The Alliance is urging Portland Mayor Charlie Hales, Multnomah County Chair Deborah Kafoury and District Attorney Rod Underhill to restore the Illegal Drug Impact Areas (IDIA) program, which created a coordinated approach to police enforcement and county prosecution on lower-level street crimes in designated areas. The Alliance is concerned about the safety and livability in our parks and on our streets due to lack of enforcement of illegal activity such as camping, theft and open air drug dealing. The Alliance is urging that the IDIA program to be restored as an effective approach to enforcement and prosecution of illegal activity. Read the letter
