Directives for Universal Review and Comment

Directives Review – Request for Public Comment

The Portland Police Bureau is currently in the process of reviewing the following directive(s). This universal review period is open for all members of the public to submit comments or proposals regarding the content of this directive(s) for the next thirty calendar days.  Comments should be limited to a substantive review of the directive content or proposals for additional related content.  Comments should not include questions, as they will not be answered in this forum.  All comments are discussed internally during the drafting of proposed directives.  

In submitting any comments, commenters should be aware that their remarks may be subject to disclosure under public records requests and may be posted on this website.  Commenters have the option of posting anonymously.   

Prior to enactment by the Chief of Police, a finalized version of the directive(s) will again be posted for review for fifteen calendar days. 

The Portland Police Bureau thanks you in advance for expressing your views and will take each relevant comment into consideration.  While you may not receive an individual response to your comment, be assured that the Bureau’s commitment to community policing includes a serious commitment to reviewing public input as it relates to its policies.
