Therefore the only way to take a control of these protests and making Portland peaceful against is by taking actions against those who are being violent. Hence a  government policy to restore peace is much more important. And apart from that no any enforcement body can restore peace amidst this unrest.

Although the police department from different regions have said that they will try to look into the matter. And assign officers to take steps to bring this unrest to control.

Also another Sheriff from Washington has Pat Garrett has said that the violence in Portland is a result of the ‘lack of political support for public safety.’ Therefore the Government should look into the matter seriously. And look for policies and ways to restore peace in Portland.
