PPB Releases Investigative Reports Related to January Officer-Involved Shooting - 03/07/19

Today, the Portland Police Bureau is releasing the investigative files related to the fatal shooting of Andre Gladen, on January 6, 2019. The files can be found on the Bureau's Open Data page at: https://www.portlandoregon.gov/police/article/714859

The investigative material does not include an interview with the officer involved; it does include the witness statements and detective reports. The involved officer was interviewed as part of the administrative review process within 48 hours, as outlined in the Bureau's directive. The administrative review cannot be considered for the criminal investigation. As part of the criminal investigation, the officer provided testimony to the Multnomah County Grand Jury; those transcripts will be released when completed. The officer involved has returned to regular duty status, as per policy.

To assist with understanding the review process, the Police Bureau is releasing a graphic that depicts the flow of information and each step. https://www.portlandoregon.gov/police/article/714845

"The Portland Police Bureau is committed to transparency and we released the investigative files as soon as appropriate," said Chief Danielle Outlaw. "We understand there will still be questions from the community. Some of these questions we hope will be answered when we are able to view the Grand Jury transcripts. Internally, we will continue with the comprehensive review process."

The Portland Police Bureau Directive that provides guidelines for members' actions related to reporting and investigating deadly force incidents may be found at: https://www.portlandoregon.gov/police/article/656780

The Portland Police Bureau has an open data portal for officer-involved-shootings, dating back to 2010. The portal may be found here: https://www.portlandoregon.gov/police/ois

PPB Provides Context to School Arrest Data (Photo) - 03/07/19

Some information was recently included in a City Budget Office report referencing "arrests" made on school properties for individuals under 21 years of age. This information was published without context. First, the definition for "arrest" related to this information is as follows:
* The term arrest for youth is not the same as for an adult.
* The majority of the calls School Resource Officers (SROs) handle that end in an "arrest" simply means the SRO completes the paperwork to initiate charges through the Juvenile Justice System. A parent or guardian may elect to take the youth home or have the youth return to class (depending on the circumstances).
* All of these arrests stem from calls for service generated by community members, parents, or faculty.

In the Fall of 2019, a report was generated by the Portland Police Bureau's Strategic Services Division analyzing School Resource Officer Activity for the 2017-2018 fiscal year. This report included information on calls for service, general offenses, and arrests:
* Of the 20 "arrests" by SRO's during school hours, 17 happened on school grounds and 3 did not.
* Of the three that did not take place on school grounds, one involved an adult who was taken into custody on a Max train vandalizing a car parked outside of a school; one involved a youth who was taken into custody at home, processed for pictures and fingerprints, and subsequently dropped off at school; and the third involved a school in another jurisdiction.
* When this data was originally compiled, the analysis was conducted by address. Upon further analysis of the content of the reports, it was determined that the address was incorrectly auto-populated (automatically assigned by the records management system) in the arrest reports and the arrests occurred at locations other than school properties.

To view the entire report, go to https://www.portlandoregon.gov/police/article/714816 Attached to this news release is a chart that breaks down the charges for the cases highlighted above. (PHOTO)

In total, 4 of the 17 were discretionary in nature and resulted in the officer's determination that a report needed to be made. This means that in 13 of the cases, complainants were adamant that a report be made or the charges mandated arrest. These cases are confidential in nature due to the ages of those involved.

Of the non-warrant cases, the disposition was formal probation for 8 of the cases, diverted for a formal accountability agreement for 3 cases, and District Attorney no-complaint for 3 cases (i.e. no charges were issued). Formal accountability agreements, authorized under ORS 419C.230-242, are voluntary contracts with youth that allow them to fulfill certain conditions (e.g., counseling, community service, drug or alcohol treatment, etc.) in lieu of a formal petition being filed. None of these cases resulted in a final outcome of incarceration.

"The Portland Police Bureau values safety within and around our schools as a priority," said Chief Danielle Outlaw, "These numbers are small compared with the 3,866 calls for service during school hours on school property in this timeframe. We understand these incidents can have lasting impacts on those involved, which is why it is imperative for SRO's to build relationships with students, parents and faculty so they have that foundation when they respond to calls at schools."

Portland police monitoring rumors of bias attacks - 02/18/19

On Sunday, February 10, 2019, police responded to a report of an assault in the area of SE 15th Avenue and SE Morrison Street. The officer who responded talked to the community member, but the officer noted that the person was intoxicated and appeared to have fallen. The person was transported by ambulance for medical treatment.

The victim called to make an assault report later from the hospital. Initially it was not reported as a bias attack, but online posts suggested the victim believed it may have been. At that time, the case was assigned to bias crime detectives in the Detectives Division Assault Detail for follow up. Detectives reached out to community members, including the reporting person. So far the detectives have been unable to confirm that a crime occurred or that anyone else was involved in the injury to the reporting person. However, the investigation continues, and detectives ask for anyone with information to come forward.

Since then, PPB has learned of numerous social media posts suggesting there have been a rash of attacks on LGTBQ community members in southeast Portland. As of now Bias Crimes Detectives have not received any recent bias related attacks.

PPB has proactively reached out to community stakeholders to brief them on what we have learned, and to encourage any victims or witnesses to contact law enforcement.

The Bureau investigates all reports of bias-motivated crimes and encourages any member of our community who is the victim of such a crime to contact law enforcement. Under Oregon law, bias crimes are defined as any criminal act that targets a victim based on the suspect's perception of the victim's race, color, religion, sexual orientation, disability, or national origin. Detectives work to determine whether or not bias elements are present during the reported crime that align with Oregon law as defined in the Oregon Revised Statutes (ORS):

ORS 166.165 - Intimidation in the First Degree - https://www.oregonlaws.org/ors/166.165

ORS 166.155 - Intimidation in the Second Degree - https://www.oregonlaws.org/ors/166.155

If you have been the victim of a bias crime assault or you are witnessing one, immediately call 9-1-1. If you have been the victim of a different bias crime and the suspect is no longer present, such as vandalism or graffiti, please call the non-emergency line at 503-823-3333.
