Portland, Oregon renews contract with Schweers
Portland is the largest city in Oregon with a population of 609,000 and 2,300,000 people living in the metropolitan area. A pioneer in Parking Enforcement and Public Safety, Portland prides itself on cutting edge solutions. The city has a vibrant nightlife and an active tourist trade. As ambassadors of the city, the parking enforcement officers are encouraged to welcome visitors, help with directions and be a friendly face in the midst of a busy city. So although an officer’s major job is about enforcement, they are now also seen as performing a much broader range of services that benefit the community.
Schweers worked hand in hand with the municipality to develop its complex parking solution. Acting as partners and subsequently empowering each other they were able to find new solutions and thereby offer a higher degree of service to the public while increasing returns and benefits to the city.
