Posted on 12/02/2018 5:00:42 PM PST by lowbridge
Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler plans to bring a new policing pilot program before City Council for final approval on Wednesday, Dec. 5.
The Public Safety Support Specialists, or PS3s, will be non-sworn officers who do not carry guns.
"They will be engaged in the community in non-emergency calls, so that's things like property crimes, break-ins," Wheeler tells WW.
The PS3s grew out of a proposal in the 2016 police union contract approved under then-Mayor Charlie Hales to create Community Service Officers who would respond to minor property crimes and nuisance calls, among other things.
To fund the program, Wheeler cut the Mounted Patrolcops on horsebackfrom the 2017-2018 city budget.

How very British of you shithead.
It sounds like these will be cleanup personnel, who show up at a crime scene when all risk of danger has passed.
I’d like to send this idiot mayor two signs for his front and back doors:
THIS IS A GUN FREE HOME
Or sitting ducks for BLM terrorists.
That is so woke.
What could go wrong?
I’m betting good money that this is deliberately being floated with the expectation that antifa members will immediately sign up. And then they’ll be given brown shirts to wear. You watch...
You’d have to have a death wish to apply for one of those jobs (or an epic-level moron).
THIS IS THE ANSWER TO ALL THE CRIME!!!!!1
I SUPPORT IT 100 PERCENT!!
TOO OFTEN officers are shooting back when being fired at.
It has to stop.
Not just stupid, but dangerous.
See how long it lasts when the first unarmed officer is pulled out of his/her patrol car and stomped to death.
I LOVE your posts.
First, because they are spot on.
Second, because they distract from mine sometimes :)
This mayor has the mental acumen of a canned ham.
LOL unarmed cops..gee the perps are gonna be scared now/sarc
How about APE?
Aux police enforcement. Pay min wage.
What could go wrong?
“Portland police! Stop or...I’ll say stop again!”
First they try to disarm American citizens. Then try try to disarm the police. Weaken USA as much as possible for the takeover.
They are going to have to earn those insane public union pensions now...
