Commissioner Novick appoints Dr. Sharon Meieran to DOJ Community Oversight Advisory Board

The mandated Community Oversight Advisory Board will serve a critical role in ensuring that the City is in compliance with the DOJ Settlement Agreement as we work to improve the interactions between Portland Police and Portlanders experiencing a mental health crisis. As an emergency room physician, Dr. Meieran has direct experience with individuals experiencing a mental health crisis. She’s been there when people in crisis are brought in by the police. She is passionate about making the system work as well as possible, and I’m pleased to appoint Dr. Meieran to board.
