The Portland Police Bureau is releasing the Strategic Insights Report, which summarizes the major perceptions and findings from the data collection and outreach efforts recently conducted as part of the strategic planning process. The report can be found here: https://www.portlandoregon.gov/police/article/725900
The purpose of this outreach was to assess the perception of policing in Portland and to provide guidance in developing the Bureau's five-year Strategic Plan. The Strategic Insights Report includes information collected through community and bureau focus groups, public meetings, sworn and professional staff surveys, and a community survey. The Portland Police Bureau's Strategic Insights Report was completed by outside consultant Coraggio Group in partnership with JLA Public Involvement.
"The Strategic Insights Report is not the Strategic Plan, but a tool to help guide us in the development of a plan," said Chief Danielle Outlaw. "Thank you to all the community members and Bureau members who shared their perceptions and feedback with us. Some of this information demonstrates to us that we need to do a better job communicating what we do and why we do it."
The following is a breakdown of the respondents:
o Community survey (which was posted online) was answered by 3,100 respondents.
o 15 community specific focus groups, with approximately 165 participants
o 3 public meetings with approximately 120 participants
o 35 one-on-one interviews with stakeholders
o Four internal focus groups with 65 sworn and professional staff members and some input from pre-existing PPB sworn and professional surveys
