Portlanders are increasingly worried about their safety as crime continues to spiral out of control.
- 60% of respondents had a negative impression of downtown Portland due to homelessness, vandalism, and violent crime.
- Almost half felt “somewhat unsafe” or “very unsafe” walking alone at night in their neighborhood.
- Of those who felt unsafe, 78% feared physical assault the most.
“Oregonians are living in fear as crime continues to spiral out of control,” said CLF Press Secretary Cally Perkins. “Families deserve a representative who will support law enforcement and stand up for public safety, not another criminal coddling politician like Jamie McLeod -Skinner.”
