Community members packed City Council yesterday afternoon to testify in support of Commissioner Randy Leonard’s proposed ordinance to strengthen the Independent Police Review Division. President of the Portland Chapter of the National Lawyers Guild, Ashlee Albies, was quoted saying “The police have power and authority that is unmatched in our society. A system of checks and balances is all that we ask.” The council decided to continue the hearing on March 31, 2010 at 6pm. Hope to see you there!
