Outside reviews of officer-involved shootings and in-custody deaths

The official seal of the City of Portland, Oregon appears next to the office's name: Independent Police Review. The background is a photograph of Portland looking at the Hawthorne bridge from the east side of the Willamette river.
The OIR Group presents their reports of closed investigations of Portland Police Bureau officer-involved shootings, uses of deadly force, and in-custody deaths.

City Code requires that Independent Police Review (IPR) retain the services of an outside expert to review completed investigations of officer-involved shootings and in-custody deaths.

Since 2010, The OIR Group has served as the City’s outside expert to review these closed cases and provide their insights and recommendations to the City.

Older reviews were completed by the Police Assessment Resource Center.
