INTRODUCTIONThe United States and the City of Portland (“City”) (collectively “the Parties”)recognize that the vast majority of the City’s police officers are honorable lawenforcement professionals who risk their physical safety and well-being for the publicgood. The Parties enter into this Agreement with the goal of ensuring that the PortlandPolice Bureau (“PPB”) delivers police services to the people of Portland in a manner thateffectively supports officer and public safety, and complies with the Constitution andlaws of the United States. Specifically, this Agreement is targeted to strengtheninitiatives already begun by PPB to ensure that encounters between police and personswith perceived or actual mental illness, or experiencing a mental health crisis, do notresult in unnecessary or excessive force.

United States v. City of Portland et al.,
 Case No. __________ 
The Parties recognize there has been an accelerating movement toward a model of  police management that relies on both existing and still-developing management andmonitoring tools and systems. This model requires both vision and fiscal commitment,and is necessary to legitimate policing. The United States recognizes that PPB hasendeavored to adopt components of modern management despite being a leanorganization, and greatly appreciates the City’s commitment, in this agreement, to provide PPB the fiscal support necessary to rapidly and fully implement a complete state-of-the-art management and accountability system. The Parties further recognize that theability of police officers to protect themselves and the community they serve is largelydependent on the quality of the relationship they have with that community. Public andofficer safety, constitutional policing, and the community’s trust in its police force are,thus, interdependent. The full and sustained implementation of this Agreement isintended to protect the constitutional rights of all members of the community,continuously improve the safety and security of the people of Portland, keep PPBemployees safe, and increase public confidence in PPB, all in a cost-effective, timely, andcollaborative manner. The United States commends the City for the steps it already hastaken to implement measures to effectuate these goals.To fully achieve these goals, this Agreement requires the City and PPB to further revise or, where needed, adopt new policies, training, supervision, and practices in thefollowing areas: the use of force, training, community-based mental health services,crisis intervention, employee information system, officer accountability, and communityengagement.
