The Portland Police Bureau has posted investigative materials, the internal review, the Training Division review, and the termination letter associated with Officer Dane Reister who was terminated from the Portland Police Bureau on October 15, 2013.
These materials were released after an order to do so by the Clackamas County District Attorney's Office who considered an appeal by members of the Portland media.
Officer Dane Reister was terminated for violations of Directive 315.30 (Unsatisfactory Performance) and Directive 1050.00 (Less Lethal Weapons and Munitions).
The violations stem from the June 30, 2011, incident involving the shooting of lethal rounds rather than less lethal shotgun rounds, which critically injured William Monroe.
On October 15, Chief Mike Reese stated, "This has been a long and thorough investigation, which had complexities due to the pending criminal charges. The events of June 30th devastated the lives of those involved, but we hope that this action will bring some sense of closure."
