The mission of the Crime Prevention 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
