This paper, presented on October 12, 1977, contains Portland City Commissioner Charles R. Jordan's plans for the development of the Portland Police Force and the Bureau's new relationship with the African American community. In addressing the rise in crime rates in the last ten years he proposes to recruit women and minority police officers from outside Portland, to supplement active patrol officers with non-sworn support staff, and to encourage community members to adopt the crime prevention measures which have already proved successful. He then calls for adjustment on both sides of the police/community divide. Visit City of Portland Archives for more http://efiles.portlandoregon.gov/record/9692
