UPDATE: The mayor's office has since announced that this event has been cancelled.
Mayor Wheeler's office will host a community forum on Portland’s Independent Police Review Division, a program of the City Auditor’s Office, from 6:30-8:30 pm on Wednesday July 25th at the Taborspace Dining Room, 5441 SE Belmont Street, Portland.
Panelists will discuss IPR’s processes for investigations and reviewing policy as well as answer community questions about the Portland Police Bureau’s discipline process.
Panelists include Constantin Severe, director of the IPR; KC Jones, IPR senior management analyst; and Eric Berry, the IPR's lead investigator.
The Mayor’s Office is also spearheading a new program – the Portland Committee on Community-Engaged Policing which will develop recommendations for how the Portland Police Bureau can better engage the community in its development of policies that directly affect Portlanders.
The committee will focus on racial justice, constitutional policing and mental health issues.
Part of committee’s role is to host community forums to continue the conversation with Portlanders about public safety and police accountability.
The Mayor’s office will host interim community forums until the Portland Committee on Community-Engaged Policing has been established and its members are seated.
These interim meetings are being held the last Wednesday of every month.
