From the Front Lines

Ever wonder what it is really like as a First Responder in this crazy world we live in?   In 2021 PSC is going to be offering quarterly live video updates with an inside glimpse to life in the trenches for our police officers, fire fighters and 911 dispatchers.  Our first session will be, Thursday, April 1, 2021 from 7-7:45pm.  We will focus our discussion on the current state of policing and where it is heading.  Join Deputy Chief of Police (ret.) Bob Day as he interviews three distinguished guests – Portland Police Bureau Chief Chuck Lovell, an officer from a local police department, and Clackamas County Chaplain Mike Vermace.  We believe this fast moving and candid discussion will inspire and encourage you.   Please register at the following link so that you can receive the zoom invite.  We look forward to seeing you on Thursday, April 1st!
