Over the last several months, WNA has worked to craft new language for our bylaws in an effort to make these guiding principles the best they can be for our organization. We’ve presented the proposed changes at several meetings, heard some additional feedback and incorporated changes. As always, we invite everyone’s participation! Will you join us as we vote to adopt our new bylaws?

The City Auditor’s Independent Police Review (IPR) division is recruiting volunteers to serve three-year terms on the Citizen Review Committee (CRC) – an advisory body to IPR and the Portland Police Bureau (Police Bureau). There are three immediate openings on CRC and up to four additional positions commencing on or before February 2014.

IPR is the city agency responsible for the civilian oversight of the Police Bureau. CRC members hear community and Police Bureau member appeals of police misconduct investigations, listen to public concerns regarding police conduct, engage in training and other activities to learn about policing, review Police Bureau policies and procedure, and advise IPR.

We anticipate that the size and scope of work of the CRC will increase due to the City of Portland’s pending settlement agreement with the United States Department of Justice. This will include service on the Police Review Board to make fact-based recommendations for discipline in use of force incidents to the Chief of Police and Police Commissioner.

Applications are available at the IPR office or online at www.portlandoregon.gov/auditor/ipr. Or, click here to view a printable and fillable PDF application. Candidates must be Portland, Oregon residents or business owners. Please return applications to the IPR office by 5:00 pm on Wednesday, March 13, 2013, via fax, mail, hand-delivery, or e-mail crc@portlandoregon.gov.

We would be happy to meet with you and/or interested parties at a community meeting to discuss CRC’s role in civilian oversight, the work of IPR, and police/community issues. Please let us know if we may be of further assistance.For questions on this volunteer opportunity please contact our Outreach Coordinator Irene Konev at 503 823 0146 or by email at Irene.konev@portlandorgon.gov.

Thank you very much for your support in our recruitment effort.
