It's great to know that our Portland Police Department is out there protecting our amazing city during this crazy time.

These men and women are really showing their bravery by being right in the thick of it.

We found this cute photo of K9 Barni patrolling the Portland International Jetport. Looks pretty quiet.

Good job with the social distancing thing people!

 

 

K9 Barni is part of the PPD K9 team and works with Officer Michelle Cole.
