PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Sixteen people were arrested during the week of Dec. 18 as officers performed extra patrols in downtown Portland.

Portland Police Bureau said officers from Central, East, and North Precincts helped with the patrols near Pioneer Square during a two-day period. PPB said the purpose of the patrols was to address livability issues in the downtown area.

During the patrols, officers recovered two suspected stolen bicycles, seized over $1,200 in cash, and four and a half ounces of illegal narcotics.

PPB said officers also helped connect multiple people with the Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion (LEAD) program. The program allows patrol officers to offer low-level drug offenders a path to treatment instead of a trip to jail.
