Three questions provided the framework for the report:
1) What needs to occur so that well-intended employees exercise good judgement in their workplace behavior? 2) Do employees have the tools they need to assist them in exercising good judgement and decision making in their work environment? 3) If not, what can managers do to improve or develop systems and processes so that employees, when faced with legal, ethical, or moral dilemmas, make choices that are consistent with the Bureau’s values?
While Chief Kroeker and the MRT believe the Portland Police Bureau is a healthy organization, they also recognize that developing and maintaining public trust is essential for any police organization. To facilitate dialogue with the communities, Chief Kroeker has asked Police Bureau managers to participate in a series of meeting designed to provide input into the final report. Copies of the draft report are available, via e-mail, by contacting the Police Bureau at (503) 823-0000.
