Contact the Community Safety Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org
The mission of the Community Safety Committee is to partner with the Portland’s crime prevention services offered through the Office of Civic Life (formerly ONI). This partnership supports our Sellwood-Moreland community to prevent crime, reduce the fear of crime, increase livability and get neighbors involved in community policing efforts.

Abandoned shopping carts – The NFM Cart Rescue is sponsored by most larger grocery stores. Their message phone is: 1 (888) 55-CARTS (or 1-888-552-2787). They retrieve carts owned by:
- Safeway, Fred Meyer, Albertsons, Whole Food, QFC and WinCo
- If it’s not from one of the stores above, you’ll have to call the nonparticipating store directly and ask to speak with the Manager.
When calling tell them:
- the exact location (if in front of a house–the address, if near a power pole–the PGE pole number, on a corner–which quadrant of the intersection, etc.)
- the city it’s in
- the store it’s from
- your name and phone number so they can call you, if needed
