Department of Justice Materials and Updates

 The Portland Police Bureau (PPB) recognizes the shifting nature of police work and of what it means to be a first responder. Operating in an environment of diminished resources for community mental health, housing, and other safety net resources, Police Officers are responding to twice the number of suicide calls than 10 years ago and an ever increasing number of calls for service related to individuals in a mental health crisis. PPB recognizes that officers need to be fully prepared to meet the demands of policing in Portland today.


The Portland Police Bureau looks forward to continued engagement with all parties involved in the DOJ settlement agreement. Information currently found on this link includes: meeting times and locations of various advisory councils and committees; an action item matrix associated with the DOJ settlement; information regarding the Bureau’s Behavioral Health Unit; and DOJ-related documents, including information on training, policies and internal affairs investigations. 


The Portland Police Bureau will use this website as a clearinghouse of information related to the Department of Justice.
