PCCEP Settlement and Policy Subcommittee Meeting 6/5/24 | Protest Response Team Discussion

June 5 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

A note from Progress Portland: below are details from the PCCEP meeting invite. We are encouraging is every person who can possibly attend to show up and share your voice/thoughts on the re-forming of the Rapid Response Team which disbanded after one of the Portland Police team members was charged with excessive force during the 2020 Justice protests and the entire team quit.

An independent monitor issued a rather scathing report on how the Portland Police responded to the 2020 protests which can be read here. The city has paid out excess of $3 million to settle lawsuits stemming from the police response the summer of 2020.

PCCEP’s meeting is to hear from Chief Day, the city attorney’s office, and the mayor’s office on the plans the recreate the team and to open questions up from the public. Since they announced the rebuilding of the team, city council has already voted a 6% pay increase for anyone who joins the team and just approved $1.1 million for replenishing weapons and for training for the new team.

If you are not familiar with PCCEP, it is a committee mandated by a lawsuit from the US Department of Justice against the City of Portland and the Portland Police Bureau to act as a liaison between the Portland community and the Mayor’s Office, the DOJ, City Council, and the Police Bureau.

It is a unique arrangement in the Untied States and PCCEP is your conduit to having your voice heard directly to help shape the future of  policing and other aspects to ensure the safety and equity of every person in Portland. PCCEP makes recommendations using input from the community and evidence-based knowledge and practices. Please join the PCCEP Mailing list or watch for events here on our page.
