BLUE RIBBON PANEL MEETS TO REVIEW CONTACT DATA

June 05, 2002 00:00

  

On Thursday, June 6, 2002, Chief Mark Kroeker will present the twelve month contact data for 2001 that has been collected on police stops to the Blue Ribbon Panel on Racial Profiling. The meeting will be held at Northeast Precinct, 449 N.E. Emerson, from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. in the precinct community room.

Chief Kroeker convened the Blue Ribbon Panel in 2000 to discuss racial profiling. The Blue Ribbon Panel issued a report of recommendations. Updates from the Portland Police Bureau on those recommendations will be discussed.

This will be the last meeting for the Blue Ribbon Panel members. Chief Kroeker will present Certificates of Appreciation to each member in recognition of their contributions and service to the Portland Police Bureau.

Chief Kroeker said that although this is the last meeting for this specific work group that “the goals of community partnership, better communication and better understanding of the needs of all our citizens are still the keys to community policing in this city. Work will continue on these goals and remain a high priority for me as Chief.”

The community is invited to attend.
