Over the past few years, numerous news articles and statistics have been published designating Portland as a city with an exceptional burglary problem. Concern about the rate of reported burglary in the metropolitan area led the City Club of Portland to establish a Burglary Study Committee to investigate and report on the rate of burglary in Multnomah County, and to evaluate efforts to address the problem. The Committee was also charged to consider changes in the level and types of efforts used to address burglary.
