Public Crimes Data Dashboard
The Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office is now making available a crime data dashboard to the public through the agency’s website. The Crime Dashboard allows community members to access crime data by type, time and geographic area, as well as study historical trends and review specific time periods dating back to January 1, 2016, in areas patrolled by the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office. This includes unincorporated Multnomah County, and sheriff’s office contract cities of Fairview, Maywood Park, Troutdale and Wood Village.
“Access to this great tool will empower the communities we serve, and adds transparency to the calls we respond to and the work we do,” Sheriff Mike Reese said. “Community members will be able to review call volumes, types and locations at no cost and at any time.”
The dashboard will be updated no less than once a week. Access the Crime Dashboard directly through this link or by visiting MCSO.us, hovering over the Quick Access dropdown menu, then selecting Crime Dashboard.
The data does not include statistics from the Cities of Portland and Gresham nor the Port of Portland.

Oregon’s Eviction Moratorium Has Expired,
But Eviction Protection Is Still Available to Those Who Seek Rental Assistance
On June 30th, 2021, the statewide Oregon eviction moratorium expired—however, there is still eviction protection available to renters who apply for rental assistance.
Oregon Senate Bill 278 (SB 278), which went into effect July 1st, 2021, provides eviction protection for renters who apply for rental assistance and are able to provide application documentation to their landlord. Under SB 278 this protection is good for 60 days, however in Multnomah County renters may be entitled to 90 days of protection. This is important because both state and county rental assistance may take time to be allocated.
If you or someone you know is struggling to pay rent it is important to act now—both to secure assistance for present and past due rent, and to acquire protection from eviction for up to 90 days.
For more information and to find out how to apply for rental assistance please visit this webpage from Multnomah County: www.multco.us/rentrelief/apply .
Note: tenants cannot be evicted for owing rent for the months between April 2020 and June 2021, and have until February 28, 2022, to pay that rent back. There is assistance to help renters do so, but it is strongly suggested that renters in need apply as soon as possible to secure aid.
