Police Oversight Update: Portland City Council Passed IPR Reform Ordinance

Yesterday, the Portland City Council unanimously passed the IPR reform ordinance. The NLG, as part of a broader effort led by the Albina Ministerial Alliance Coalition, supports the reform. This is a big step in the right direction, but there is still a lot of work to be done. The NLG will participate as part of a stakeholder group to push for greater independent oversight of the police in the upcoming 90 day review period.
