All Portland police officers are barred from working together with federal officers under new policies the City Council passed late July 22.
The resolutions state that any member of the Portland Police Bureau who “provides, requests, or willingly receives operational support from militarized federal forces” will face disciplinary measures. They also block police from using force against or arresting journalists or legal observers.
Unanimously passed by Commissioners Chloe Eudaly, Ted Wheeler, Amanda Fritz, and Jo Ann Hardesty, the new rules went into effect immediately.
