(Portland, OR) -- Mayor Ted Wheeler is asking City Council to approve more funding for Portland Police. The money would go toward hiring more officers, Portland Street Response, and body worn cameras. Over the next three years, Wheeler says the bureau needs to hire 200 armed and 100 unarmed officers. He's proposing signing bonuses up to 25-thousand dollars for the first 50 officers. Wheeler also wants to rehire officers who are retired to temporarily fill the gaps until permanent officers are hired.
