What should I do if I observe a homeless camp?

The City appreciates public reporting. Please call Oregon City Code Enforcement at 503-905-3665 or Oregon City Police Department Non-Emergency at 503-655-8211.

By providing an accurate location and description of the camp you will assist the responding officers in locating and contacting the occupants of the camp. Once the camp is located and the occupants have been contacted, what is actually done about the camp is dependent on many factors. The responding officers will work closely with the many resources available to determine the best course of action to take regarding the removal of the camp.
