The Bend Park and Recreation District has seen an 84% surge in restroom incidents in 2023, involving drug use and vandalism, totaling 35 reports. Such issues can result in costly repairs and closures. To tackle this, the district hired private security guards through a $430,000, two-year contract with Trident Security. Past incident reports noted interactions with homeless individuals, leading to measures like taping restroom doors and imposing 30-day park bans for extended restroom use.
