Department raising safety awareness for pedestrians through education campaign

The Gresham Police Department will be conducting a pedestrian safety operation from 3 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, June 20, at the intersection of East Powell Boulevard and Northeast Liberty Avenue.

The event is part of a police department effort to to raise pedestrian-safety awareness through education and enforcement of Oregon's right-of-way laws. Motorists must stop and yield to pedestrians who are either waiting to cross or are already crossing the roadway.

A grant from Oregon Impact and Oregon Department of Transportation is funding the safety operation. Additional safety exercises are scheduled during summer months, and in September as the school year begins.
