20.12.265 PCC, at McCoy Park.

 
 
Section 2 - Rationale
 
Portland Patrol Services (PPS) has been contracted by Allied Property Group, working for Housing Authority of Portland, to provide security patrol services throughout the New Columbia housing development.  New Columbia geographically surrounds McCoy Park.  The City (Parks) can benefit by having PPS patrol McCoy Park as part of their overall neighborhood patrol.  In order to be effective, PPS officers need the authorization to issue Notices of Park Exclusions to enforce park rules and deal with problems.  This will also help prevent the park from becoming a refuge for those seeking to avoid PPS security as PPS helps enforce State Laws, City Code, and Park Rules, within the scope of private security patrol.
