Background

The best description of United States v. City of Portland is on Wikipedia.

Documents pertaining to the case are scattered across several sites, including Wikipedia. They include –

  • The “COAB COCL” website. This site may be abandoned or incorporated with other current or new sites soon. (This website was destroyed by the City of Portland in February 2019.)
  • The Portland Police Bureau’s DOJ page.
  • The website for Rosenbuam & Associates – the Chicago-based contractors hired by the City of Portland to review to progress of the Police Bureau to complete the items in the settlement agreement.
  • Portland’s Committee on Community-Engaged Policing has a set of web pages, largely duplicative of the COAB COCL website, buried in the City of Portland’s website.
  • The Albina Ministerial Alliance’s Coalition for Justice and Police Reform has a website.
  • The Portland Police Association has a website.
