The City’s Police Citizen Review Subcommittee will host an informational meeting - open to the public - regarding the Police Citizens Review Subcommittee’s work on Wednesday, February 12 from 6:00 - 8:00 PM in the Library at Portland High School. 

The meeting will be the first in a series of six informational meetings that will explain the role and purpose of the Subcommittee. Subsequent meetings will also be held in city school locations (Casco Bay High School, Deering High School, Reiche Elementary/Community Center, East End Elementary/Community Center, Riverton Elementary/Community Center) over the next several months in order to further outreach efforts. 

The PCRS reviews investigations of alleged officer misconduct and helps to promote fair and professional policing as well as a layer of public accountability. The Subcommittee makes recommendations for enhancing public confidence in investigations. The group reviews all investigation materials and Internal Affairs reports for fairness, thoroughness, objectivity, and timeliness. 

Citizens can submit complaints, commendations, and/or general feedback by filling out this form.

The PCRS was established by the City Council in November 2001. It is a subcommittee of the Civil Service Commission. It consists of seven volunteer members who are civilians and Portland residents. Members are appointed to three year terms by the City Council. 

WHEN: Wednesday, February 12, 2020 from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
WHERE:  Portland High School, Library, 284 Cumberland Avenue
