[ARCHIVED] Street Crimes Unit Helps Code Compliance Abate House at 810 W. 28th

Yesterday, May 21, Eugene Police Street Crimes Unit and City of Eugene Code Compliance worked together on boarding up 810 W. 28th Avenue.  


The residence has generated numerous complaints and calls for service. COE Code Compliance has been attempting to work with the individuals for the last several months to correct issues. Despite their efforts, the occupants failed to accept responsibility for their lack of actions. 


There were between eight and 10 people staying at the house without any water or electricity. Neighbors reported the occupants stealing water from their houses and complained about the noise from generators running for electricity.

The SCU has been focusing on prolific offenders, who are identified through intelligence-based policing, public tips and other sources. They have been proactively responding across the city to quality of life issues as they arise, using all available resources and partners such as community groups, neighborhood associations and city services. 


The unit makes a dynamic difference in a variety of public safety issues including on emerging crimes and neighborhood livability issues. This team creates capacity within the organization to address and solve problems throughout the city of Eugene. SCU is a tangible outcome of the one-time,18-month bridge funding by Eugene City Council that is dedicated to targeting immediate and acute community safety system issues while working toward mission-critical enhancements that need to be addressed through a longer-term and broader community safety initiative. The unit currently consists of a lieutenant, a sergeant and four officers. The team will expand to include another sergeant and four additional officers as staffing allows.
