Review for Operation Nightwatch Portland, Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 3 stars  

The Night Watch helps prevent neighborhood crimes in evening and make downtown Portland attractive for nightlife and dining by helping remove homeless from sidewalks where there may be begging and accosting diners and shoppers, and instead control them in a carefully supervised environment.

From what I understand however there is no or little if any accountability there. There is no case management, intake or any methods to keep the homeless accountable in their recovery from addiction and antisocial behaviors. It thus attracts a lot of chronic cases for years and years. Nevertheless we as residents and business owners of downtown Portland are happy to know that there is Night Watch that keeps eyes on the worst of the worst bums so we do not have to deal with them. It's kind of like having a babysitter. Please support this charity as without Night Watch all hell will break loose.
