The Central Eastside Industrial Council has started a security pilot project to support the neighbors and service providers in the Central Eastside around St. Francis Church and City Team Ministries. In response to the area’s desire for a greater feeling of security, the CEIC has contracted a security team from Northwest Enforcement. They were chosen because of their approach to maintaining order while being compassionate, respectful, and helpful to our vulnerable houseless population. They will work in tandem with the Central City Concern Clean Start program to identify and address hot spots for trash and needles, as well as graffiti.
The CEIC Security Committee was formed to support this program. It is comprised of a network of valuable partners that include individuals from area service organizations, the City and County, local law enforcement, local businesses and residents who will meet monthly to help with referrals and services, exchange ideas and information, and share best practices so as to properly implement the Security Pilot project in the area. All committee meetings are open to the public.
