New Poll Spotlights Native Americans' Distrust of Portland Police

 


A new poll that surveyed Portlanders about their attitudes toward police showed Native American residents felt even more negatively than black Portlanders.

Mayor Charlie Hales commissioned the poll, which used online surveys as well as mailed questionnaires, to quiz 1,248 Portlanders about community relations with police. The survey is part of ongoing efforts, stemming from the 2014 settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice over the bureau's use of force, to improve police training.
