(Portland, OR) -- Portland's Police Memorial to officers killed in the line of duty was vandalized this week. Police believe it happened overnight between Tuesday and Wednesday. Aaron Schmautz, President of the Portland Police Association, says it's a place of remembrance. Portland City Council and the Mayor releases a statement saying, quote, "This ugly criminal act seeks only to fuel divisive and destructive rhetoric that is not representative of who we are as a city." The City of Portland will work with the Portland Police Historical Society to repair the damage.
