Liaison Family Program

Our Liaison Family Program (LFP) connects police officers with families in the Portland area. Liaison Families can provide support, friendship, community history, community events, area introductions, and anything else that will help our new police officers learn about their community.

Our community members have the chance to share their different, dynamic, diverse voices and play a vital role in shaping the future of our city. We help make face-to-face connections between people who wish to participate, based on mutual trust and respect.

Since March of 2018, our Liaison Families and our police officers have been building relationships that have translated into change at an individual level. When our public servants hear, learn, and understand the needs of their community members, they can become true leaders of a better city that promotes equity and compassion.

how Can I become a liaison Family?

At Face-to-Face Portland, we do not define “family” in any particular way, as we embrace the true nature and personality of the City of Portland. We are a unique city and we know that there are unique families who make up our community! Face-to-Face Portland is looking for people in the Portland/Metro area who are interested in making change.

How does this work? By forming real, authentic relationships. It could take shape in the form of meals, special events, hiking, coffee, BBQs, texting, phone conversations, emails, visits to the movie theater, travel to unique places, introduction to other people in Portland, and sharing history that is important to the citizens of the community.

Contact (The) Amy Johnson 503.318.3582 or amy@facetofacepdx.org to learn more on how to engage in our program.
