Police Directives

The Portland Police Bureau directs member action through the establishment of policy, procedure, and rule, as found within Directives. Directives serve as the foundation for all Bureau operations, which is then elaborated upon by way of member training and supervision. Directives provide members with information to act decisively, consistently, and legally. When unusual circumstances are encountered, Directives help members identify the best course of action to follow. Therefore, Directives promote confidence and professional contact among members, thereby demonstrating members are good stewards of public trust.
