Portland Officers Declining Opportunity to Join Gun Violence Unit

Portland Officers Declining Opportunity to Join Gun Violence Unit

The uniformed squad, dubbed the Focused Intervention Team, is designed to fight gun violence proactively with a patrol presence on Portland streets. The plan has been to have the team cover seven days a week to get guns off the street directed by police intelligence, identify people involved in recent shootings and “interrupt the cycle of violence.”
