Bend Police Chief Jeff Sale’s contract was terminated, effective today, Jan. 22. Sale
was an at-will employee, meaning the City Manager could terminate his employment
without cause at any time.


After considerable research and careful consideration, City Manager Eric King has
determined that a change in leadership is necessary to improve the culture of the
Police Department so it can best serve the community.


“I hold city department heads, and all staff, to high standards,” said King. “While it
can be difficult to make such staffing changes, it’s important to ensure that this
community receives the best public services possible.”


King appointed Police Captain Jim Porter as interim chief. Porter has been with the
department for 22 years. The City will initiate a search for a permanent police chief
later this year.

Help Puerto Rico
