Working with community members and subject matter experts, the Police Accountability Commission will engage with a diverse cross-section of Portlanders to communicate about policy options and eventual recommendations to City Council.

The Police Accountability Commission needs to ensure its work is grounded in recommendations from a wide variety of stakeholders, and that community members who serve on the commission have the best possible data to make decisions. That's why the City is looking for an Research and Policy Coordinator to support the PAC as it works to build a new system dealing with investigation, administrative discipline, and oversight.

The Research and Policy Coordinator will develop research reports, find relevant links and documents, and circulate them to PAC members. The Research and Policy Coordinator will also assist in communications to the public and to other parts of the City government. These communications will convey detailed information in accessible formats so that interested parties can understand the PAC’s recommendations, and what data the PAC uses to make those decision. This will help shape community knowledge about what’s working and not working in police oversight, and their vision for the future of public safety in Portland. 

Are you a research or policy professional who's excited about the opportunity to amplify Portlanders' voices in our government and police oversight? Are you passionate about accountability and civic participation, and committed to anti-racism and equity? Or do you know someone who is a great fit, that you can forward this email to?

Then we hope you read more about the Police Accountability Commission Research and Policy Coordinator position and apply by February 9, 2023.
