The Ombudsman is your Rose City watchdog. We are here to make sure City government treats Portland residents and businesses fairly. We investigate complaints and identify ways to resolve them. As part of the City Auditor’s Office, we’re independent and impartial.
Mediation is an alternative to the traditional complaint and disciplinary process. It is a voluntary, confidential process where a professional mediator helps officers and community members talk directly to each other.
Independent Police Review (IPR) accepts complaints and commendations relating to sworn officers of the Portland Police Bureau. IPR is not part of the Portland Police Bureau. We are part of the City Auditor's Office.
