Portland Police Audit

The City Auditor has released an external review of Portland Police activities around seven officer-involved shootings between 2004 and 2010. The report details what happened in each case, summarizes similarities, and offers 13 recommendations. Several of the recommendations are: 

  • The Portland Police Bureau (PPB) should maintain its partnership with Project Respond and make the Mobile Crisis Unit a permanent team, ideally with expanded personnel, hours, and scope.
  • PPB should reexamine its current policy on Taser use in light of current research indicating the elevated dangers of prolonged Taser use.
  • PPB should consider ways in which it can integrate its Critical Incident Management training curriculum into training opportunities for patrol officers.
