Chief Sizer Speaks

Pete Springer/OPB

Portland Police Chief Rosie Sizer has been in the spotlight lately over the shooting of Aaron Campbell, but there’s a lot more on the Chief’s plate than this one incident. She’s been focused on difficult issues such as police use of force and racial profiling since she took office in 2006 and she’s seen a lot in her career with the Bureau, which spans a quarter of a century.

She’s not the first female chief Portland has seen, but she is the first in recent memory and perhaps the only one to admit publicly (and proudly) that she’s been called “the B-word” more times than she can count.

What would you like to hear from Chief Sizer?
