DOJ Progress

The U.S. Department of Justice in 2011 began investigating Portland Police practices, particularly related to those experiencing mental health crisis. In 2012, the agency found that the Police Bureau needed to reform its policies and training. When Mayor Hales took office in 2013, he embraced the resulting agreement for police reform, and has been working to implement the terms of the settlement.
