In the coming weeks, Portland City Council will vote on whether to move forward with a Gunshot Detection Pilot.
PCCEP is hosting a town hall on Gunshot Detection Systems including ShotSpotter and EAGL Technology to hear community concerns, questions, and feedback about the technology and any associated future policies. PCCEP hopes to hear input on the following questions: Is Gunshot Detection a good fit for our City? If not, why not? If so, how should it be implemented?
Who We Are
PCCEP is a group of 13 community members who are independent from the City and PPB. Our work includes independent assessment of the implementation of the DOJ Settlement Agreement and gathering input and exchanging information about PPB policies and practices.
In accordance with City and State guidelines regarding the COVID-19 coronavirus and to do our part in our community health and wellness, PCCEP meetings will be held via Zoom. Questions? PCCEPinfo@portlandoregon.gov.
To help ensure equal access to our programs, services, and activities, the City of Portland will reasonably modify policies/procedures and provide auxiliary aids/services to persons with disabilities. If there are ways we can help you more fully participate in this process, please contact PCCEP staff support at PCCEPinfo@portlandoregon.gov. Use City TTY 503-823-6868, or use Oregon Relay Service: 711
Prior to the meeting, members may provide written public comment to PCCEP. Public comment related to the items under discussion at a specific meeting will be circulated to committee members if received by 8 AM, two days prior to the meeting, to allow committee members to read them in advance, and will also be part of the public record of the meeting.
