The National Police Foundation Will Conduct Independent Assessment of PPB Demonstration Response

The City selected the National Police Foundation to conduct an independent assessment of the Portland Police Bureau’s response to mass demonstrations and First Amendment Assemblies after Mayor Wheeler called for an independent investigation reviewing PPB’s actions leading up to and during demonstrations involving alt-right and anti-fascist protestors. The assessment will include PPB communications with protestors.

The goals of the assessment are as follows:

   -   To independently assess PPB’s response to demonstrations on June 4, 2017 and August 4, 2018 and other relevant incidents from a variety of perspectives that include PPB personnel, community groups and members, and other stakeholders.

   -   Conduct analysis of where improvements can be made in PPB policy, planning, practice, training, tactics, staffing, and resources.

   -   Identify ways to strengthen communication and relationship building with community members and demonstrators.

The City chose the National Police Foundation because they had the most comprehensive proposal, along with the strongest team. They’ve also conducted similar work in the past.
