Portland Voters Approve Measure Creating PPB Oversight Board

(Portland, OR)  --  Voters in Portland are resoundingly approving a measure to create a civilian oversight board for the Portland Police Bureau.  The latest ballot counts show Measure 26-217 passing with 82-percent support.  Under the measure, the board would investigate all city officer misconduct complaints and impose discipline in cases where infractions were found.  The new body will replace the Independent Police Review, which has drawn criticism because it cannot make its findings public, and has no say in how officers are punished.
