Chief Mark Kroeker released the following statement on May 1, 2002: “The Multnomah County Grand Jury responsible for investigating the assault involving two off-duty Portland Police Officers Bureau has completed its responsibility. No other criminal indictments are expected. The Portland Police Bureau will now launch a full internal investigation. It is my direction that the internal investigation will provide a thorough and impartial scrutiny of the actions of the responding officers, sergeants, and lieutenants.

Once completed, I am committed to ensuring that the findings of both the criminal and internal investigation will be reviewed by the Management Review Team headed by Director of Services Nancy McPherson. This team will then recommend any required organizational changes.

After completing their finding, the Grand Jury presented me with a letter outlining their concerns. I am immediately releasing this letter, unedited, with my firm commitment that the men and women of the Portland Police Bureau remain dedicated to serve our citizens with compassion and integrity.”
