The Portland Police Bureau is seeking volunteers to serve on its Training Advisory Council; there currently are eight vacant positions. This council was established in 2012 by the Portland City Council to advise the Chief of Police on training standards, practices, and outcomes by examining training content, delivery, tactics, policy, tools, equipment and facilities.
The Training Advisory Council meets a minimum of six times a year. Meetings are at the Portland Police Bureau Training Complex at 14912 NE Airport Way on the second Wednesday of every other month starting in January. Members are occasionally expected to commit additional flexible hours outside of regular meetings. The term of service is two years.
Selected applicants will be required to undergo a standard criminal background check and will participate in a series of orientation activities that will prepare them to be an effective member of the council. Selected members will also need to provide a brief public biography.
The application deadline is October 20, 2017.
