Chief Announces Command Changes/Promotions

June 15, 2004 00:00


On June 15, 2004, Chief Derrick Foxworth announced command changes/promotions for the Portland Police Bureau. The changes are due to recent and pending retirements in the command staff. Chief Foxworth made the changes after meeting with command staff one-on-one, to listen to their career goals and hear their input regarding changes.

“While considering these changes, I needed to weigh what was best for the organization; how to best match people’s skills with the needs of each RU, as well as provide a continuity within the organization,” said Chief Foxworth in an internal memo to Bureau members. “Please be assured that I made these decisions after a thoughtful and lengthy consideration, and that I am confident these changes will ensure the Bureau has strong leadership and effective command.”
