Multnomah County Sheriff Mike Reese penned an open letter to the residents of Portland and the surrounding area this week, warning that violent crime is reaching record heights and may only get worse as the summer approaches. 

“I continue to be deeply concerned about current trends in community violence,” Sheriff Mike Reese wrote Friday. 

There were 102 people in jail for murder or attempted murder at the beginning of April, the most since the mid-1990s.

Cities across the country have seen a spike in homicides in recent years, but Portland’s homicide rate has surged at a far higher rate.

The city has already seen 25 homicides in the first three months of the year, setting itself up to break last year’s mark.

“This is not the only serious threat to public safety, however,” Reese wrote. “Record-high levels of traffic fatalities and overdose deaths are jeopardizing personal safety and devastating families and social support networks.” 

The Portland Police Bureau's budget was increased by .2 million last year after being cut by million in 2020.

Other parts of the United States have been dealing with the same problems. More than 31,000 people died in car crashes in the first nine months of 2021, which was most in the first nine months of any year since 2006, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Meanwhile, the CDC’s provisional data shows at least 105,000 drug overdose deaths last year nationwide, a 13% increase over 2020.
